Lake History

Grand Lake of the Cherokees (created in 1940) is located near I-44 in North East Oklahoma and is a 60,000 acre water sports paradise. The massive reservoir stretches 66 miles through a beautiful area of the Ozark foothills called Oklahoma's "Green Country". Grand Lake's 1,300 miles of shoreline offers a wide variety of recreation and is dotted with home sites, resorts and marinas. Grand lake is so large, it's shoreline is longer than the California coast!

Many things bring visitors back to Grand Lake; but fishing, boating, skiing, camping, and just plain "water and bird watching" are among the most often mentioned. And there are festivals, fairs, flea markets and rodeos throughout the spring, summer and autumn months to interest most anyone. Don't miss Grove's annual Pelican Festival, held each September when great flocks of the American White Pelican make their annual 6 week stop-over at Grand Lake (on their way from Canada to South America).
