  • Lake Murray State Park ~Ardmore, OK

    We got to Lake Murray on a Tuesday and it was almost empty at Buzzard Roost Campground where we stayed.

    There are several campgrounds all around the lake but this one was recommended online and had a view of Tucker Tower.

    We got a spot on the end with plenty of room for the kids to play.

    Isn’t this an amazing backyard?!

    Tucker Tower!

    The Nature Center by Tucker Tower was closed on the day we got there but they had a small one at the visitor center that the kids checked out.

    We took a hike that started at Pecan Grove.

    I meant to go on the nature trail that started there but went on a different trail by mistake.

    But the trail was pretty and had some fun bridges.


    Here is a look at the campsites.

    They have water and electric and have nice pads and tables but not much privacy.

    It was really nice while we were there but I am not sure I would have liked it if it was full.

    Just keep that in mind if you go there.

    I could not resist Tucker Tower at sunset.

    The twins are usually a handful so I would not have usually taken sunset pics while they were with me but I could not miss this sight.

    And maybe it was the sunset or the water(or the long hike we had just done) but they were pretty calm.

    This boys birthday was the next day!

    10yrs old!

    Love this kid.

    We were heading home that day but wanted to stop at the Nature Center and Tucker Tower first!

    I am so glad we did because they were both beautiful and interesting!

    Tucker Tower is a short walk from the Nature Center.

    I told him he had to wait for us.

    Mostly because I did not want to be left downstairs with five kids…


    It feels like a castle!


    There are two lookout spots on the tower.

    One about midway and the other at the very top.

    Beautiful views.

    Little Bit tried to give it a kiss she liked it so much…

    I really enjoyed our stay at this park!

    It ended up being a perfect halfway point between our house and Dinosaur Valley State Park!

    If you go, make sure you check out Tucker Tower and the Nature Center!

    Here is the video I made of our trip.
