Claremore Lake

Claremore Lake features 500 surface acres for boating and great bass fishing (no swimming allowed). There are 2 boat ramps, courtesy dock and 3 fishing piers, 1 for senior citizens and disabled children, 2 for general public use. Enhancing the lake is a 60 acre park with scenic shaded picnic areas, 3 picnic shelters and 2 sand volleyball courts. Boating and fishing permits are required.

Claremore Lake was developed in 1929 with the completion of the dam. Prior to 1929, this area was farm land and large rock bluffs with Dog Creek running through it. Dog Creek travels from the north and is the main feeder creek for the Lake. Dog Creek is named for Dosage Chief Black Dog, one of the three main chiefs of the Dosage tribe when they dominated the area.

In 1938, the WPA constructed a unique two-story boat house on the lake. The first floor has oneBoat House - Claremore Lakeroom with a chimney. The lower level, where boats dock, contains a small room the Claremore police once used as a jail.
