Lake Murray State Park, Oklahoma

 Located close to Ardmore, Lake Murray State Park is the largest, and oldest park in the Oklahoma State Park system. We really enjoyed our stay at Lake Murray, it has a lodge, restaurant, large marina, golf course, airport, chapel, and grocery store, so just about anything you need is located right inside the park.

 We stayed in the Rock Tower RV area which is a little more secluded and it was nice and quiet. Elephant Rock RV area is also popular and is closer to the action. The park is very spread out so I would recommend deciding what park activities you like to do first so you can be close to them. For instance Rock Tower area is close to the ATV area, Elephant Rock is closer to the Marina.

 Tucker Tower Nature Center is a icon for the park, it is the largest nature center in the system and was the summer home for Governor "Alfalfa" Bill Murray. I highly recommend the climb to the top to see the lake views from the roof lookout point. It has recently been remodeled.

 The Lake Murray Marina has boat rentals and we really enjoyed feeding the fish; they were swarming all over the place and gobbling up the food as fast as we could throw it.

 SCUBA Diving is also popular, the lake is spring fed and clear which make good conditions for diving.

 Our son really liked Lake Murray, they have lots of things to do for kids like mini golf, Frisbee golf, good playgrounds, and a naturalist activities list.

 We used Lake Murray as a base to see other attractions a little farther to the north like Turner Falls in Davis, Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, Gene Autry Museum and the Arbuckle Wilderness, these are all just off I-35 and very easy to get to.
