Ardmore Chamber of Commerce


Lake Murray History- Lake Murray was built by the WPA back in the 1930's close to Ardmore, Oklahoma.  It was the first major lake impounded in Oklahoma and contains largemouth, spotted and smallmouth bass.  The lake is noted for yielding large numbers of smallmouth in the 2-3 pound class and has given up smallmouth over 5 pounds. Just ask Bob Myers

With 5,700 acres of crystal clear waters and beautiful surrounding landscape it offers outdoor enthusiasts a wide variety of activities. The state park encompasses over 12, 000 acres and is operated by the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Departments and is one of the state's most popular attractions.

The closest major airport is DFW airport north of Dallas,  an air strip in the state park for small planes, also north of park 5 miles is the Ardmore Executive airport.
