It was a lovely day

The day was lovely, the weather was nice, water was warm enough for kids to be playing in the water, and a few boaters in the water as well.

I was born and raise at this lake. It is not what it used to be when I was younger. Yes the water is red, we are in Oklahoma after all, but the place is a beautiful place. I visit there often with my husband, children and friends. We fish, swim, picnic and go out on the boat at this... More

The lake provides great views, but is very "red" muddy. There are many places to camp and well to just have a panic. The best thing is that it is so close to the city and can easily be visited in a day!

This a very beautiful place. There is a nice restaurant by the lake but it is only open for dinner. This picture of the great blue heron was taken by the restaurant on the side of the lake.

Arrived close to sunset. Some wildlife. Looked like people were swimming. Areas for picnics. Primitive toilet facilities, but they were clean.

We have been boating at Thunderbird for over 20 years. My children grew up on the lake. We usually go to the restaurant a few times a year, and have always enjoyed it. The lake is kind of dirty, and some of the people can be interesting, but overall we have always had a good time.

Very nice lake for the size. Easy to get in and out of and love the Cafe on the lake! The food was awesome! and they have a couple of guys that play on Friday and Saturday night.. just chilling out with your family or friends. We celebrated my best friends birthday here. Is kid friendly.

Nice place to go visit, specially during sunset. Sometimes the park is closed due to weather related conditions, so check before visiting. Recommended.
