Read Bill Bonelli's interesting Pearl Harbor eyewitness account.

Ski Island Lake subdivision is located in northwest Oklahoma City just west of Lake Hefner.  It has the largest private lake of several lake subdivisions in the area and is the only private metro lake that allows power boats.  136 families make their home here in an addition that enjoys a wonderful community spirit.  

All but four of Ski Island Lake addition homes are directly on the water and enjoy a wonderful view of the lake and its wildlife.  Water skiing, tubing, boating, canoeing and fishing are just a few of the activities enjoyed here.  We come home from a hard day at work, change clothes, walk in our backyard to our boat and go out on the lake.  We may be a little spoiled!

Ski Island Lake has an active social committee who organize lots of activities including an annual resident summer picnic, Music on the Lake which is a live band playing a concert by the water, visits from Santa Claus on his special Santa boat, and a judged Christmas Light display competition that sparks fierce competition among the homeowners.
