An 89,000-acre jewel set into the landscape of Oklahoma and Texas, Lake Texoma is a sparkling wonder of deep blue water and beautiful green shores. With more than 6 million annual visitors, the lake is one of the most popular Federal recreation facilities in the country offering everything from waterskiing to scenic nature hikes. Two-thirds of Lake Texoma lies in Oklahoma.
The lake area includes two wildlife refuges, two state parks, US Army Corps of Engineers managed parks, many campgrounds, more than twenty resorts, and a variety of excellent golf courses. Powerboating, power sailing, personal watercraft, water skiers, and windsurfers all consider the land an excellent place to have fun.
Lake Texoma has become a huge sailing center based on the lake’s size, depth, and miles of sailing shoreline. Boasting record striper fishing, Texoma’s salt content for a freshwater lake makes it perfect for the striped bass spawning and living habitat. Fishing guides flourish as well as the fish in this environment. Texoma is host to many fish varieties, too many to name them all.
Boating and water sports are another major attraction. Boats of all types and sizes, as well as personal watercraft, can be rented at many locations around the lake. Many of the marinas also provide gas docks for refueling the watercraft. Moorings are available for sailboats as well as boat slips for motorboats and yachts.
Other amenities that surround the water are picnic pavilions, hiking trails, golf courses, rental cabins, motels, hotels, sport and workout facilities, restaurants, casinos, bait and tackle, flea markets, spas, and retail shops providing everything one might want in a vacation destination.
