  • Close to city, Clean, even the restrooms were clean, plenty of grilling areas. We did not go into the water but saw a lot of other ppl driving their boats etc. Saw a lot of people fishing as well.  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • 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 ca...  more »

  • Visiting as a bicycle tourist. Took one of the cheap campsites. Seems like the more expensive ones are just lakeside (better view). Bathroom facilities were basic, but clean enough. There's an outdoor shower on the beach site bathroom area. Ticks and ants to watch out for in the summer, but nothing excessive.
  • Always a ton of fun! But you have to come often to really get to know what all you will need. I still recommend Arcadia Lake for anyone who enjoys being outdoors!
  • It's a great place for hiking, picnic or just walking around. Wonderful view!
  • Its nice when its not peak time for visitors. The fishing for sandies can be great early in the morning like 5:30 or 6am is perfect. Catfish can be good as well. Water clarity less than a foot or so. Scenic lake. No lake or boat permit required. Just the $12.00 state park fee to launch boat. The disc golf course is very technical with mostly very tight tree lined fairways. Jet skis limited to certain areas which may or may not be a good thing depending on your use of the lake.
  • Beautiful walking and quietude, just minutes from the City of Edmond. The dam is a pretty cool sight but the stunning rose-colored rocks are what make this place special. From any entrance or trailhead, it's a scenic walk amongst trees and brush one moment, prairie grass the next, to peaceful shoreline. The trash and debris left by campers and fishermen is plenty and saddening but overall it's a pleasant experience so close to the metro.
