We drove up and accidently found this little jewel. There is a walking, biking trail all the way around the recreation area. There is also a small pier to fish or just sit and watch the day go by. We had a fun time.

Nice small lake with areas to camp and swim around it. Excellent walking/bike trail all the way around the lake and connects to the campgrounds. You can take a short walk to the top of bromide hill for a beautiful view.

this is a paved walking trail around a very nice lake. There are benches along the way and I seems to be well maintained. Great at sunset!

We love Veteran's Lake. The water is so clear and calm. We stop by everytime we go to Chickasaw National Recreation Center. Wish we had a lake like this near our house.

Veteran's Lake has a nice drive that goes around the lake - within Chickasaw National Recreation Area - there are benches and picnic areas that can be used for sitting and relaxing and watching the sunset. I am glad to see there is still water...More
