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.

Veterans Day = Fee-Free Day
The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will waive day use fees for boat launch ramps and swimming beaches at its recreation areas nationwide in observance of Veterans Day, November 11.  The waiver does not apply to camping and camping-related services, or fees for specialized facilities (group picnic shelters) and events.  Other agencies that manage recreation areas on USACE lands are encouraged, but not required, to offer the waiver in the areas they manage.

USACE began the Veterans Day fee waiver in 2006 as a way to honor the men and women who have served our nation and the armed forces.

Visitors are encouraged to contact USACE lake and river projects before visiting to ensure recreation areas are open.  The status of USACE-managed  campgrounds, boat ramps and swimming beaches and other sites is available at
