Spring River Canoe Trails State Park is located at the upper end of the Spring River in northeastern Oklahoma in Ottawa County as it enters the state from Kansas and sits just upstream from its sister park, Twin Bridges State Park. Originally land belonging to the Wyandotte Indians, this area became private farm land until acquired by the Grand River Dam Authority, and then sold to the state of Oklahoma for park development in 1980. Spring River is known for some of the best fishing in Oklahoma, and includes such species as large mouth bass, spoonbill paddlefish, white bass, hybrid stripers, crappie, channel and flathead catfish, and occasionally good-sized walleye. Besides fishing, recreational activities also include boating, canoeing, picnicking, and camping. Visitors will find 22 miles of canoe trails and two separate camping areas with a total of 21 picnic tables, 2 group picnic shelters, 2 comfort stations (1 with showers), a playground, two canoe ramps, and 38 primitive campsites for tent camping.
