GRAND LAKE STATE PARK, OK

While boating around Grand Lake is a lot of fun for those who have their sea legs, those who are more comfortable keeping their feet on the solid ground might be looking for a way to spend their vacation.

Disney, Oklahoma, offers a variety of activities for you to enjoy at Grand Lake State Park. This beautiful area has a TON of things for you to explore. Some attractions are relaxing, and others are thrilling.

Let's take a look at your future vacation itinerary!


Pensacola Dam Tours

According to Grove's Chamber of Commerce, the Pensacola dam was "the first hydroelectric facility to be built in Oklahoma." A project that was started during the Great Depression, Pensacola Dam still stands today as a feat of American creation when things are difficult.

The impressive man-made structure holds back 44,000 acres of water and, at a quarter of a mile long, is the longest multi-arched dam in the world. If you want to learn about the struggles and successes that people faced during one of the rockiest periods of American history, this is a must-visit.

When is the dam open for tours?

Pensacola dam is open from Memorial Day (end of May) to Labor Day (beginning of September).
Tours run every day from 9 AM - 3:30 PM

How much does the tour cost?

Because Pensacola Dam is operated by the Oklahoma State government, tours are free for all guests! We hope that everyone will take some time to explore a bit of Oklahoma's history while they're in town.

Fishing Neosho River

If you can fish in Grand Lake itself, why would you choose to fish in a river next door to it? While yes, it's true that you'll likely find many of the same fish as you do in Grand Lake, the Neosho River is still a beautiful place to go fishing.

Many lake fishers sit in their boat, casually waiting for something to bite. But in the Neosho River, it is easier to go fly fishing—which many of our guests prefer.
