Indian Nations Rally
The Oklahoma Rally Returns to Fall!
Indian Nations Rally
September 26-28, 2014
Greenleaf State Park • map
Last year we held an Oklahoma BMW motorcycle rally for the first time in 19 years! More than 100 motorcycles rolled up in 2013 and everyone was impressed with the rally site, scenic location and winding roads.
The date for 2014 has moved to autumn, a great time of year to tour the countryside of Eastern Oklahoma. We will return to Greenleaf State Park and a campground overlooking the Arkansas River that offers electricity and water at most campsites. We will also be able to accommodate a limited number of RVs. Registration includes camping fee, five door prize tickets, two evening meals and a pancake breakfast. Special events for this year include a People’s Choice motorcycle show, movie night and a bocce ball tournament.
Register early and save $10 plus you’ll reserve your event shirt!

There’s plenty of room for tent camping at our rally site- it’s called the Gobbler Ridge Campground. There are concrete RV pads where you can park your bike- or your tent! Water and electricity are available at each site and there’s a rumor we may even have Wi-Fi.
If you prefer not to camp we have options:
RVs can rent a space at the rally site for $75 for the weekend. These are very limited and must be reserved in advance along with your registration. The next closest RV option will be one of the other campgrounds in the park. Cabins are also available in the park. Once again, these are very limited and will sell out months before the rally.
Another option are nearby motels which are about 10 miles away in Gore. A bit further away are national-chain motels in Muskogee or the Fin & Feather Resort on Lake Tenkiller.
The rally site is at Greenleaf State Park which is one of the seven original Oklahoma State Parks. It is located 3 miles south of Braggs, Oklahoma. This year our rally headquarters will be located at the Gobbler Ridge Campground. This spacious campground offers plenty of areas for tent camping, onsite showers and a limited number of RV slots.
Greenleaf Lake and most of the rock buildings in the park were built in the Thirties by the WPA. The lodge at the group camp was originally built as a restaurant and called Greenleaf Lodge. During World War Two it became part of Camp Gruber and was used as the officers’ club.
The nearby state park features paddle boats, a nature center, mini golf, swimming pool, RV slots and 14 rustic cabins. Most of the cabins are WPA era, but some were constructed during World War Two with the help of German POWs being held at Camp Gruber.
Area attractions include the Ft. Gibson Historic Site, USS Batfish WWII Submarine, Cherokee Heritage Center, the Gruber Offroad Riding Area, the Castle of Muskogee, Five Civilized Tribes Museum, Cherokee National Museum, Tenkiller Lake and more.
The rally site is located…
- 54 miles from Fort Smith
- 70 miles from Tulsa
- 150 miles from Oklahoma City
- 210 miles from Little Rock
- 245 miles from Dallas
- 295 miles from Kansas City
