Lake Murray State Park
Lake Murray State Park is Oklahoma's first and largest state park consisting of 12,500 acres around beautiful Lake Murray. The park's diverse terrain, exceptional trails and historic sites make Lake Murray State Park a favorite destination among outdoor, water sport and ATV riding enthusiasts. Encompassing acres of forested, rolling hills in southern Oklahoma, Lake Murray State Park is a prime destination for outdoor activities.
Nine RV campgrounds with 329 RV sites and 500 tent sites are located throughout Lake Murray State Park with full hookups, restrooms and showers. Some RV sites within the park are pull-through and six of the nine campgrounds are open 24 hours a day, with three gated (Elephant Rock, Cedar Cove and Tipps Point). If not camping, these campgrounds require a small day-use fee. Other campgrounds include Duke's Forest, ATV campground, Martin's Landing, Rock Tower, Marietta Landing and Buzzard's Roost. All offer a variety of RV sites, as well as tent sites. View a map of Lake Murray State Park campgrounds. Three seasonal group camps are also located within the park.
For a more secluded experience, book one of the park's 56 cabins. These state park cabins feature everything from cozy cottages for two up to large family-size cabins; some feature convenient kitchenettes. For a small fee, pets are allowed in select cabins. A number of the cabins are also historic structures built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Reserve state park cabins and lodge rooms online, or call either 800-257-0322 or 580-223-6600.
Another option within the park is Lake Murray Lodge. Choose rooms with one king-size with sofa sleeper, two queen-size beds all with a stunning view of the lake. The 32-room lodge also offers the Blue Heron restaurant and an inviting lobby commons area with a fireplace. Lake Murray Lodge offers a total of seven meeting areas, from the 4,168 sq. ft. Bald Eagle Ballroom to the 353 sq. ft. Board rooms. Banquet catering and audio/visual equipment are also available. An outdoor pool is also available to lodge and cabin guests. No pets are allowed in the lodge.
The Blue Heron Restaurant, located directly off the lobby within Lake Murray Lodge, offers delicious menu selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Enjoy scenic views of Lake Murray while feasting on classic sandwiches, burgers and traditional breakfast platters.
When it’s time to get outside, fishing, boating and a variety of water sports are enjoyed on the 5,728 surface acres of Lake Murray. Outdoor activities include golf, picnicking, camping, trail riding, hayrides, hiking, swimming, miniature golf and paddle boating. Sports facilities include a golf course, tennis courts, and softball and baseball fields. Lake Murray State Park also offers nearly 1,000 acres of trails for ATVs, motorcycles and dirt bikes. Within the area by state law, helmets are required for those under 18, and riding double is only permitted when the ATV is manufactured for two people. A small ATV riding fee (per passenger) does apply.
The park also has an extensive trail system for hikers and mountain bikers. New Deal, Anadarche, Buckhorn and a new system from the park office to Tucker Tower all combine for more than 30 miles of scenic trails offering a wide variety of hiking and biking experiences. These trails range from fairly simple and flat to moderately difficult with good hills and even some interactions with rock and bluff environments.
The Lake Murray State Park Golf Course is an 18-hole golf course featuring towering oak trees, tree-lined fairways, strategically placed water hazards and a breathtaking waterfall. The course is well-manicured and challenging. Golfers of all ages and abilities are welcomed. A pro shop and practice range are located on-site and individual or group lessons are available.
