Fort Gibson Lake Area
Fort Gibson Lake lies in the hills of eastern Oklahoma. In the spring, timbered hills provide the sightseer with the beauty of redbud, sand plum, and dogwood blossoms. In the fall, the colorful foliage of hickory, oak, red maple, blackgum and woodbine sets the hills aglow. With 19,900 surface acres and 225 miles of shoreline, the lake beckons fishermen, boaters and all who just enjoy the water. The nearby communities of Wagoner and Fort Gibson and the Western Hills Guest Ranch at Sequoyah State Park offer lodging, dining and activities to make your visit complete.
