About the Lakes

This highland lakes area is home to an abundance of wildlife including moose, black bear, deer, coyotes, otters, beavers and loons.  Idabel and McCulloch (also known as Hyrdaulic) Lakes are just two of about 9 main lakes, many of which are popular for fishing.

There are cottage rentals and camping in this area, however some places do require a minimum 2 night stay, especially during the peak summer months of July & August.

Be sure you have all your own supplies before arriving at Idabel or McCulloch Lake.
