Checotah, OK 74426

This Memorial Day, gather up the whole crew and head to Lake Eufaula State Park for a myriad of fun, family-friendly activities peppered throughout the weekend.

From crafts to hikes and even a movie, kick off summer with four days jam-packed with educational fun at Lake Eufaula.

Here’s a breakdown of each day’s activities:

Saturday, May 28th

10am – Minnow Races – The hardest part is getting a saddle on them.
