Eufaula, Oklahoma, the county seat of McIntosh County is located 12 miles south of Interstate 40 at the junction of US Highway 69 and Oklahoma State Highway 9.
Just one half mile east of Eufaula was the site of North Fork Town,
settled by the Creek Indians shortly after their arrival in this area
in 1836. The Texas Road and a branch of the California Road crossed at
North Fork Town, making it the center of traffic. This important tribal
community played host to the treaty made between the Confederates,
Creek, Choctaw, and Chickasaw Nations in 1861. North Fork Town is now
covered by Lake Eufaula.
Much of the colorful history of this area; Indian life, Outlaw gangs, and Civil War battles still remain for visitors to see. The Battle of Honey Springs, the largest and most important of the battles fought during the Civil War in Oklahoma, took place July 17, 1863 on a site 3 ½ miles northeast of Checotah, Oklahoma.
One of the most famous landmarks of the area has vanished beneath the waters of Lake Eufaula. Standing Rock, which stood 63 feet above the waters of the Canadian River five miles east of Eufaula, was noted as a fishing spot by early day settlers. Standing Rock was first recorded on papers of early day Spanish Explorers.
The City of Eufaula is situated around beautiful Eufaula Cove. This is the gateway to many outdoor activities such as:
