Kaw Lake, OK

Kaw Lake, Oklahoma

Kaw Lake's beauty is like a beacon urging you to come romp and play in nature's playground. Here you won't find wall-to-wall houses, you'll find well-designed public campgrounds tucked into the many coves and inlets. You won't find traffic jams or hear screeching tires, but you will find roads that take you where you need to go and trails for hiking, horseback riding and mountain hiking. You won't find polluted air or acres of parking lots, but you will find clean fresh air, sparkling water, the earth beneath your feet and a clear sky - give or take a cloud or two - above your head. It's an ideal vantage point to view nesting eagles in winter.

Kaw Lake covers 17,000 surface acres and has 168 miles of shoreline at the normal elevation of 1010.00 feet above sea level. Ten boat launching ramps provide boaters with easy access to the lake. Once on the water, boaters can find two full service marinas.
