At the confluence of the Arkansas, Verdigris and Grand Rivers is an area historically known as 'The Three Forks' since the 1700s.

Three Forks Harbor is immediately south of the east end of the U.S. Highway 62 bridge in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We stopped by on our way back from paddling in Tahlequah. It offers a marina, boat launch and large mobile boat lifter. This makes it a popular fueling and jump-off spot for northeastern Oklahoma recreational boaters to access the rest of the Mississippi River system and the inland water way.

Three Forks Harbor's marina has two floating docks with 58 covered slips accommodating vessels ranging from day cruisers to bass boats and houseboats. A 110-ton travel lift is available to move larger boats in and out of the water. The marina provides a 24-hour floating ships store and fuel dock with three pumps.
