This lake has some of the best fishing around. Start off in the early spring working for spoonbill/paddlefish and then chase the white bass/sandbass. Then a little later in the spring go after the crappie. In the hot summer months go night fishing for catfish or white bass/ sandbass.

My family has gone to the Lake for 28 years for a yearly family reunion and stayed at several hotels. We always have loved the lake and missed it in recent years when the reunion no longer took place. The wildlife is nice, water sports are plentiful, scenery is very nice, lots of places to stay from small hotels, camping... More

There are many places here on the lake to see. Fishermen or unique gift shoppers will be thrilled. Bass Pro even has an event here because of the bass. But crappie, spoonbill, catfish and others are here. Bernice is the Crappie capital. Unique gift shops all around of course flea markets all over the place to find treasures. Rodeos and... More

We came to know Grand Lake O' the Cherokees by way of business. This is a unique area. Me being Comanche I wanted to feel either the Cherokees or the many other tribes surrounding the lake would have placed their stamp on this large body of water. That is why I gave it a 4 each tribe does there own... More

Very pretty and peaceful. We were there over the 4th of July, and the fireworks over the lake were quite a lovely sight.

Lee's Resort provided the picturesque setting for trees changing colors and pelicans transitioning to South America--taking the humming birds with them!

That's right. We got us a sailboat and moved to the lake to appease our desire to get away from everything. The Caribbean is more beautiful but our family is closer to Grand. Plus, living here, we get to share the lake with our family and friends. It feels like we live in a Disney movie with deer, fox, chipmunks,... More

This is a beautiful lake. The wildlife is amazing. We saw foxes, egrets, birds, and amazing sunsets. A truly beautiful place.

Grove has some new cute stores, locals and visitors alike need to stop in and visit. Or pick up brochures at the Grand Lake Visitors Center (clean restrooms and nice folks for info) to see what's new! Things change! Take time to enjoy what is around here...Grand Lake is more than fishing, just look.
