Description

Veterans Lake is located in the western portion of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area's Platt Historic District. Often overlooked and bypassed by visitors, Veterans Lake offers excellent opportunities for small boat use, fishing, hiking and picnicking.

Veterans Lake was built in 1933 and became part of Chickasaw National Recreation Area in 1983.  The 67-acre lake was named in honor of American war veterans. The lake offers three miles of shoreline, along with a boat ramp, boat dock and fishing dock. The lake also features picnic areas, grills, restrooms and a group shelter. The state record black bass hybrid was caught here in March of 2006, weighing eight pounds, five ounces. No-wake boating only.
