City Lakes

Ardmore City lakes include City Lake, Jean Neustadt, Mountain Lake and Scott King which are located in South Central Oklahoma. Each lake offers an abundant supply and variety of fish. The City of Ardmore tries to provide every lake visitor with a quality outdoor experience. Handicap accessible fishing piers make it easy for the entire family to enjoy the sport of fishing. The Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Department also helps by checking all of the City Lakes annually to help maintain a healthy fish population.
