Operated by Oklahoma State Parks. Impounded in 1939 as a water supply for Camp Gruber, Greenleaf's primary purpose now is classified as recreation. Located on the Western edge of the Ozarks, Greenleaf is surrounded by hills covered with oak/hickory forest and provides a secluded setting. The only lake access is through Greenleaf State Park, an award-winning state park with camping and other recreational opportunities. The dam is a spillway, so water levels are stable, which has allowed aquatic vegetation to become established. Fishing is the most popular activity on the lake.
Greenleaf Lake (Google Map) is located 10 miles north of US 64 on SH 10.
Oklahoma State Parks manages campgrounds with full RV hookups, marina, fishing docks and a boat ramp.

Channel catfish have been stocked in the lake, most recently in 2021. In 2017, retired Florida bass brooders were stocked in hopes to introduce Florida bass genes to increase trophy bass potential.
