GREENLEAF STATE PARK
Located in eastern Oklahoma, this state park includes part of 930-acre Greenleaf Lake, an artificial lake which was formed by damming up Greenleaf Creek.
Activities: A 20-mile hiking and backpacking trail encircles the lake, passing through the park as well as other public lands. Visitors should stay on the trail. It’s closed during deer hunting season and also for occasional military operations. Fishing is permitted alongside the lake.
Camping Regulations: Camping is restricted to lands between the trail and the lakeshore, on the east side of the lake. Sites should be at least 100 feet from the lake and all water sources.
Visitors must sign in at a trail register. Campfires are prohibited, so a stove is necessary if one wishes to cook. It’s wise to call in advance to verify that the trail is open.
