Lake Thunderbird, situated in central Oklahoma, hosts tens of thousands of visitors each year. The state has established Lake Thunderbird State Park on the shores of the lake which is framed by rolling, oak-covered hills and sandy shores with some 86 miles of shoreline. Fishing is excellent with crappie, catfish and saugeye being the most sought after species. A large public hunting area offers deer archery and shotgun waterfowl during applicable seasons. Activities include fishing, hunting, boating, sailing, sailboarding, picnic areas, jogging, walking, bicycling and many others.
