Who would've thought that people Kiteboard in OKC? And on Thanksgiving? No joke, last year I was making a run for some last minute goods and what should I see as I pass by but an intrepid youngster living it up on Lake Hefner. If you miss the Ocean, sailboats and all things nautical, then I would encourage a brief... More

Lake Hefner is a beautiful destination, with restaurants, a lighthouse, and playgrounds on the east side. A beautiful walking and bicycle path circles the Lake, approximately 10 miles around. The west side also contains beautiful walking paths and easy access to the road above the dam. I drive 40 min. weekly to walk parts of the Lake. Popular with families,... More

Great place for a hike! Or to try out paddle boarding or kayaking. Stars and Stripes park is also a great place for a picnic.

Take a hike, no seriously! Hike, bike or skate around the lake. On the southern side there are trees for a shaded nature walk. There's so much to do- see the picturesque lighthouse and have a meal or drink at one of the restaurants at the lake.

My sister and I were passing through Oklahoma City as she accompanied me back to the East Coast from a business-related trip that took me out West. We stopped in Oklahoma City for the night and decided to check out a little of the town before continuing back to North Carolina. I'd heard that there was a lighthouse at Hefner... More

I came here to enjoy a walk in the sunshine. There is a great trail that goes around the lake. There are also a few restaurants with outdoor seating over looking the waterfront. Many people were there walking their dogs around the lake or riding bikes.
