Living at the lake, Raymond Gary Lake in S E Oklahoma is a little slower pace than life in other places – including the speed limit allowable on the water.

Raymond Gary is called a “no-wake” lake.  Your boat is not supposed to make a wake when it goes across the water.  Speed limit is 6 miles per hour.  It doesn’t matter what kind of motor or what kind of boat – don’t go faster than 6 mph.

There is often a discussion at the Lake Association Meetings on how to enforce the water speed limit.  The People that have chosen to buy property around Raymond Gary Lake have decidedly chosen the slower pace of living and they expect lake users to obey the law.

Raymond Gary is a spring fed lake meaning that the water stays just about the same level all of the time.  It has a wide spillway so water is always going over the spillway.  Regardless of heavy rains or droughts, there’s not much variance in levels.  If we have a really big rain upstream and the lake comes up, it’s usually back to normal levels with in 24 hours.

Drought has no affect on the lake level. The last couple of year when our larger lakes were so low that many boat ramps were out of the water and people could not put their boats in the lake, this was not the case at Raymond Gary.
