    It’s really in Denison, just up the road from Sherma. Take the Loy Lake off ramp, cross 75 and you’re right at the entrance. If coming from Durant, Ok, take either Crawford St or Loy Lake. They both put you on the frontage road, which takes you to the Loy Lake entrance. You can miss the statue of “IKE” at the entrance of the park. Gail
