Diamond H Scout Ranch

Escape to the Cookson Hills! Your trip to the Diamond H Scout Ranch will take you through woods and fields, across creeks and deer trails, past bandit caves and peaceful waterfalls. You will fall in love with the oak-maple forest, the massive limestone outcroppings, and the hidden hollows of the 6,500-acre ranch. This wild tract is located just east of Lake Tenkiller, 167 miles east of Oklahoma City, 79 miles from Tulsa and 53 miles west of Fort Smith.

Adjoining the property is the 15,000-acre Cookson Wildlife Management Area. Terrapin Creeks flows down to Tenkiller Ferry Lake, known as the clearest lake in Oklahoma with 13,000 acres of water and 130 miles of shoreline. The scenic Illinois River offers 70 miles of floating possibilities and 8 miles of cold-water trout fishing. The Cherokee Nation is head-quartered in Tahlequah and offers several cultural attractions including the Cherokee Heritage Center.
