Abstract: Tenkiller Ferry Lake is a feature of the project for comprehensive development of the Arkansas River and tributaries for flood risk management, hydroelectric power, water supply, natural resource management, and recreation. Additionally, hydroelectric generation provides regulated flows from Tenkiller Ferry Reservoir into the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System (MKARNS). This report proposes land classifications 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.
