Hugo Lake is manmade lake located 7 miles east of Hugo, in Choctaw County, Oklahoma, USA. It is formed by Hugo Lake Dam on the Kiamichi River 18 miles upstream from the Red River. The dam is visible from U.S. Route 70, which crosses its spillway just west of Sawyer. Lake Hugo features approximately 110 miles of shoreline and covers over 13,250 acres, or 20 square miles. Its normal pool elevation is 404.5 feet above sea level and its normal storage capacity is 157,600 acre feet. At flood stage its elevation is at 437.5 feet above sea level and it is capable of storing 966,700 acre feet of flood waters. The lake's primary functions are to provide flood control, water storage, and recreational opportunities.
The nearest major cities to Lake Hugo are Fort Smith, Arkansas, Dallas, Texas and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
The south 8,000 acres of the lake nearest to the dam are clear of obstructions and provide recreational opportunities for watersports such as boating and water skiing. The state park provides cabins, hiking trails, and a 56-slip marina.
The north end of the lake is not cleared and contains dead tree stumps in the water. These stumps provide cover for the fish and ideal conditions for anglers. Hugo Lake features excellent crappie fishing and populations of bass and catfish.
In addition fishing there is also hunting and animal trapping at Hugo Lake. The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation administers 18,000 acres at the lake, and the US Army Corps of Engineers manage 8,000. These areas are home to white tail deer, waterfowl, mink, fox, and beaver.
