Oklahoma’s Grand Lake O’ the Cherokee
With over 1,300 miles of shoreline AND over 46,500 surface acres…Grand Lake is a BIG Lake.
From the Pensacola Dam to Twin Bridges State Park – and everything in-between, including Elk River area, Grove, Honey Creek, Monkey Island, Horse Creek, Duck Creek, Drowning Creek, Ketchum Cove, and more – there are Grand Lake memories waiting to be made.
Cannonballs off the dock. Rafting up in The Drip or Woodard on a sunny afternoon. Catching crappie in the morning and eating them in the evening. Early morning fishing and spectacular sunsets.
Life at Grand Lake – whether it’s a lifetime or a weekend – gives you so many opportunities to make lasting memories with the people who matter most to you. And we think that those are the kind of days worth savoring… the kind you’ll never forget.
