The Chouteau Lock and Dam 17 project was primarily constructed for the improvement of the Arkansas River and its tributaries for commercial barge traffic; however, today it offers several recreation and resource opportunities. Afton Landing provides easy access to the navigation channel through our boat ramp. Anyone not camping in the park is required to purchase a day use pass.
All visitors utilizing the boat ramp (unless camping) must possess a valid day use pass.
If purchasing your pass on-site, no printed copy will be available. Instead, your license plate number will be used to confirm compliance.
If purchasing a pass in advance, a printed copy of your pass is recommended for your vehicle.
This pass does not guarantee parking availability. For your safety, please remember that parking outside of designated areas is discouraged and visitors who park illegally may be fined and towed.
This day use pass is valid until 11:59 PM of the date listed on the pass, and only for the date and vehicle specified for this pass.
Passes are non-transferrable, non-refundable, not replaceable if lost or stolen, and are void if altered or reproduced.
Visitors must trade a paper Annual Pass for a plastic hang tag pass issued to an individual. Please see a park ranger during your visit for details or contact the Fort Gibson Lake Office at 918-682-4314
