Skiatook Lake is located in Osage County, Oklahoma, 4 miles west of the town of Skiatook, 11 miles east of Hominy, Oklahoma and about 18 miles from Tulsa. The Skiatook Dam is located 14 miles upstream of the confluence of Hominy and Bird Creeks. Gentle rolling hills of Blackjack and Post Oak interspersed with Tallgrass prairie surround the lake.

Skiatook Dam and Lake were authorized for construction by the Flood Control Act approved October 23, 1962 (87th Congress). It is one of five projects in the Bird Creek Basin plan recommended to meet the comprehensive water resources needs of the area. The damsite is located on Hominy Creek about 5 miles west of Skiatook in Osage County, Oklahoma. It is 14.3 miles above the junction of Hominy Creek and Bird Creek.The project serves the purposes of flood control, water quality, water supply, recreation, and fish and wildlife management. The total cost of the project was approximately $120 million. Land acquisition started in 1973. Construction began in May 1977 and was completed in 1984. Today, Skiatook, Sand Springs, Tulsa and Sapulpa use Skiatook Lake as a municipal water supply.
