Overview

Sardis Lake is located five miles north of Clayton, in beautiful Kiamichi Country in southeastern Oklahoma. The lake covers 14,360 acres, with 117 miles of shoreline, and offers many opportunities for every type of outdoor recreation, including skiing and boating. It impounds Jackfork Creek, a tributary of the Kiamichi River in the foothills of the Ouachita Mountains. There are three campgrounds located around the lake offering various facilities including general hookups, restrooms, playgrounds, boat ramps, showering facilities, swim beach and fishing docks. The lake also has facilities for group camping and picnic shelters equipped with tables, electricity and large outdoor cooking grills.

Although Sardis Lake is known for producing several of Oklahoma's largest bass, the lake also provides fishermen excellent opportunities to catch crappie, catfish, and walleye. Hunters and wildlife enthusiasts will also enjoy visiting the public hunting and wildlife propagation areas near Sardis Lake, which have been set aside on 8,435 acres of lush, undeveloped land.
