Diamondhead Resort is Northeast Oklahoma's place for fun in the sun. If you want your friends and family to have the best canoe, kayak, or raft trip possible, bring them to Diamondhead Resort. We are open daily from Memorial Day through Labor Day. If you would like to stay before Memorial Day or after Labor Day you will need a reservation. 

We will safely transport your party to the selected launching point, and return everyone to their vehicles once they have reached their destination. 

When you get done with your float you are always welcome to stay and enjoy our clean facilities. We have picnic areas, sand volleyball pits, horseshoes, a basketball court, and a playing field for any other activities. 

If you enjoy the great outdoors, Diamondhead Resort features the best campgrounds on the Illinois River. We also have motel rooms and bunkhouse with A/C for those of you who don't like to rough.. 

We have campgrounds with 30 amp electrical outlets and bathrooms, as well as primitive grounds with added privacy. You can also setup camp right next to the soothing sounds of the Illinois River.

We managed to fit 14 people in a very small cabin because of how space efficient and packed with beds is the interior of the cabin. The cabin is next door to the main office. The main office had various snacks, sundries, and supplies for the river. The resort quite contveinently and obviously offers raft, kayak, and canoe rentals for the river. The rentals were fast, no nonsense, and no fuss, in and out. we were able to be on the river in about 10 minutes within signing the paper work. Overall it is a great place.

Stayed 2 nights in the Motel. Nice clean rooms with 2 full beds. Great prices during the week. Awesome spot for swimming and fishing on the river. Shop had everything we forgot and pet friendly as well. Will be back next year.

One of my favorite places to float out of in Tquah! We've rented Kayaks and Rafts before. The people are always nice, knowledgeable, and helpful! I really like facility, always clean and well organized! They have outdoor restrooms that are attached to the building and easily accessible. Showers and changing area located in the bathroom. Nice venue for outdoor fun, lots of parking space, and great camping grounds. One of the best out at Illinois River in Tquah and most affordable! Remember, you get what you pay for! Some places might be cheaper BUT their stuff is cheaper, like paddles, rafts and light jackets. Diamondhead will also you help you when banking at the end, they pull your raft up and load it. Other locations make you do that work!

clean bathrooms and campsite overall, however lots of yelling during the night, we reserved floats and because we got there "ten minutes late" they gave our rafts away and was going to give our money back thankfully until another staff member called another resort and they were able to get us in, Arrowhead has very nice staff members. Staff members at Diamondhead are friendly as well although lack of security. I assume it was the manager/boss who we had the mishap with. I'd personally recommend arrowhead over diamondhead but both overall good resorts.
