Abstract : Eufaula Dam is located in eastern Oklahoma at river mile 27 on the Canadian River approximately 19 km (12 mi) east of Eufaula and 50 km (31 mi) south of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Eufaula Lake, the largest body of water in Oklahoma, extends into McIntosh, Haskell, Pittsburg and Okmulgee countries, Oklahoma. Construction of the dam was initiated in December, 1956, and final closure was made for flood control in February, 1964. At full power pool, Eufaula Lake inundates 41,360 ha (102,200 ac) extending upstream from the dam on the Candian River and three tributary streams (North Canadian River, Deep Fork River and Gaines Creek). A total of 74,167 ha (183,264 ac) were acquired for the project. Project lands acquired above the power pool total some 20,715 ha (51,187 ac) extending in a narrow band around the highly convoluted 965 km (600 mi) lake shoreline. Much of the vicinity of the lake is devoted to agriculture, particularly livestock production, or has been subdivided for home sites for year-round or seasonal occupancy.
