Try your luck at fishing from the shore or on the lake. You'll likely catch largemouth and striped bass here, along with crappie and bream.
Play on one of three beaches at Lake Okatibbee.
Or, just grab a cold drink and spend some time relaxing in this gorgeous place.
Regardless of how you spend the day here, you're certain to make some great memories with friends and family.
