They need to put more about vehicles and not about every thing else


From Julie Moles on 06/18/14

This is an absolutely amazing lake. We drove in from Oklahoma City and thought it was worth every mile. When I first crossed the dam I was so amazed that I didn't want to take my eyes off the water. The water is clean and clear and the people that work in and around the state park are so polite. This is my favorite place so far.
