Robert S Kerr Reservoir In Oklahoma
Boating, camping and fishing.
Located in the east-central part of the state, at Sallisaw, Kerr Lake, officially Robert S Kerr Reservoir, provides 250 miles of shoreline for boating, fishing and outdoor activities. This is a good lake for pleasure boating and all types of fishing boats. However, be aware of the barge traffic! Keep out of their way and maintain a safe distance. Canoes and kayaks are particularly susceptible to tipping due to wakes from a barge. Kerr Lake has a marina, boat rentals, stores, restaurants and camping in the area. Regarded as one of the top striper fishing lakes in Oklahoma, Kerr Lake is an excellent place to catch a monster striped bass. In addition to stripers there are healthy populations of catfish, crappie, largemouth and spotted bass, white bass, paddlefish, sauger, bluegill and sunfish. Flathead catfish, blue catfish stripers and crappie receive the most attention of local anglers. The 44,000-acre lake is a literal fish factory making it an ideal destination for a quick fishing trip or an extended vacation. Access to the shoreline for fishing from the bank, is available at dozens of locations around the lake, including at the wildlife refuge, five park areas, campgrounds and boat launch ramps.
