Enjoy over ten miles of hiking and biking trails. You can expect a variety of terrain and wildlife habitats along the many off-shoots to the two main trails, all ripe for exploring.
One of Lake Murray State Park's primary trails, this is a 6.3mi. round trip hike. It is child and dog-friendly (as long as they are leashed), and fairly easy in terms of terrain. North Anadarche crosses the lake via footbridges, and you may spot deer or other local wildlife.
The second of the main trails, this one comes in at 3.4mi. A great basic trail that follows the lake, Buckthorn is family-friendly. Nature spotting and bird watching are both possible along the route.
Leave the Lake Murray State Park cabins behind and head out on this 2.4mi trail, out and back, in a tranquil forest setting. This one is a great route for hikers and trail runners alike.
Visiting Lake Murray State Park is a must-do on a trip to Oklahoma. Located on an aptly named scenic state highway in Ardmore, this state park is not just a beautiful place to relax with friends, there's plenty to do as a family.
Open year round, Tucker Tower sits on a cliff, providing unrivaled views of Lake Murray and the surrounding area. Climb to the top level for the view, then visit the historical museum on the ground level.
Located near the Martins Landing Campground, this beautiful beach is equipped with picnic areas, a playground, and plenty of shade.
Lake Murray Water Sports, near the park's lodge and cabins, offers fun for all ages, whether you want to book a sunset cruise or rent a paddle boat. Children will love the water slide and trampoline.
Compete with your family to see who can master the 18 hole mini golf course, just don't hit the ball too hard, as it may end up in the lake. Find the mini golf by Lake Murray Water Sports and Lake Murray Lodge, one of the Lake Murray State Park hotels on-site.
Offering information on everything from the lake's history to local wildlife, this is where to learn more about the area.
