Overview

Overview

Dam Site Campground is situated below Fort Gibson Dam on the west bank of the Grand River in northeastern Oklahoma. The lake is named for historic Fort Gibson, which played a prominent part in the early military history of the state.

Visitors love the campground for its excellent river access. The lake provides camping, picnicking, fishing and swimming opportunities.

Natural Features:

Fort Gibson Lake sits nearly 8 miles from the confluence of the Grand and Arkansas Rivers. An oak-hickory woodland covers the rolling hills of the region.

A wide variety of waterfowl migrates through the area annually, providing plenty of opportunities for bird watchers.

Recreation:

The nearly 20,000-acre lake offers great boating and swimming opportunities.

Anglers enjoy fishing for black bass, white bass, crappie and several varieties of catfish and panfish.

The lake's 225 miles of shoreline are home to thousands of acres of public hunting lands, where white-tailed deer, bobwhite quail, mourning dove, duck, geese, cottontail rabbit and squirrel roam.

Facilities:

This year-round campground offers 48 family sites and two group day-use picnic shelters, all with electric hookups. Amenities include flush toilets, showers, a dump station and boat ramp.

Nearby Attractions:

Historic Fort Gibson, established in 1824, served as an important military post on the western frontier for close to 70 years. Now a National Historical Landmark, the site is open to the public year round.

Volunteers reenact the lifestyle of the late 1800s during various events held throughout the year. A reconstructed log stockade, and original barracks, hospital, bakehouse and other structures still stand today.
