Eufaula Lake is a reservoir in Oklahoma. It is located on the Canadian River, 27 mi (43 km) upstream from its confluence with the Arkansas River and near the town of Eufaula. It is the largest lake in the state of Oklahoma.
Standing Rock is now covered by the waters of Lake Eufaula. The historic landmark stood in the middle of the Canadian river about two miles below the junction of the North and South Canadians. When the lake is at its top level, 585 feet, the top of the huge upright rock is approximately 25 feet below the surface.

Construction of the 975 metres long dam wall began in 1956 and was completed in 1964. The dam holds back a lake area of over 412 square kilometres. A hydroelectric powerstation provides power from the lake waters. The lake and surrounds are popular boating, fishing and hunting destinations.
