Located on the Oklahoma and Texas border and nurtured by the Red and Washita Rivers, Lake Texoma is one of America’s favorite lakes.
With over seven million visitors annually enjoying its recreational facilities it is ranked first among Corps of Engineers lake projects nationwide, with visitors spending over 90 million hours at the lake.
One reason for Lake Texoma’s popularity is its proximity to both Oklahoma City and Dallas. Visitors can get away from their hectic city lives and lose themselves in the tranquility of Lake Texoma. It is an easy drive of approximately 90 minutes from Dallas or two hours from Oklahoma City.
Lake Texoma, impounded by the Denison Dam, encompasses 89,000 surface acres of water with 580 miles of shorelines. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and private resorts have developed and operate many public parks as well as resorts and marinas providing everything from day-use camping activities to upscale lodging and marinas.
There’s something to appeal to everyone including boaters, both power and sail; water skiers and personal water craft enthusiasts; golfers from duffers to those more accomplished; campers seeking to enjoy an outing under the stars to those in state-of-the art rigs; even hunters who want to use their skills with a bow and arrow or with more sophisticated weaponry. Hikers and bird watchers also find Lake Texoma an exciting place to visit.
Lake Texoma is truly “A Lake for All Seasons”!
