Park History

Tenkiller State Park is rich in history. The name Tenkiller dates back to the earliest Cherokee history. It was bestowed upon a Cherokee warrior who vanquished ten enemies in battle.  The lake is named for the Tenkiller family who lived near the present lake site. After a tragic journey from Georgia over the Trail of Tears, the Cherokee Indians came to this area and built a nation. Tenkiller State Park is located near the capital of the Cherokee Nation, Tahlequah.  The Tenkiller Ferry Dam is Oklahoma's second tallest at 97 feet and Lake Tenkiller offers 12,650 lake acres of crystal clear water. These blue waters offer the scuba diving enthusiast a day of discovery. Tenkiller State Park occupies 1,190 acres of land adjacent to the reservoir. 

Experience Tenkiller State Park to the limit.  There's something for everyone!
