Information: Eufaula Lake is a reservoir in Oklahoma. It is located on the Canadian River, 27 mi (43 km) upstream from its confluence with the Arkansas River and near the town of Eufaula. It is the largest lake in the state of Oklahoma . Construction of the 975 metres long dam wall began in 1956 and was completed in 1964. The dam holds back a lake area of over 412 square kilometres. A hydroelectric powerstation provides power from the lake waters. The lake and surrounds are popular boating, fishing and hunting destinations.

The shoreline ranges from vast expanses of sandy beaches to rocky bluffs. Boaters traveling through the Standing Rock area can admire the beauty that was admired by Spanish explorers. Over 250 housing developments with lake homes are located in close proximity to the shoreline. Most of these areas are within walking distance to the lake. Many offer public boat ramp access within the development. Mowing and boat dock permits allow property owners to mow government property below their lots and place private boat docks within walking distance of their property.
Eufaula Lake has long been recognized for its outstanding fishery. Crappie, sand bass, catfish and black bass in the lake reach record size. Below the dam, striped bass reaching over 40 pounds have been caught in the tailwaters. This fishery is popular year-round with catfish, sand bass and crappie being the most popular species. Visitors to Eufaula Lake should plan to take advantage of the opportunity to sight see in the historic town of Eufaula, where many antique shops and unique restaurants offer something for everyone.
