Eighty-nine thousand acres of fresh water, fishing, boating, swimming, camping, and RVing all come together at Lake Texoma. Only 85 miles from Dallas and 130 miles from Oklahoma City, Lake Texoma sits on the border between Oklahoma and Texas and has much to offer as a vacation destination.

Boasting record striper fishing, Texoma’s salt content for a fresh water lake makes it perfect for the striped bass’ spawning and living habitat. Texoma is host to too many fish varieties to name them all.

Other amenities that surround the water are picnic pavilions, hiking trails, golf courses, cabins for rent, motels/hotels, casinos, spas and retail shops, providing everything one might want in a vacation destination.

Wildlife of all kinds make their home at Lake Texoma and enjoy the serenity of natural wooded areas surrounding the lake.

Another local attraction is the Red River, which forms the border between Texas and Oklahoma and meanders peacefully along 540 miles of twists and bends. A favorite fishing spot is the Red River just below the Denison Dam, where the flow is almost totally dependent upon dam releases at the lake, where hydroelectric power is generated. This usually results in better flows during the hot summer months, when the demand for electricity is higher. Of course, the flow is also influenced heavily by the amount of rainfall received at any given time. The water is usually clear and unpolluted as it leaves Lake Texoma Dam and anglers will find an abundance of alligator gar, channel, blue and flathead catfish, striped, spotted, white, hybrid and largemouth bass.

Lake Texoma and the Red River have something for everyone to enjoy!
