Lakes and Boating
Set sail for a refreshing getaway at one of Oklahoma's lakes. With more miles of shoreline than the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts combined, Oklahoma is a lake lover's paradise with plenty of uncrowded waters. The state is home to more than 200 lakes and offers over a million surface acres that are perfect for boating, swimming, fishing and all kinds of water recreation.
Whether you prefer a sailboat on Lake Hefner, one of the best sailing lakes in America, or a fishing boat on trophy bass lakes like McGee Creek Reservoir, Oklahoma has a lake experience tailor made for you. Charter a yacht or bring your own boat of any size to Grand Lake and enjoy the open water and upscale lakeside communities. Rent a jet ski and skim across the surface of Lake Murray, or bring your scuba gear and enjoy the Lake Tenkiller dive park. Fish, swim and go boating by day, then listen to the lake lap against the shore at night at one of Oklahoma's many lakes.
