Kitchen Lake Bridge Information:
People report different ways to get to Kitchen Lake Bridge and the Witch’s House. We’ve summarized the various directions below as well as we could.
Kitchen Lake Bridge is located just beyond 119th and Air Depot Boulevard in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It is at the northwest corner of SE 119th Street and South Air Depot Boulevard just east of where Sooner Road curves to the west for ¼ of a mile. Old Sooner Road is no longer in use, according to one report. According to this report, Sooner Road is blocked off such that the only way to reach Kitchen Lake Bridge is to walk. 119th Street is located west of Kitchen Lake. A bridge at 119th Street washed out making 119th rather inaccessible. The bridge that crossed the creek just west of Midwest Boulevard was, according to one resource, “The” Kitchen Lake Bridge. This bridge washed out 30-40 years ago and was not rebuilt.
One source said the Kitchen Lake Bridge can be reached via Midwest Boulevard in Oklahoma City.
Yet another recommendation was to take I-240 and I-35. Go east to Sooner RD (77H) Go south to 119th (theres a sign that says ‘Firstep’. Then, turn Left ( East) and it is located about 500 ft to the west of Air Depot on the north side.
The real destination is not so much Kitchen Lake Bridge as the “Witch’s House”, according to some people. The Witch’s House is supposedly located about 2 miles from Kitchen Lake. The house is no longer standing, but it was located on the north side of the lake about ¼ of a mile from where the former Kitchen Lake Bridge once spanned the creek. All that is left of the “house” is a chimney that has crumbled down to about 2 feet tall.
