Fun things to do at Lake Texoma include going fishing, sunning on the beach and camping. Visitors can also go on a sunset cruise or hike in the wilderness around the lake.
One of the most popular activities at Lake Texoma, considered the striper capital of the world, is striper fishing. Fishermen can either bring a own boat or hire a fishing boat. Those who aren't interested in fishing can still rent a boat to explore the 90,000 acres of lake and the 500-mile shoreline. Swimming, kayaking and boating are only a part of the activities available. Visitors can explore the surrounding wildlife at Eisenhower State Park and Lake Texoma State Park. Both locations offer camping sites and beach access to the lake.
Nature enthusiasts can explore the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge, which measures 12,000 acres, around one end of the lake. This refuge hosts a variety of birds, butterflies and animals. Lucky visitors can catch glimpses or river otters, white-tailed deer and turtles. The land surrounding the lake offers miles of hiking and biking trails. For example, the Cross Timbers Trail is a 15-mile hike bridging the land between Juniper Point and Paw Paw Creek. Hikers begin along the lake's shoreline and move through the wetlands of Cedar Bayou and the treeless expanse of Rock Creek.
