Overview

Sheppard Point is an excellent destination for access to Oklahoma's Heyburn Lake and taking advantage of hiking and sightseeing in nearby Lake Heyburn State Park.

Sheppard Point offers a handful of equestrian-friendly sites where horses can be kept behind the sites on tether poles, with direct access to the trail system.

Natural Features:

Heyburn Lake lies in the Sandstone Hills of the Osage Section of Oklahoma's central lowlands. The picturesque setting of grasslands and gently sloping, wooded hills, provides a stunning backdrop for recreation in the area.

The area is mostly forested with oaks, blackjack, and the occasional hickory, ash, elm or cottonwood tree. In spring, flowering wild plum and redbud trees add color to the soft, green landscape.

Recreation:

Picnicking, water skiing, boating and swimming are some of the favorite activities at Heyburn Lake.

Anglers catch catfish, bass and crappie while hunters seek white-tailed deer and wild turkey.

Daily equestrian riding is permitted on the trails from dawn through dusk, with a small associated fee of $3 per trailer.

Facilities:

Sheppard Point has a selection of both tent and RV campsites. Perks include hot showers, a boat ramp and playground. Group picnic shelters are available as well.

Nearby Attractions:

Visitors can explore the various parks at Heyburn Lake including Sunset Bay, Overlook and Heyburn Park. Keystone Lake lies about 20 miles to the north. Tulsa is less than 30 miles to the northeast.
