Abstract: Eufaula Lake is a unit of the Comprehensive Plan of Development for the Arkansas River Basin for flood risk management, hydroelectric power, navigation, water supply, natural resource management, and recreation. The project is operated for optimum flood risk management benefits on the Canadian River from the dam site to the confluence with the Arkansas River, and on the Arkansas River as far downstream as Van Buren, Arkansas, with major benefits downstream, including the lower Mississippi River. This report proposes public use development and conservation necessary to develop and conserve existing project lands to realize the optimal potential of the project. This plan incorporates conservation, enhancement, development, operation, management, and public interest use of all project lands, waters, forests, and other resources throughout the life of the project, and includes plans showing the most desirable and feasible locations and types to meet these goals. Emphasis has been placed on a balanced approach to public access, camping, shoreline use, water based recreation, and conservation. Adequate facilities and land-based requirements are proposed to insure all desired recreational opportunities are achieved and assure compliance with applicable environmental regulations, laws and policies. This plan also proposes proper utilization of natural resources and recreational facilities in regards to available funding while at the same time preserving the biological, scenic, scientific and wildlife resources, plus protecting and enhancing the primary project purposes and benefits. The plan is presented with recreational enhancement funded by the Government limited to existing public use areas rather than acquisition and development of new ones.
