This is one of the better lakes in the area, since it cost to enter it is usually better maintained than some of the other local lakes. There is a beach area, lots of picnic and grill areas.

I've camped here, hiked here, biked here, and fished here. I love this place, it's a bit of a drive from the main OKC, but it's like a hidden gem. There's so much to do. There's an entrance fee per car, so carpool. I love...More

I believe Arcadia Lake restricts PWC's to a certain area of the lake. Due to the number of crafts in that area, it is likely that the concern would be for it to become too congested and dangerous. Just a guess on my part.
