Keystone Lake’s blue-green water and the natural beauty of its setting — wooded shoreline, sandy beaches, high bluffs, grasslands, and low rolling hills — make it a visual treat the year round. The lake meanders into small valleys, creating many arms and land fingers. A network of county, state, Federal highways invites sightseers into many points overlooking the lake.
The lake is on the Arkansas River 15 miles west of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. This 26,000 acre flood control lake is truly an urban playground. There are 16 recreation areas (3 with alcohol free beaches); 11 boat ramps, miles of sandy beaches, 3 marinas, 2 off-road vehicle areas, 5 short distance trails, a waterfowl refuge, 3 seasonal green tree reservoirs, and thousands of acres of land open to public hunting.
