Boat Launch Permits

Vessels with any kind of motor attached or on board require a permit to operate on Lake of the Arbuckles.

Visitors with a Senior Pass or Access Pass may present these passes for 50% off their day-use or annual permit.

How to Purchase a Day Boat Launch Permit

A one day permit is $4.00. A two day permit is $8.00. Day permits can be purchased at the fee machines at The Point, Buckhorn, and Guy Sandy boat launch ramps. For use of the Eagle Bay ramp, purchase your permit at any of the other boat launch areas. Keep your daily receipt on your person to present if asked by Fee Rangers, Law Enforcement Rangers, or an Oklahoma Game Warden.

All transactions are by credit or debit card only.

Annual boat launch permit decals come in a set of three. One of the decals is for the drivers side of the boat trailer tongue. The other two are for each side of the boat on the bow.
There are three stickers that make up the annual boat launch permit. Two are for the boat and one is for the trailer.
