Cool Off This Summer at Boomer Lake

Within the city of Stillwater, Oklahoma is a summertime favorite for locals and visitors alike: Boomer Lake. Roughly two and a half miles away from the Atherton Hotel, the lake was created as a reservoir by damming Stillwater Creek. Covering 251 scenic acres, Boomer Lake is a renowned area for outdoor fun and recreation.

Walking trails, picnic tables, grills, and pavilions offer park visitors the ideal setup for a day of nature and family fun. Another highlight is the 18-hole disc golf course. From the docks or by boat, fishing is allowed with an applicable permit. The waters of the lake are teeming with bass, saugeye, crappie, catfish, and more.

Additionally, the summer months are a great time to take advantage of the stand-up paddleboard and kayak rentals. With stringent policies in place against the spread of COVID-19, the water sports rentals at Boomer Lake are offering a safe way to maintain protocols while relaxing out on the water.
