Lake Atoka is located 100 miles southeast of Oklahoma City and 40 miles north of Lake Texas and the River Red (state line with Texas).
Oklahoma City constructed the reservoir in 1959; it supplies water to Lake Draper (Lake Stanley Draper) in Oklahoma City through a 60-inch pipeline.
Atoka Lake has a shoreline of 59 miles and the land surrounding it is virtually covered with dense forests. Visitors come here often as the lake provides immense natural beauty along with fishing, hunting and various other activities.
The Lake Atoka Reservation Association (LARA) was created by the City of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust, and the City of Atoka in 1974 to administer use of the Reservation, its resources and facilities.
