UCO Outdoor Recreation


Outdoor Adventure 

The Outdoor Adventure Recreation Center offers UCO students, faculty, staff and the Edmond community many opportunities to engage in the outdoors. Our unique facility, located on beautiful Lake Arcadia, houses our fleet of kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards and mountain bikes for both rentals and one-on-one or group instruction.  If you are feeling like an adventure, inquire about our hiking and backpacking trips lead by OAR staff both in and out of state.  The OAR facility is also a great place to hold your next event.  Our conference room and outdoor event space is available to rent and OAR staff is also available to facilitate events, as well. We look forward to seeing you for your next outdoor adventure.
