Lake Carl Blackwell

A family-friendly recreational retreat.
Oklahoma State University’s Lake Carl Blackwell is located a few miles west of our Stillwater campus. The OSU Lake Carl Blackwell community welcomes visitors from all walks of life, from our students, staff, and faculty to local residents and beyond! With a plentiful amount of RV and tent sites, along with cabins, we have room for everyone! The lake is perfect for excellent fishing, fun boating activities, and swimming areas. Our substantial shoreline offers plenty of space for picnicking, beach volleyball, equestrian trail riding, and other recreational activities. We are surrounded by wildlife, including deer, who enjoy the serenity of these surroundings.
