Arkansas River - Webbers Falls Pool

Description:

Webbers Falls Lock and Dam is located at navigation mile 368.9 about 5 miles northwest of the town of Webbers Falls, Oklahoma. The Webbers Falls area attracts many visitors during the early spring when the many flowering trees and shrubs such as redbud and dogwood are in bloom and again in the fall when the many hardwood trees are changing their colors. An observation platform and visitors facilities have been provided at Webbers Falls Lock and Dam so that visitors may watch the lockage of barges and pleasure craft. On a bluff above the powerhouse is a scenic overlook where visitors may view the lock and dam and a large area of the lake Sportspeople will find recreation opportunities at Webbers Falls Lake the year around. For the fisherman the predominate species of fish in the lake are catfish, white bass, black bass, crappie, bream, walleye, sauger, buffalo, carp and a rapidly growing population of striped bass. Many have predicted that the striped bass will reach weights in excess of forty pounds in Oklahoma waters. Opportunities are equally as good for the hunting enthusiast. Principal game species present at the project include whitetail deer, fox squirrel, gray squirrel, cottontail rabbit, swamp rabbit, raccoon, mink, opossum, bobwhite quail, mourning dove, and several species of waterfowl. There are three recreation areas on the lake that offer many opportunities for water oriented activities. The facilities at these areas include designated campsites, picnic areas, boat launching ramps, drinking water, swimming beaches, and sanitary facilities.
