Sooner Lake straddles the county line 22 miles northeast of Perry across Noble County and Pawnee County. With a surface area of 5,400 acres and an average depth of 28 feet, Sooner Lake is considered one of Oklahoma's premier bass lakes. Its primary use is a cooling reservoir for the coal fired electric generating plant, but its recreation opportunities make it fun place for the family to spend the day.

The Lake has a well-established striper fishery and a newly developed Saugeye fishery.
