Overview

Lakeside Campground is located on Lake Texoma in Oklahoma's Cross Timbers Region. The lake is said to be the "Playground of the Southwest," where outdoor activities like fishing, boating, hiking and hunting abound.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the eastern side of Lake Texoma. Post and blackjack oaks forest the rolling hills of the region. Deer, turkey, bobcats, hawks, waterfowl and songbirds are abundant around the lake.

Recreation:

Lake Texoma is a large reservoir with an excellent fishery and many access points. Boating, swimming, water skiing, hunting, birding and relaxing on the sandy beaches are the typical pursuits of most visitors.

The lake is known as the "Striper Capital of the World," one of the few reservoirs in the nation where striped bass reproduce naturally. Other popular species include largemouth and smallmouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, white crappie, black crappie, channel catfish and blue catfish.

Also available is the scenic Cross Timbers hiking trail, a very popular trail that winds for 14 miles above the lake on rocky ledges and through blackjack woodland. Forty miles of equestrian trails surround the lake as well.

Facilities:

This popular campground offers 137 campsites, most of which have electrical and water hookups. A large, day-use group picnic shelter is available with hookups as well. The shoreline is within 150 feet.

Other amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers, and drinking water. Two dump stations, two boat ramps and two docks are located on-site.

Nearby Attractions:

The lake features two wildlife refuges, two state parks, and 23 commercial concession areas dedicated to the enjoyment of over six million visitors annually.
