Lake Waurika is approximately two miles wide and eleven miles long with 80 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 10,000 acres.
The Waurika dam is located on Beaver Creek, a tributary of the Red River, about six miles northwest of Waurika, Oklahoma.
Visitors to Lake Waurika will find the dam structure itself an impressive sight. A road runs across the top of the dam and access roads are located at each end of the dam.
The lake is set in rolling prairies interspersed with croplands and timbered areas. Protection and blending with the natural environment was a primary concern in the design and construction of Lake Waurika. Wherever possible, trees, shrubs, and other desirable vegetation were left in their natural state in order to enhance the environment.
The scenic irregular shoreline and gently sloping land to the water's edge is an open invitation for outdoors family fun and relaxation. There are six recreation areas located around the lake that include such facilities as boat launching ramps, campgrounds, sanitary facilities, picnic tables and shelters.
Boating and skiing enthusiasts will be pleased with the large areas of open water and the scenic shoreline. There are four large embayments and a number of smaller coves that make boating on the lake a real pleasure.
