Recreation

The Corps of Engineers operates more recreation areas than any other federal or state agency outside of the Department of the Interior (and they run the national park system). Not bad for an organization in the Department of the Army!

In the Tulsa District, we operate some 238 parks with 5,987 campsites, 51 improved swimming beaches, and 223 boat ramps. There are also concession areas and 176 parks operated by other government or private agencies at our lakes.

Tulsa District’s 38 projects are located throughout Oklahoma, into southern Kansas and northern Texas. A great diversity of environments in the region provides varying backgrounds for outdoor fun. Recreational experiences such as hiking, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, swimming, picnicking, educational programs, wildlife viewing, equestrian riding and even scuba diving await you at one of our lakes.

Some universally accessible facilities such as restrooms, campsites, and trails are available.

National Public Lands Day = Fee-Free Day
On September 27, 2014 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers participated in a Fee-Free Day in partnership with our sister federal land management agencies.  All day use fees for visitors to Corps-managed recreation areas were waived on this day.  The waiver covered boat launch ramp and swim beach fees only.  The waiver did not apply to camping and camping related-services, or fees for specialized facilities such as group picnic shelters.  Other agencies that manage recreation areas located on Corps lands were encouraged, but not required, to comply with this waiver of day use fees in the areas that they manage.  If you missed out on enjoying this Fee-Free Day watch for next years announcement.

Locking Restrictions concerning recreational vessels- Recreational lockage is not available Monday through Thursday between the hours of 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Locks 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18.  Visit the Navigation Notices page for more information.
