Lake Texoma is Open for Business
Welcome to Lake Texoma!
The lake holds many surprises for first-time visitors. For example, who would expect a string of islands with sandy beaches? Or bald eagles? The islands are especially popular on summer weekends - they're the place to "see and be seen." Bald eagle watching is a popular autumn activity. Several charter companies offer special tours to view these majestic birds.
Lake Texoma is great for all types of boating from power to sail. There's usually so much activity you can be entertained just watching all the boats on the lake. Personal watercraft, water skiers and wind surfers all consider the lake an excellent place to have fun. The serpentine shape of the lake creates plenty of sheltered coves so it's always possible to find a calm, quiet spot even on the windiest days. You'll find any type of boat available to rent or to buy - from personal watercraft to ski boats to party barges and houseboats.
Of course, mention Lake Texoma to a fishing enthusiast and they'll immediately think "striper!" Texoma is famous for excellent fishing for striped bass and other species. Plenty of professional fishing guides are available to ensure a great experience whether you're a novice or a seasoned angler.
This area is an immense playground - even off the water. Two wildlife refuges, two state parks, fifty-four U.S Army Corps of Engineers - managed parks, twenty-six resorts and hundreds of campgrounds surround the lake. Texoma's newest golf course, Chickasaw Pointe, brings a whole new level of excitement to an area already known for outstanding golf.
If you want to sail, but don't own a boat, there are several charter companies on the lake that can provide a vessel. You'll find selections ranging from 25 to 48 feet in length complete with accommodations for living or just picnicking. All you'll need to pack is your food and gear.
If you've only dreamed of sailing, you can charter a boat with an instructor to see what it's like. If you discover that this is the life for you, the charter companies offer lessons to get you started. Lessons usually consist of three days on the water or two nights in a classroom and one day on the water.
