Lake El Reno was created in 1966 in Canadian County, Oklahoma, near the city of El Reno, by constructing an earthen dam across Fourmile Creek, a tributary of the North Canadian River. The lake has a normal capacity of 709 acre feet, covers a surface area of 170 acres and is surrounded by 4 miles of shoreline.
This Property also has many other assets, several barns, a box-car, several beautiful bedrooms, and even a rodeo awards room. It is situated just to the north of town and is readily accessible. There are pastures and prairie land stretching for a few dozen acres. One of the homes on this property is a log cabin that with a little work could be returned to its former look. The logs have been covered up by siding but are still just as sturdy as ever! This location truly shows some of El Reno’s natural beauty.
This location features a large private horse arena, riding gear and equipment, several acres of prime Oklahoma nature and several very friendly horses! There is a large meeting room, an office, bathroom facilities and a small kitchenette attached to the arena. Nearby hosted on the same property is a log cabin bunkhouse(Photos coming soon).
