Brushy Lake Park is a 90-acre (360,000 m2) former Oklahoma state park located in Sequoyah County, Oklahoma, near the city of Sallisaw, Oklahoma. Located in the scenic wooded Cookson Hills of eastern Oklahoma, this park offers visitors a quiet, secluded recreation destination with camping, picnic areas, fishing and boating. Facilities include eight day-use picnic areas with tables and grills, group shelters with electricity, 23 concrete camping sites including RV sites, playgrounds and a lighted boat ramp, as well as boat and fishing docks. Electric service, water service and comfort stations with showers are all available. After being proposed for closure in 2011, management and ownership of the park were transferred to the city of Sallisaw.[1][2]
