Sycamore Bay Woods on Grand Lake

5 sites · Tents25 acres · Wyandotte, OK
The land here has had human occupation for 25000 years. I have about 22 acres situated along highway 10 on one side and grand lake on the other.. The land is situated between 2 fault lines (in what is called the "Seneca Graben". Learn more about this land: Plenty of open campsite possibility to choose from. Clearings have been made on edge of woods most of which have lake frontage in addition to the 5 sites that I have cleared so far back closer to highway. There is a dry creek that floods in the spring that cuts across the property diagonally. It has been used as a bison and mammoth trap and kill site for centuries on sycamore creek and my arrowhead collection is almost entirely from here. Historians say humans have been settled into this area for 25000 years as it was important confluence of neosho and spring rivers called grand river that met sycamore creek . Since prehistory, humans have used the dry creek beds to spook animals away from their water holes - up the fastest escape thru creek only to fall on their pikes in the pits they dug out.
