Go early if you want to try paddle boarding as the afternoon winds make it pretty hard to go anywhere.

This was so pretty and fun. The grounds are in need of another restroom and trash cans.

What You'll Get


The human body, unlike raisins, white wine, and the wit of Oscar Wilde, isn't meant to be dry. Embark on a watery escapade with today’s Groupon to Oklahoma City Riversport. Choose between the following options:

  • For $17, you get a Discover Rowing class (a $35 value).
  • For $60, you get a dragon-boat excursion for an 11-person boat (a $125 value).

The buoyant staff at Oklahoma City Riversport inspires land dwellers to pick up paddles and explore the local waterways in rowing barges and dragon boats. During the 90-minute Discover Rowing lesson, the instructor’s shoulder-mounted parrot imparts wisdom about rowing shells, oars, and propelling techniques before pupils practice on an indoor rowing machine. When paddlers are skilled enough to navigate the briny seas, they may unleash themselves on tranquil waters atop their flat-bottomed rowing barges. Coordinate class times with friends to take advantage of the nautical carpool lane.

Corral up to 10 compatriots for the one-hour dragon-boat excursion, which sends riders off to conquer waves on a dragon-themed vessel styled after Chinese fishing boats. An onboard drum allows a shipmate to beat out a rhythm to synchronize the boat’s team of paddlers. While paddling through the lake, crews may gaze upon the shoreline at leisure or challenge dolphins to feverish races.
