They call Grand Lake the 'Rich Man's Lake' - but it has something for everyone! Restaurants, casinos, shopping and of course boating, swimming and fishing. That's why so many people choose to retire at Grove. It has everything you could need and is a short drive to Joplin and/or Tulsa. In about two weeks, the pelicans will return for their... More

Being from the area, I think Grand Lake has more to offer than any place I have ever visited, great boating, fishing, or just Chilacking. There are many great resorts and motels to choose from to stay, from the very expensive to the camping grounds. There are may lakes and other places to visit as well in the nearby.

Took the entire family (kids and grandkids) for a long weekend. Stayed at the Paradise Cove Resort. Rented a 3 bedroom 2 bath house. Was very nice. A little hard to find-off the beaten path, but had a great time. House was very nice and well kept. Rented a boat for skiing and fishing. The grandkids loved it.

Very entertaining large lake. 62 miles long, and greater than 1300 miles of shoreline. Multiple coves, beautiful homes. You can boat to your choice of restaurants.

This lake is very similar to the Ozark Lakes of Missouri because it is probably part of the same system of rivers and Lakes. If you are closer in proximity to Grand Lake then you should give it a try. There are several excellent resorts on the lake and some extremely well kept golf courses. We visited a small bar... More

The lake is a very large, but peaceful, quiet body of water. Since it is so large, you can have as little interaction with others as you like. I always enjoy the extra curricular activities offered.

A well kept 9 hole golf course. It looks easy however, you may have changed your mind after the round. Just below the dam in Langley it also provides some great scenery if your game is going South. Grand Cherokee Golf Course. It is a reasonably short yardage course.

I'm from Oklahoma. It has been about 35 years since I was in the Grand Lake area but of all the visits I had made and some being in the fall of the year, I never knew pelicans migrated through the area. I enjoyed seeing all the migratory birds in the area. We got some good shots from the Bernice... More

Grand Lake is simply gorgeous. It has 1,300 miles of shoreline so it is a very big lake. We toured the lake aboard the Cherokee Queen and it was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. While staying at Monkey Island we often had great views of the lake as we drove around the area. It is supposed to be... More
