The City of Sallisaw assumed control of the former Brushy Lake State Park in August 2011 after the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department announced their plan to close the park along with six other state parks due to budget cuts. The 90-acre park was already owned by the city but the State of Oklahoma had been leasing it.
The trails add to an already popular vacation spot. According to the City of Sallisaw, the facilities at the park include eight day-use picnic areas with tables and grills, group shelters with electricity, 23 concrete camping sites including RV sites, playgrounds and a lighted boat ramp, as well as boat and fishing docks. Electric service, water service and comfort stations with showers are available.
