See the Tenkiller Ferry Lake website for additional information. Primary recreational opportunities are listed below.

Directions and Factoids
Directions: From Muskogee, 21 miles southeast on OK 10, 7 miles east on OK 10A.

Factoid: Recreation opportunities abound in the Lake Tenkiller area. Nestled in the Cookson Hills of eastern Oklahoma, this body of water is known as "Oklahoma's Clear Water Wonderland" and its reputation is well deserved. The lake is well known by fisherman, pleasure boaters and scuba divers as the best place for water-based activities. Just the fact that there are 10 marinas and over 20 launching ramps here should tell you something. Camping is also big on Tenkiller with 14 campgrounds operated by the Corps, State of Oklahoma, and concessionaires. Types of camping range from primitive to full hookup and are pretty evenly spread out from one end of the lake to the other. Another outdoor activity while in the lake area would be to hike one or more of the three nature trails. The trails vary in length from 1 1/4 miles to over 2 miles. Spectacular vistas, rock formations and many species of wildlife are just a few of the things to take in as you hike along. Almost all project lands are open to public hunting except for parks and around the dam and control structures. Principal species hunted are whitetail deer, turkey, rabbit and squirrel. A map of public hunting areas is available from the project office and it is included in the public hunting atlas published by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. State laws apply on these lands so be familiar with the rules before you hunt or fish. Most of all, the Corps of Engineers at Tenkiller Ferry Lake wants you to have a safe and enjoyable visit. You, our customer, are important to us and we want you to come back and see us again.
