Boating

Getting on the water at Ft. Gibson Lake

Boating on beautiful Ft. Gibson Lake is one of the great pleasures in life. Take a picnic and some towels from your cabin and enjoy the cool water and sunshine!

Cypress Cove Marina & Cabins makes it easy to have a memorable day on the lake. From our wide, well maintained boat launch to our 75 covered boat slips we have YOU covered.

Coming for the day or staying in the cabins, towing your own boat? We have 10 courtesy boat slips, and 2 gas-on-the-lake boat slips for your convenience.

Two public boat launches keep your waiting time to launch a minimum. Our main launch at the Marina allows you to launch regardless of the level of the lake.

The Giggle Fish Grill typically stocks live bait, rods, reels, tackle and boat maintenance items. Before making that hour-long trip to Walmart, check with us first, we probably have it or know exactly where to get it!

Rent our 22 foot Pontoon Boat by the hour or the day! Pontoon boating on Fort Gibson Lake is an excellent way to enjoy the lake. If you just want to cruise the lake, check out the dam or do some fishing, our pontoon boat is a perfect fit.

Boating Laws

Boating laws in Oklahoma are very simple: If you are 12, 13, 14 or 15 years of age and operate a boat powered by a motor more than 10 horsepower, a sailboat 16 feet or greater in length or a personal watercraft (PWC), you are required to successfully complete a boating safety education class.

There are several online sources where you can take the Boater Education class. DMV.com is the definitive source for approved course and classes. The up beat id that once you pass the exam you can print out your tempoary card immediately.
