River Summary: The Caney River is a 180-mile long river in northeastern Oklahoma. It was named by the Osage Nation after the caney grass that grows along its banks. The river originates in the Flint Hills of Kansas and flows through Bartlesville, Skiatook, and Tulsa before joining the Verdigris River. The Caney River is a tributary of the Arkansas River and provides water to several reservoirs, including Kaw Lake, Sooner Lake, and Oologah Lake. These reservoirs are used for flood control, drinking water supply, and recreation. The river and its tributaries also support agriculture, with crops such as soybeans, wheat, and corn grown on its floodplain. The Caney River has a rich history, with Native American tribes and early settlers using the river for transportation and trade. Today, it remains an important resource for the region's economy and recreation.
