Lake Thunderbird State Park reviews
Conveniently located just east of Norman, this is a beautiful day-drive to hang out on hiking trails and around the lake. Wish there were some "destination" restaurants here! more »
This is my go too lake!!! They have several different camping areas. I love the little axe side it's definitely more family friendly with awesome tent sites. Clear Bay is also a great camp area with the marina close by. Clear Bay is always a great place for a day trip if you don't want to pay for just going to the lake. The Alameda side tho that is where the day use and fish folk go!!!
The dock area we go to is pretty nice. The dock is easily accessible and not usually over crowded. Right next to the boat ramp area there is a swim area that is really nice. No to rocks or debris in the water at all. The only reason I give it a 4 star is because the water turns your clothes a nasty brown. My family calls this lake "dirty bird" 😁. Otherwise its close and is a good size lake.
