About Blue Creek


Blue Creek is located on Oologah Lake in northeast Oklahoma, about 45 miles from Tulsa. The lake provides an ideal getaway for fishing, boating, picnicking and camping. Prevailing winds make Oologah one of the most popular lakes in the area for sailing.


Oologah Lake is a prime location for boating, sailing, water skiing and swimming. Several recreation areas with boat ramps and docks are scattered around the lake.

Fishing is a popular pastime. Black bass, crappie, paddlefish, channel and blue catfish, walleye and hybrid striped bass are the primary sport species found in the lake. Young anglers love the Kid's Sun, Fun and Fishing Derby Day held annually in June.

The Will Rogers Country Centennial Trail stretches 18 miles from Blue Creek Park to the Spillway. This scenic path winds around the east side of the shore and is open to hikers and horseback riders.

The forested hills of the Oologah Wildlife Management Area provide excellent hunting opportunities, with nearly 13,000 acres open to the public.


The campground offers spacious campsites with electric hookups. A group day-use picnic shelter with electric is also available and can accommodate up to 100 guests. The campground also includes a loop of equestrian sites.

Oologah Lake sits on the Verdigris River with a surface area of nearly 30,000 acres. Over 200 miles of shoreline are dominated by old-growth post oak and blackjack oak forests, which provide habitat for a variety of wildlife and birds, including deer, turkey, rabbits, quail, squirrels, ducks, geese and doves.
