The Remote Lake In Oklahoma You’ll Probably Have All To Yourself

The United States of America is no stranger to remote and beautiful destinations, and Oklahoma is no exception. Located near the New Mexico border at the tip of the Panhandle nearly six hours from Oklahoma City is Black Mesa State Park. Marking the meeting point between the Rocky Mountains and the shortgrass prairie, this is easily one of Oklahoma’s most remote state parks, and we can’t get enough. Found within this state park is the often overlooked Lake Carl Etling, an off-the-beaten-path spot we’d love to share with you today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
