Oologah Lake

Filled with a rich history and surrounded by horse country, Oologah Lake offers what I consider to be the best of the natural pleasures of life. On the east side of the lake, the Will Rogers Country Centennial Trail winds around the shore from the Spillway to Blue Creek Park totalling 18 miles. This journey can be enjoyed by hiking or horse back riding.

The name Oologah, pronounced oo'-la-gawh, is a Cherokee word meaning "dark cloud." I can't help but think there was a tornado brewing the day Oologah was named.

America's most famous Cherokee Cowboy, Will Rogers was born at, The Dog Iron Ranch, now inundated by Oologah Lake. His home was relocated to a hill overlooking the lake just northeast of the town of Oologah. The ranch predates the town, which grew up when the railroad came through around 1890.
