Operator: Oklahoma State Parks
Directions: Hwy 10 N. out of Gore approx. 8.5 miles, Greenleaf entrance on the East side of the road
Area Description/Facilities: Impounded in 1939 as a water supply for Camp Gruber, Greenleaf's primary purpose now is classified as recreation. Located on the Western edge of the Ozarks, Greenleaf is surrounded by hills covered with oak/hickory forest and provides a secluded setting. The only lake access is through Greenleaf State Park, an award-winning state park with camping and other recreational opportunities. The dam is a spillway, so water levels are stable, which has allowed aquatic vegetation to become established. Fishing is the most popular activity on the lake.
Physical Description: 920 surface acres, 14 miles of shoreline, Avg depth 16.4 ft.
Species of Interest: Primary species of interest are Largemouth Bass, Channel Catfish, and White and Black Crappie. Other species available include White Bass, Bluegill Sunfish, Redear Sunfish, and Green Sunfish.
Management Practices: Channel Catfish have been stocked in the lake, most recently in 2010. In 2017, retired Florida Bass brooders were stocked in hopes to introduce Florida Bass genes to help generate trophy bass.
