Arrowhead State ParkLake Eufaula
Arrowhead State Park’s 2,200 acres are south of Lake Eufuala State Park, located on a peninsula on Lake Eufaula. The fishing on the lake is outstanding (largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Kentucky bass, crappie, catfish, sandbass, stripers), and anglers from around the country flock to the lake for annual tournaments. Boats, from large houseboats to small canoes, enjoy the 102,000 acres of surface water.
There is a boat ramp at Area 51 Marina in the park to access the lake and all the water activities available, as well as boat slips, fuel, tackle and bait and an enclosed dock for year-round fishing. There’s a fully stocked ship shore and a restaurant and bar with outdoor sitting area and lounge.
Trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding wind through the park, and you might just come upon wildlife in its natural habitat, including deer, wild turkeys and waterfowl. Arrowhead Stables will board your horse or rent you one. Hitching posts, water and electric hookups are available for visitors. There’s a neat petting zoo for the kids.
The Arrowhead State Park Golf Course is state-of-the-art—18 holes with tees and fairways carpeted in Bermuda grass with views of the lake along the way, putting green, driving range, pro shop where you can rent a cart or clubs or grab a snack. Private or group lessons are available.
Arrowhead State Park has four areas for camping: Turkey Flats (with full RV hookups), Echo Ridge (near the marina), Lakeview Circle (with campsites on the lake), and Hitching Post (for you and your horse). There are group camps, each with a kitchen and bunkhouses for up to 144 people.
Amenities of the park include:
- 91 tent campsites
- 91 RV sites
- 20 sites with full RV hookups
- Equestrian camping
- Group camp
- Golf course
- Boat ramp
- Riding stables
Note: Turkey Flats and Echo Ridge and their comfort stations are open all year. Hitching Post comfort stations close in the winter, but the area remains open for primitive camping.
Also on site are a naturalist and park ranger, camp store, waste disposal station, archery range and volleyball court. WiFi is available in the office.
This is likely the best park on the lake. If you are looking to enjoy Lake Eufaula, you can’t go wrong at Arrowhead state park.
