Tucker Tower at Lake Murray

Tucker Tower is located in Ardmore, Oklahoma at Lake Murray State Park and is an icon for southern Oklahoma and beyond. Overlooking the beautiful Lake Murray, it is well worth a visit to experience the sights in and around the tower, as well as the history the location has to offer. This tower was intended as a summer home for Governor Bill Murray and now stands as a lighthouse sentinel many years later. Make sure to stop by next time you visit the lake for a fishing or camping trip!

The Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department has launched a new parking pass program for Oklahoma State Parks. For more information about state parks and how to purchase a parking pass, please click here
