Lake Elmer is located in Kingfisher County, 4 miles northwest of Kingfisher (S7, T16N, R7W). The vegetation around the lake is tallgrass prairie type.

The lake has one boat ramp and two water wells. Kingfisher is the nearest town in which to obtain picnic and fishing supplies. Good numbers of quality size bass and excellent opportunities to harvest big bluegill can be found at this lake.

Lake Elmer was constructed by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation in 1962. The lake was completely drained in 1978 to facilitate shoreline deepening and the construction of berms or fishing jetties. The lake was re-impounded and restocked with fish in 1979 and again in 2011.
