Lakes in Oklahoma

Thanks to its 200+ ponds and lakes, Oklahoma is more than okay with water lovers - especially those who love to fish. The state has more than 40 species of fish, including alligator gar, bass, catfish, crappie, striper and walleye.

Premium fishing holes in Oklahoma include McGee Creek Reservoir, which is well known for its trophy-sized bass, and Eufaula Lake , the state's largest natural lake, which is renowned for its yearly fishing tournaments and luxurious amenities, including heated enclosed docks. The facilities at Lake Texoma, which are currently undergoing renovation, make it another excellent destination for fishing enthusiasts and boaters. Lake Hefner and Grand Lake are also fine waters for boating, including canoeing, kayaking, sail boating and yachting. For those who enjoy jet skiing, there's Lake Murray; for scuba divers, there's Lake Tenkiller, which has its own dive park.
