Furthermore, 1,100+/- feet of the GRDA shoreline is dockable, deep-water waterfront on the north parcel that also has highway frontage on both sides of Highway 85 north of Ketchum on the south side of Duck Creek.

Why Invest in Mixed-Use Development Land at Grand Lake?

Especially relevant for any investor interested in considering this development property are the facts about Grand Lake itself. Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees is a highly desirable recreation destination for families who enjoy the outdoors: camping, fishing, boating, jet skiing, water skiing, swimming, bird watching, etc.

Grand Lake O’ The Cherokees was created in 1940 with GRDA’s completion of Pensacola Dam. It is one of the premiere lakes in the Midwest and the crown jewel of a chain of lakes in the northeastern Oklahoma region.

Its 46,500 surface acres of water are ideal for boating, skiing, fishing, swimming and sailing. In fact, the lake, which lies in a southwest to northeast direction, is popular with sailboat enthusiasts wishing to take advantage of the prevailing wind. Normal surface elevation is 742 feet above sea level.

With 1,300 miles of shoreline meandering through the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, everything from bustling lakeside communities to quiet secluded coves and lakeside resorts can be found along its shore.

Grand is consistently ranked among the top lakes for bass fishing in the region and is also a haven for migratory waterfowl and other wildlife.
