  • 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.
