What to do in Lake Texoma State Park

Everything is big about Lake Texoma. The lake sprawls into two states. It is the place to catch record-setting fish (catfish and small-mouth bass), plus a sprawling setting for golf, water sports, hiking and recreational activities for the entire family.

Lake Texoma is Oklahoma's second largest lake, and one of the premier striped bass hot spots in the Southwest. Besides fishing, the park offers swimming, camping, picnic areas, horseback riding, trail rides, tennis, hiking, nature programs, indoor fitness and recreation programs. Golfers can choose between two 18-hole courses complete with driving range, putting greens, club rentals and pro shop. Swimmers can choose from beach swimming or an outdoor pool. Other facilities include RV and tent sites, comfort stations with showers, public laundry, boat ramps, playgrounds, tennis courts, hiking trails, riding stables, full service marina and striper guide fishing services. Lake Texoma Resort is also on site and offers dining in the Waterfront Restaurant or the poolside lounge. For information or reservations on lodge rooms or cottages, call 800-528-0593.
