I just moved to Oklahoma City from Minneapolis, MN in which has about 10,000 lakes and a lot of beaches. Oklahoma gets extremely hot in the summer and it blows my mind that there is no beach in Oklahoma City. I came across Lake Hefner and is very beautiful and is only lacking a beach. Oklahoma could make a lot of money if Lake Hefner had a beach it's just so crazy. If Lake Hefner was in MN it would Have a beach from one park all the way to the next park. Come on Oklahoma!!! Spend money on a beach instead of BICKTOWN BEACH.

I'm so glad I had asked my server at Iron Star for directions to the lighthouse area. Apple maps and the map on this app shows you the wrong direction!

He told me to follow the directions to Louie's Grill and Bar since the lighthouse is directly there. Glad I did! It's such a nice place to relax and sit by the water. People come and go just to take a photo of the lighthouse but I recommend staying awhile longer by sitting on the bench (only 2) and enjoying the little splashes and scenery.

People letting dogs run in park. I guy golfing in the park, parked on the grass, near a sign that clearly stated no golf in the park. He had to base several signs stating stay on the road. Another idiot drove through the fence and was in the lake bed. Again passed a sign stated this is against city rules. Oh and all the people on bicycles running stops signs and speeding, but don't saying thing to them they will flip you off and cus at you.

Great place to bike for all ages. There is always a breeze which is nice... It takes several hours to get around the lake on leisurely ride...
Fun to stop at one of the restaurants right on the bike trail on east side of lake...
Beware of wind... coming back in against the wind at end of ride can be a test!!

We were at Lake Hefner to go to Momma Rojas Mexican Grill and it was still early so we took a nice stroll around the restaurants of Louis's and Momma Rojas, the light house lsland and just had a good walk. People using the path were friendly and courteous. it was fun watching the runners, bikers and walkers. Evergthing was clean, well manicured and just a great space for picnics, walks and exercising. we enjoyed sitting at the windows at Rojas and watching the ducks, the sail boaters and being at the waters edge while dining

You will see so many people walking, biking, running and boating around the lake. The trails are nicely paved and the lake breeze is nice. We always walk out to the light tower and sit on the bench before we go. Watch out for angry geese!

Rode the loop on my road bike twice. This has the potential to be one of the nicer spots to ride in OKC however the amount of garbage, specifically on the road leading to the parking lot, was beyond acceptable.
It's a shame that people are ruining what should be a beautiful location to view nature and exercise.

I have been chased out of the water twice when the heat was over !01 degrees and I slipped in the water to cool off. I don't get it. Why power boats are okay but humans are not? The lake is pretty boring and often low. Biking around the lake and picnicking make the experience okay but boating is a disappointment. Don't know if they still have kite surfing. Strange to have a lake and not allow people in it. Ducks poop. Birds poop. People can't do worse. what's the logic? Try Lake Arcadia; much better deal.

Good locale for solitude outside the downtown area. We have been to this lake several times for walks and once for lunch as well. On the south side of the lake it is quieter and makes for perhaps a more relaxing experience.
The Mexican restaurant in the east side of the lake I have reviewed elsewhere but my wife and I would just call it "okay". Not sure about "Louis".
In the winter-- where we are as of this writing-- you may find yourself alone on that trail. You may or may not prefer that.
With the wind, it's pretty chilly on that path!
Enjoy.

Lake Hefner is a beautiful lake with many walking and biking trails that are clean and make you feel like you are safe. Enjoy the nice restaurants to choose from as well.
