This is just a beautiful treasure in Oklahoma. We live near Lake Ouachita in Arkansas and this if the only lake in Northeast Oklahoma that compares to it's beauty. Hope to return in the future.

We are here in the "off" season. All people we have met are so friendly and helpful. Visited many antique shops today. What a joy to see the greeting of the local people. Wife and I know this is a place for water fun but it is much too cold to enjoy this part. We will most likely return in... More

We visited in October on an extended weekend getaway. Although it was too cold to enjoy activities on / in the water, we thoroughly enjoyed the scenery & found the area offered so much to see!

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.
