Grand Lake is one of the best locations for outdoor recreation in Northeast Oklahoma. The Neosho River provides additional recreation opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Whether you are a bird watching buff, bass fisher, or a boating enthusiast, Grand Lake has something everyone can enjoy.
Here at Grand Lake Casino, we take pride in our community and in Grand Lake as well. We want every visitor who comes to our casino to enjoy the recreation opportunities available to them. Before you head out to Grand Lake, let us fill you in on some of our favorite activities on Grand Lake.
Boating on Grand Lake
As one of the most popular lakes in Oklahoma, Grand Lake has become a popular destination for bass fishers in recent years. But the lake has long been a popular boating destination for both visitors and locals. With nearly 60,000 surface acres, Grand Lake is large enough for many boaters to enjoy the water without it getting too crowded. Additionally, Grand Lake has a number of marinas for you to dock your boat or set out into the open water. If you didn’t bring a boat with you, you can rent one or rent a jet ski for even more fun. Be sure to check the weather, though, as no one enjoys boating on Grand Lake during a storm.
Many of the marinas along Grand lake are equipped with a restaurant so you can grab a bite to eat before or after your boating trip. You can also camp in the area, so you can enjoy Grand Lake as much as you can during your trip to Grove, OK.
Additional Recreational Activities
Of course, we understand that boating may not be for everyone. Luckily there are plenty of other recreational activities on Grand Lake for you to take part in. As mentioned above, there is no shortage of camping options available in the Grand Lake area and you can always take a hike along the shoreline of the lake.
Birding is also a popular activity in Grove. With Lendonwood Gardens located nearby, there is always the opportunity to catch a glimpse of some of the wonderful waterfowl the area has to offer.
Don’t forget to bring your fishing gear, either, as Grand Lake has a thriving bass fishing scene. In fact, bass fishing is so popular on Grand Lake that Grove spent $3.7 million on a park project to draw fishing competitions to the area. It worked, as the Bassmasters Classic was held at Grand Lake in 2013 and again in 2016.
