Activities and Amenities
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.
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.
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.
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.
