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. Room rates $$-$$$$ (45-150). A fee of $3 per vehicle per day applies to day-use visitors at the Rooster Creek area (fee is waived if camping in this area). Other group services can include river boat rides, hayrides, massage therapy, dinner theatre and other activities, with advance notice.
History of the Area
Established in 1951, the park was located on a peninsula projecting into Lake Texoma. It covered approximately 1,882 acres of land and offered various recreational activities including fishing, boating and camping.

In addition to its natural beauty, it also housed wildlife such as deer and turkey. The Chickasaw Nation purchased this area from Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department for $14.6 million in March 2007.

The sale led to controversy due to concerns about public access but the tribe assured continued availability for outdoor enthusiasts. However by late 2012 all facilities were closed down except Catfish Bay Marina which remained operational under private management.

April 2 GONE by Bobby Payne

May 31 Great park, great lake by Kelli
park review stars; one to five The lake was muddy along the banks but further out the water was just as clear as you could ask for. The camp ground was neat and well maintained. And the bathrooms were clean and well stocked every time I went to them. I was very impressed and enjoyed our weekend there immensely. The only negatives were that the store at the entrance of the park had very few supplies (including milk and charcoal) but there were plenty of other stores within an easy drive. The second, and more serious, negative was that the fire ants were really bad. But the gentleman that managed the camp grounds came around every day and when we pointed out the mounds, he promptly treated them.

park review stars; one to five The cabins and hotel at Lake Texoma State Park have been closed for several years. Campsites, boat ramps, and a full service marina are still available. One golf course remains open but is no longer operated by the state of Oklahoma.
