Grand Lake is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Oklahoma. Known officially as the Grand Lake o' the Cherokees, it is situated in northeast Oklahoma at the foothills of the Ozark Mountain Range. With its rich natural history as well as the technological marvel that is the Pensacola Dam, Grand Lake is quite the place to visit with something to offer every member of the family.
Lodging near Grand Lake includes cabins, lodges, motels, ranches and campgrounds. For the most immersive lake experience, Monkey Island has no parallel; offering rental cabins and a Good Sam Club member RV resort for travelers. Vacationers to Grand Lake get the chance to break-free from their daily paced life and enjoy the charming lakeside setting from wooden summer cabins sure to evoke nostalgia.
While most Grand Lake accommodations are in surrounding towns, the area has an overall native aura, inspiring a return to the wild through fishing, camping, stargazing, and even taking part in outdoor skills competitions or festivals. Grand Lake’s scenery offers a variety of year-round recreation to its tourists ranging from biking, hiking, fishing, boating and sailing, to bird watching.
The self-catering options permit you to choose between the available lodging options based on the size of your family or group. For smaller groups, book a room or pitch a tent. For larger groups, rental cabins are an adventure home away from home! Hitting the road in an RV? Get a plot at Oklahoma’s finest RV park on Monkey Island.
