Oklahoma Agritourism---Come See an Island Filled With Goats at Lake Tenkiller!Thu, 26 Aug 2021 09:29:41 CDT
Oklahoma Agritourism encourages Oklahomans to take a trip to Lake Tenkiller and see an Island filled with Goats!
Ashley writes for Oklahoma about a place where you can experience fishing, cliffs, and goats all at Lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma.
Nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, Lake Tenkiller State Park is a gem in the woodlands of Oklahoma. The lake is a clear water paradise that is surrounded by beautiful thick foliage, rugged cliffs, rolling hills, and goats.
You can find the goats on Pettit Bay, also known as "Goat Island" on the northwestern end of the lake in the town of Pettit.
Many locals have named the goats, so you can call them out by name: Yin-yang, Onyx & Lone Ranger (L-R) are these cuties names.
Sightings are even often seen from across the bay at Six Shooter Resorts.
They usually stay on the south side of the island or on the rocks, so if you don't see them right away, keep paddling around. They'll often come to the shores to greet you when you approach the shores.
Locals deliver food to the island to help feed them. They really love carrots but it's very important if you see any trash on the island to pick it up, as it can harm them if ingested.
