OverviewSnake Creek Park has one of the most popular campgrounds on Tenkiller Ferry Lake. With modern facilities, convenient access to boating, and plenty of opportunities to view wildlife, it's no wonder campers come here year after year.
Tenkiller Ferry Lake is often referred to as "Oklahoma's clear water paradise." The 12,500 acre lake is sourced by the Illinois River and the Baron Fork, which are both designated as Oklahoma Scenic Rivers. It is nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in the northeastern part of the state.
Boating, fishing, water skiing, hiking, and swimming are some of the activities enjoyed by visitors. Prevailing winds and secluded coves create an ideal environment for sailing. Scuba divers enjoy the lake's clear waters and high visibility.
All campsites are equipped with electric hookups, and the group shelters have electricity, too. The park has flush toilets, hot showers, water hydrants, a swim beach, playground, dump station and boat ramps. A marina with concessions is adjacent to the campground. Of the ten marinas with concessions located on the lake, most offer boat and jet-ski rentals, and several have floating restaurants.
Visit the Tenkiller State Park for its nature center and scuba diving park, the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, or the historic city of Tahlequah - the capital of the Cherokee Nation. The scenic upper Illinois River is great for canoeing and rafting, and Gore offers prime trout fishing.
