We want to welcome you to Ardmore Oklahoma located in Carter County on the sunny side of the Arbuckle Mountains. Ardmore is ideally located between Dallas and Oklahoma City. Just 90 miles in either direction takes you to one of the big cities. Major highways that service our community include Interstate 35, Highways 70, 77, 77S and State Highway 199.
Ardmore has so much to offer anyone looking for both indoor and outdoor fun in Southern Oklahoma. We have several golf courses, swimming, fishing, hunting, boating, vintage and antique shopping and more. Some of the most popular area attractions include: Lake Murray State Park, Tucker Tower Nature Center, Turner Falls Park, Winstar Casino and Resort, Greater Southwest Historical Museum, Charles B. Goddard Center and so much more.
Even with a population base of around 30,000 Ardmore still maintains its small town charm and friendly atmosphere while offering many amenities of larger metropolis communities. Being centrally located between Dallas and Oklahoma City makes it an ideal, as it is only a 90-minute drive to either international airport.
The beauty of Lake Murray State Park is a site to behold. Lake Murray is one of the states oldest state parks that encompass a 5,700 acre manmade lake that has crystal clear blue water. Even scuba divers come to Lake Murray and dive at Marietta Landing. You owe it to yourself to spend the day and explore Tucker Tower Nature Center that offers a breathtaking view of the lake at the top of the Tower. There is a vast amount of history that can be absorbed by learning about the construction of the lake and how it came to be. Within the Tower Nature Center you will find many fossils, including a 288-pound meteorite that was found nearby.
When you come to visit Ardmore there is so much to do and explore. Everything from shopping downtown on Main Street with all the little boutique shops, exploring antique malls for that special trinket, spending a day at the lake camping, movies, or just enjoying the trails and scenery at Ardmore Regional Park.
After a day of adventure you have a plethora of dining options in town. Our little town has grown substantially over the past several years and now has some larger food chains that have recently opened here. Some of those include: Rib Crib, Interurban, SanteFe Steakhouse, Chilli's, Popeye’s Chicken, Wendy’s, Cotton Patch and many locally owned restaurants as well. One of our personal favorites is Casa Roma downtown. Casa Roma has some of the best Mexican food around. You owe it to yourself to try the potato enchilada with sour cream. I know it sounds odd but your taste buds will dance. Another favorite is Café Alley where you can order their famous chicken fried steak with jalapeno gravy. For a romantic upscale dining experience, get reservations at Fireside Dining. The steaks are incredible and the atmosphere is perfect for a special occasion.
