The lake is very shallow and during droughts drives up 100 feet or more from the shoreline. No interesting topography around the lake. Go somewhere else.

Along with the Golf Course a great place to experience the outdoors. Its bicycle trails are one of the finest at over 9 miles. If you are into model airplanes, they have a field. If you like boating ( although probably not this year due to the drought and its a municipal water supply) one of the best in US... More

If you like to hit balls or to walk around with the dogs it is great to spend a nice day in the park here...

This park is great in the hot summer - the wind rolling off the lake makes it much cooler than other parks. But bring a pony tail - it's really windy. The park is new, and the view couldn't be better. I love biking around the lake. It's about 10 miles, so be sure to turn around when you're halfway... More

So close to the city and yet you feel in the middle of some wilderness... We walked for almost an hour and met nobody, there are different areas, some of them really wild. Plenty of birds around, and a quaint lighthouse we loved.

Hefner lake is 8-9 miles around with a defined running trail. During one stretch you can run over the dam. When the weather is nice you can see wind surfers testing their abilities with the Oklahoma winds. There is also a boathouse that rents out kayaks. 3 restuarants on the water and a light house. Great single, couple, or family... More

Lake Hefner is a quaint little lake that offers great restaurants and beautiful scenery for an after dinner stroll. It usually has the perfect amount of wind for those wind surfers out there and trails for dog walkers, bikers, and runners. The sunsets are absolutely breathtaking and can be seen from all lakeside restaurants if you prefer to stay indoors.... More

It's beautiful and great for relaxing. Grounds are maintained well and the playgrounds are fun for children. Take a picnic and it's a great summer activity.
