Lee Lake is a NO WAKE lake however boats, kayaks and canoes are allowed. All watercraft that does not exceed five miles per hour, which is how the State of Oklahoma defines a ‘no-wake’ vessel, are permitted.

While Lee Lake is primarily a fishing lake and was developed partially with federal funds supporting the “urban fishing” concept, some types of watercraft are allowed at the lake. Examples of watercraft permitted at the lake are kayaks, sailboats, rowboats, paddleboards and float tubes. Wave-runners and ski-do’s are not permitted.

Boating permits are not required at either City-owned lake — Lee Lake or Hudson Lake; however, Oklahoma fishing licenses are required at all City of Bartlesville-owned reservoirs, in accordance with Oklahoma law. Safe boating practices as set forth and enforced by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety must be adhered to as well, including mandatory use of personal flotation devices, or life jackets.

Swimming in the lake is strictly prohibited.

The lake is open 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day. Dogs outside Cooper Dog Park must be kept on-leash. Parking — as well as boat launching and landing — is allowed only in designated areas.
