Welcome to Kaw Lake

Kaw Lake is Nature’s Playground. 

Camping or picnicking…fishing or skiing….hunting or hiking….if it’s outdoors you can enjoy it at Kaw Lake in north-central Oklahoma.

A Corps of Engineers lake, Kaw Lake has 17,000 acres of water and 168 miles of shoreline with seven Corps campgrounds, 268 individual campsites and four group sites with bathrooms, picnic pavilions, showers, and dump stations.  You can make reservations on-line at www.recreation.gov.

Kaw Lake Campsites Closed

After record lake levels and releases from Kaw Dam, Kaw Lake remains over 15 feet above normal.  Only Sandy Park and Osage Cove Group Area are open and available for camping. This information is due to change without notice.  As of 12 July, the Osage Cove high water boat ramp is open for public use.  Some areas around the lake are out of the water but damage to infrastructure is prohibiting opening of those areas.  Public safety is of the utmost concern.  If you choose to boat on Kaw Lake, please exercise extreme caution.  Significant releases from Kaw Dam will make the area below the dam in the Arkansas River extremely dangerous. To be sure, check with the Kaw Lake Project Office for current information at 580-762-5611
