We had the best site on the lake. We could beach our boat and leave it in the water the whole 14 days that we were there. The City of Edmond owns the lake and the campsite was always clean. The people at the gate was always helpful. We will be out there this coming camping season. The only negative... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful lake to go fishing, kayaking, or to simply go camping upon. The "beaches" are also nice, even for it being in Oklahoma with all of the red mud. The concession stands also make it nice to buy a soda or sunblock. The staff is also always willing to help with anything. I would also... More

Lots of potential but no follow through. They have been touting an asphalt trail around the lake for years but apparently don't have the money. It would be a game changer for Edmond and would make it the most desirable community in Oklahoma.

It's been years since I've been camping because I like my bed and running water, but I wouldn't mind camping here. I like how all the camp sites are separated and each one has a parking spot, a little designated area to set up camp, a fire pit and a grill. The pavilions are wheelchair accessible and even many of... More

Lake Arcadia is a man made beauty. Great place to picnic with family, fish, or watch wildlife. Scenic views as well.

This lake is more like a large pond. The water is very dirty and the beaches were trashy. The swimming areas were ok and good for a short afternoon swim. As far as skiing and tubing, if you don't mind going in a big circle it's ok for that. I was not impressed at all. I recommend everyone wear a... More

An ok lake..definitely not the best in Oklahoma. Not worth the $7 entrance fee just to swim or day camp. Water is dirty brown. Good lake if you have a boat. Camping areas are always so crowded in the summer, which can be fun. Usually too many cops patrolling.

Our family took a boat out on Arcadia Lake for the first time. As complete novices, we had a good first experience boating at Lake Arcadia. It was big enough to fish or boat, but not too big to get lost. The weather was beautiful, there were several other boats out, but we were still able to tube, and explore... More

I live 7 miles from the lake and probably want return. It is a beautiful lake, problem is that it's ran by the city. Even if you want to just drive around on a motorcycle they charge you. My in-laws camped there for a couple of weeks and said it was a constant hassle just to get in and around.... More
