We visited the Hefner Lake and it is truly beautiful. A great man-made lake that allows the people of OKC to enjoy various water sports. A number of nice restaurants surround the lake and offer fantastic views of the Oklahoma sunsets.

My friends and I love Lake Hefner. If you are a bird watcher there is never a lack of birds to watch at Lake Hefner. The lake is an unexpected pleasure in the middle of a big city!

This is a great lake for swimming and picnic. Never crowded. You can find a spot and feel like nobody else is around. Take a picnic and enjoy the day.
