The reservoir was named for the U.S. Army fort, Fort Gibson, established in 1824. The Fort Gibson area played an important part in history as it was from here that the many "Trails of Tears" ended. And in 1834, Colonel Henry Dodge and his regiment of dragoons established friendly relations with the Five Civilized Tribes. Each of the five tribes - Choctaws, Cherokees, Creeks, Seminoles and Chickasaws - lost about one-fourth of its population on the westward march due to cholera, smallpox and measles epidemics. Today, the Five Civilized Tribes own and operate a museum, Five Civilized Tribes Museum, in the original Union Indian Agency building in Muscogee built in 1875.

Sequoyah Bay State Park strives to honor the cultures of the Five Civilized Tribes, as well as the memory of those who traveled the many "Trails of Tears." The Park offers a unique opportunity to learn about the long-past war chiefs and great speakers of the Five Civilized Tribes who led their people through many ordeals and hardships. Each of the five campgrounds are named for one of these chiefs or speakers and a monument is erected at the entrances with each name and a brief description.
