About Grand Lake

Grand Lake

Grand Lake O' The Cherokees was created in 1940 with GRDA's completion of Pensacola Dam. It is one of the premiere lakes in the Midwest and the crown jewel of a chain of lakes in the northeastern Oklahoma region.

The Dam

Pensacola Dam

Pensacola Dam was the first hydroelectric facility in the state. GRDA built the dam between December 30, 1938, and March 21, 1940, when depression-era labor was abundant. It is located between the communities of Langley and Disney, spanning over a mile across the Grand River Valley and holding back the 43,500 acres of water that form Grand Lake O' the Cherokees. In an effort to increase reliability while holding down maintenance costs at Pensacola Dam, the Grand River Dam Authority began a major upgrade project in the fall of 1997. Increased production capability following the upgrade will ensure that they will play a vital role in the GRDA generation system for the next 50 years and beyond. Following the upgrade, the units should combine to produce an additional 43,000 MWhrs annually.

The Lake

Grand Lake

Grand Lake O' the Cherokees has 1,300 miles of shoreline meandering through the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, everything from bustling lakeside communities to quiet secluded coves and lakeside resorts can be found along its shore. Normal surface elevation is 742 feet above sea level.

Recreation

Its 46,500 surface acres of water are ideal for boating, skiing, fishing, swimming and sailing. In fact, the lake, which lies in a southwest to northeast direction, is popular with sailboat enthusiasts wishing to take advantage of the prevailing wind. Consistently ranked among the top lakes for bass fishing in the region. Grand and GRDA's Lake Hudson are the only two major lakes in the state where residents can own lakefront property on the water's edge. It is also a haven for migratory waterfowl and other wildlife.
