Visiting at least one Elk City park can be a real day at the beach.
One of 9 city parks maintained by the Parks & Recreation Department, Elk Lake includes a 750-acre park with a 250-acre lake.
Two boat ramps with docks give easy lake access to boaters, and anglers can also use the fishing dock to take advantage of a lake that is stocked with fish.
In addition to boating and fishing on the lake and swimming in the beach area, visitors to the park can take advantage of several amenities, including an 18-hole disc golf course, hiking, and mountain bike and horse trails.
One of the park’s unique attractions is the amphitheater where musical acts have performed, including Country Music legend Merle Haggard.
Picnic pavilions and outdoor grills provide lake users with areas for preparing meals and eating in the shade.
Multiple kiddie playgrounds are also available for small children.
Elk Lake also provides campgrounds and 5 RV parking slots with water and electric hook-ups.
From boating, fishing and swimming, to hiking, camping out and playing, Elk Lake’s many amenities and attractions offer several activities for the whole family to enjoy.
