Lake R.C. Longmire, situated between Pauls Valley and Stratford, features 15 miles of shoreline and over 900 surface acres. Constructed primarily as a water supply lake by the late R.C. Longmire, the lake has a number of recreational activities including fishing, boating, camping, hiking, bird watching, hunting and swimming. Thanks to the Oklahoma Wildlife Department, it has been designated as a trophy bass lake, and is also abundant in Crappie and Channel Catfish.
