About Gentry Creek

Recreation

Eufaula Lake has long been recognized for its outstanding fishing. 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.

Boating and kayaking are popular activities in the area. A boat ramp is provided at the campground for easy access to the water.

A variety of hiking trails wind throughout the hills and along the shoreline, offering additional activities for campers.

Gentry Creek Campground offers 26 campsites spread out along the lake shore. A boat ramp helps visitors enjoy the lake.

Natural Features

Eufaula Lake is the largest lake located entirely in the state of Oklahoma. It is located on the Canadian River, 27 miles upstream from its confluence with the Arkansas River. The dam, completed in 1964 and dedicated by President Lyndon B. Johnson, was originally built for flood control.

With over 600 miles of shoreline and 102,000 surface acres of water, Eufaula Lake offers a variety of recreational opportunities. The shoreline ranges from vast expanses of sandy beaches to rocky bluffs, and the scenery is especially beautiful during the fall months, when visitors are treated to an array of vivid autumn colors.

Nearby Attractions

Robber's Cave State Park and two other state parks located on Eufaula Lake offer a variety of recreational experiences, including golf courses, swimming pools and hiking trails.

The historic town of Eufaula offers an array of antique shops and restaurants.

Nice and clean

We stayed on campsite 39. It was by the boat ramp. We were there at the first of April and it was beautiful. Scores of down and dead oak laying all around the campgrounds. Vault toilets were fairly clean on our side. Its pretty quiet but I’m fairly sensitive to road noise when I’m camping. And I can hear the highway for sure. But I haven’t found a place in Oklahoma where I can’t so far.

First and Last time

Very disappointed. RV barely fit, site too narrow. Gate attendants were very friendly and helpful.
