Hotel at a Glance: Lake Texoma RV Campground
A manmade reservoir fed by the Red River, Lake Texoma straddles the Texas-Oklahoma border and attracts more than 6 million annual visitors—many of them from Dallas, just 85 miles south. Vacationers come to swim, boat, fish, and explore nature trails that wrap around the lake. Lake Texoma RV Campground covers 300 lakefront acres along the lake's southwestern shores. Surrounded by nature, the resort's rustic cabins include all bedding, a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom, and a TV.
- Cast a line into the water and fish for striped bass, one of the lake's most abundant species. (Some even call Lake Texoma the "Striped Bass Capital of the World.")
- Make a splash in the outdoor pool or relax in the hot tub
- Play a game of shuffleboard, mini-golf, basketball, horseshoes, or volleyball
- Head to the clubhouse to participate in bingo night, catch a live music act, or take a line dancing lesson. The resort regularly hosts activities throughout the year.
Gordonville, Texas: Gateway to Lake Texoma
In 1944, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built the Denison Dam along the Red River, designed to control flooding and generate hydroelectricity. As a byproduct, the dam also created Lake Texoma, an expansive freshwater reservoir that straddles the Texas-Oklahoma border. Six million annual visitors head to the body of water to fish its waters, hike its lakefront nature trails, and explore its inlets via boat. Along the south shores, Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is a 12,000-acre habitat for white-tailed deer, bobcats, coyotes , and thousands of migratory birds.
