Summer is the busiest time at the lake. The area boasts of over 2 million people each year come to Lake Tenkiller.
What’s the big attraction in the fall? A slower pace, with cooler temperatures, foliage changes, along with time to relax and take a breather, just to name a few. Here’s a scene of the foliage changes outside the Cozy Turtle and Snappy Turtle cabins. The blend of color is fantastic.
