Lake Murray State Park

The most unusual thing at Lake Murray is known as Tucker Tower. It is sort of a shortened obelisk, like the Washington Monument, but not fully grown. Tucker Tower was built by the WPA during the Roosevelt years. It served as a summer retreat for Oklahoma Governor Murray. 

Tucker Tower is no longer a summer retreat. It is the Tucker Tower Museum & Nature Center.

From Tucker Tower's first-floor patio, the tower rises 65 feet into the air, from the top of the tower visitors can look for miles in any direction. The patio is about 60 feet above lake level. The tower has one roofed and two open patios, reached via a flower lined walkway from the parking lot, with a lake lookout along the path.

Tucker Tower opened in 1954 as a geological museum, with the top exhibit being a granular hexahedrite meteorite found on the state park's property in the 1930s. In 1981 the Tucker Tower geological museum expanded its focus to also be a nature center.

The Lake Murray State Park meteorite is the largest of its kind ever found and the fifth largest in the world.
