RECREATION LAKES Duncan Lake (10 miles east of Duncan), Clear Creek Lake (13 miles northeast of Duncan), Fuqua Lake (21 miles northeast of Duncan) and Lake Humphreys (9 miles northeast of Duncan) are owned and operated by the City of Duncan. Fuqua is the largest of the four at 1,500 acres. These lakes are popular fishing spots where crappie, catfish, largemouth bass and walleye are found. All four lakes offer boat ramps, dump stations and docks. Duncan Lake also features horse riding trails, sports ranges and a disc golf course. The 10,000-acre Waurika Lake, another local fishing destination, is about a 40-minute drive southeast of Duncan. Waurika Lake also supplies water to Comanche, Duncan, Lawton, Temple and Waurika. The much smaller Comanche Lake sits four miles east of the Highway 53 and Highway 81 intersection. The 160-acre lake is near a nine-hole golf course and offers boat ramps, fishing docks and pavilions.
