A Walk in the Park

istock 1197985416

If you’re looking for a brief respite into nature, look no further than Lake McMurtry Park, located about twenty minutes from the Atherton Hotel. Known as "Frontier Country’s Best Kept Secret," the park features over twenty-eight miles of multi-use trails for hiking and biking, along with two full-sized disc-golf courses, kayak rentals for visitors to paddle out onto the lake, and fishing docks.

Alongside some of the trails at Lake McMurtry Park, you’ll find designated campsites offering a secluded escape into nature. From fishing docks on either side of the lake, anglers can catch crappie and catfish, while largemouth bass and saugeye can be found out on the water. Regulated by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife, waterfowl hunting is permitted with a report to lake staff required.

Make a trip of it and stay overnight, or visit briefly with a one-day park pass. No matter what your favorite activity is, Lake McMurtry Park has something for you.
