Can’t believe this is a man-made lake, roughly 9.4 miles around it. Good for walking, biking. With strong winds, sailing and windsurfing are popular too and beautiful to watch. There’re several parks for younger ones, good restaurants too. Plus, it has a lighthouse!

From enjoying oysters and champagne at sunset over the lake to early morning biking and walking, Hefner is a way of life for Okies.

We drove out to the lake a little before sunset and were thoroughly entertained by the number and variety of ducks and geese. We also caught a lovely sunset with sailboats skimming across the water.

We went to watch the sunset. We parked the car nearby and walked with the kiddos around the lake and to the lighthouse for the best views. Absolutely stunning!

We drove around the lake, and did a walk as well !!! It's a quite & serene place. We saw few families doing BBQ, as well. My 6 year old was happy to see the ducks and chase them around !!!

I enjoy going to Hefner Lake to walk a piece of the trail or, let's be honest, Pokehunt. This is a great place for cycling (I hear from friends). There is some major traffic around the lake, but the trails and parks are removed from...More

No, there are no bike rental places at the lake. Good idea, though!
