Lake Chickasha

Lake Chickasha Aerial ViewLake Chickasha was built in the late 1950s as an alternate water source for our community. Since it's construction the lake has also provided many water recreation activities. The recreation activities at the lake are under the direction of the Chickasha Parks and Recreation Department.

On January 14, 2014, a Park System Master Plan was adopted by the City Council. This plan included several recommendations for the lake. The Parks Department is working with the City Council to implement a new strategy to make the lake one of our premier parks.

When the program is implemented, the department will start developing new restroom facilities along with new campsites and other infrastructure that will make the lake a nice, family-friendly place to spend time.

We would appreciate your recommendations on what you would like to see improved at the lake. You may send your ideas by emailing Lake Chickasha.
