Big Beautiful lake on both sides of states of Oklahoma and Texas. It has some of the best stripper fishing in the world, and some beautiful parks for swimming and camping. If around the Denison Dam area, near towns of Cartwright or Colbert on the 4th of July there is a huge firework show that you can participate in at the town center of Cartwright. Besure and stop at Stubbs Fireworks at the gas station for the best deals around with the best selection.

We visited several lakes in the DFW area and Lake Texoma is by far my favorite. This lake is the 12th largest Corps lake in the US with approx 89,000 acres surface area. The lake is very diverse, offering rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, islands and coves. The red river feeds into the lake from the West so the water on that side is not very clear, but the water by the dam is deep and clear. If you don't have a boat or PWC, don't worry, you can't rent it at one of the 12 marinas on the lake. Campgrounds and cabins are available around the lake. Lake traffic picks up from Memorial Day to Labor Day. My favorite time of the year here is 4th of July weekend, it's a magical weekend with lots of events and great fireworks. Watch out for the holiday boaters though, they tend to be reckless...

We went out with Anthony of Anthony's guide service at lake Texoma on 10-21-14. Very professional, and awesome service. Anthony got us on the fish and worked his tail off. I highly recommend him for Striper fishing on lake Texoma. Reasonable and just a real nice guy and experience!

It's Texas in a drought right now so you shouldn't be surprised when the water level is low. The water level is low in my toilets right now it's that bad. That aside, the lake was still very usable for our group of 5. Any hazards were marked efficiently and there was more than enough open water to cruise around the lake and stay away from the other boats. Overall a great experience.

Lake Texoma is awesome. We spent the weekend amping at Eisenhower State Park and it was wonderful. There are so many great campsites there. Fishing is also very good within the park. There are two nice fishing piers to fish from and one of them is lighted. You can also fish easily from the bank.

There is a great beach there is a nice cove with cliffs on all sides. It was beautiful.
