We live near the lake and love it! We have a boat slip at Grandpappy and spend most of our free time on the lake. People are very friendly.

The lake was a little high due to some recent flooding but was still a beautiful sight. The powerhouse was an awesome site as well. I haven't seen that much water being discharged in years from the lake. Great fishing and great camping areas. Great riding for motorcyclists around the lake and surrounding areas.

This lake is about like average. There are fun things to do. There are some good restaurants and swimming areas, but the easiest once to access are small. They do have camping, but I live close enough I don't have too.

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...
