Okmulgee is home to two beautiful park areas: the Okmulgee & Dripping Springs Lake & Recreation Area.

The recreation area is located along two beautiful lakes. The 668 acre Okmulgee Lake was built in 1927 and the 1,150 acre Dripping Springs Lake was built in 1979 and designated as Oklahoma's first "Trophy Bass Lake." The lake has an abundant stand of timber still in the water, which makes an ideal habitat for trophy bass.

Within the Okmulgee Area, there are three campgrounds offering a total of 47 semi-modern RV sites, one full hookup site and 103 primitive tent sites. Restrooms, showers, lighted boat ramps, pavilions, a playground and an American Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible fishing dock are available. There is also a 3 1/2 mile hiking trail, part of which is ADA accessible, which attracts nature lovers to the park.

The Okmulgee Area also boasts several 1930's native sandstone structures built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC).

At the Dripping Springs Area, visitors will find two campgrounds with a total of 76 semi-modern RV sites and 69 primitive tent sites. ADA asccessible restrooms and showers, a lighted boat ramp, playground and pavilions are available. Visitors to Dripping Springs Lake can enjoy swimming and fishing; no water sports are allowed.
