The name Oologah, pronounced oo'-la-gawh, is a Cherokee word meaning "dark cloud." The lake is a multipurpose project for flood control, water supply, recreation, navigation, and fish and wildlife. When operated in conjunction with the Arkansas River Basin System, the project is designed to provide maximum flood protection on the Lower Verdigris and Arkansas Rivers.
Managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers, Oologah provides a great getaway for fishing, boating, picnicking, camping or just drifting over the sky blue waters. Plenty of wide stretches of water, perfect for catching the wind, make it one of the most popular lakes in the area for sailing. The forested hills around the lake provide excellent hunting opportunities. Eleven public use areas scattered around the lake offer a variety of facilities making it easy to find something that's just right for you! Corps personnel at the lake have accomplished much to make your visit pleasant, entertaining, educational, and safe.
