There are many reasons why we call Tenkiller State Park, "Heaven in the Hills". Located on the shore of scenic Lake Tenkiller, this park is an outdoor recreation wonderland. The magnificent limestone cliffs, crystal clear water and abundant water sports, including an underwater scuba park, make this one of Oklahoma's favorites.
