Take The Family To Lake Murray State Park

The sun is out, skies are clear, and there is no reason you should stay cooped up in your house all day! Because after all, why would you stay inside when you could be outside enjoying some fresh air and living your best life under the sun?

Even if you’re not a big outdoorsy person, there’s something for everyone at Lake Murray State Park in Ardmore, Oklahoma. Fishing, boating, hiking, golfing, and picnicking are just a FEW of the awesome adventures you and your friends or family could be having today. What are you waiting for, gather a squad and click here to have the best day ever.

What You Can Do

When we say there are endless possibilities at Murray State, we mean it. Lake Murray is 5,728 surface acres, so that’s plenty of room to hop on a boat, test out the waters for fishing, or participate in tons of water sports! Also, for the more adventurous souls, there are also nearly 1,000 acres of trails for ATVs, motorcycles and dirt bikes, so you can have a blast in the water AND out.

If you’re more of a land-dweller, or just want to soak up your sun on foot, there are 30 miles of trails perfect for hiking. As far as sports go, there is also an 18-hole State Park Golf Course and sports facilities that have tennis courts, and softball and baseball fields.

Where To Stay

If you’re not from around here, or just want to make the getaway official by staying away, there are plenty of ways to stay at the park. There are nine RV campgrounds, 500 tent sites, 56 cabins, and Lake Murray Lodge to choose from. The historic cabins, which were built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, are cozy and quaint ⁠— the perfect size for you and your significant other, or even the whole family!
