Lake of the Arbuckles

Eight different boats, some on the shore and some speeding across the water, including at least two pulling tubes with people on them.

Lake of the Arbuckles is a popular fishing destination for catfish, perch, bass, and crappie. Arbuckle Dam was built in 1966 to create the lake. The lake is located at the confluence of the Buckhorn, Guy Sandy, and Rock Creeks. Thirty-six miles of shoreline and protective coves are good for trotlines. The water is unusually clear, and trolling is popular. Facilities include campgrounds, picnic areas, public restrooms, drinking water, fishing docks, and boat ramps. Boat launch permits are required to use the boat ramps.
