Keystone Dam Park experiences renovation and invites tourists

Keystone Dam was completed on the Arkansas River in Oklahoma in 1968. It helped to form Keystone Lake located about 23 miles from Tulsa. The dam was built with the purpose of controlling floods and producing electricity. At the same time, a nice recreational area was created next to the dam.

Keystone Dam served as a huge barrier to prevent flooding of Tulsa in 2019, which was caused by extensive rains and elevated levels of the Arkansas River. The dam was renovated in 2020 to repair damage after the flood. Recently, a new asphalt road was built. Today, the level of water by the Keystone Dam is low. Photo by Tatyana Nyborg.
