Things to do on the Oklahoma side of Lake Texoma

With a million and one things to do in the Texoma area, it gets a little overwhelming trying to plan your stay.

Please keep in mind that this is a very short list of what Texoma has to offer. There are literally hundreds of ways to spend your time at Texoma, and it is impossible to provide info on it all, but here are a few of our favorites for the Oklahoma side of lake Texoma.

Hiking: Cross Timbers Hiking Trail is about 45 minutes west. It is a great hike along the bluffs overlooking the lake, only about 300' of elevation change on the trail but it's nice. During the rainy season, it can be washed out. Google Cross Timbers Hiking Trail for more information.

Driving around the lake: Looking to drive off road without 4-wheeling? Check into Fobb Bottom state recreational hunting area which is close. Also about 45 minutes away, this is Oklahoma State Wildlife Management Area. Over 2000 acres of floodplains, river bottom and cropland. Be careful in the sand near the water. You can hunt on this land (with the appropriate licenses and in the appropriate seasons).

Day Trip: Turner Falls & Pies.  Turner falls is a water fall in Davis Oklahoma. It’s located about 1 hour 30 minutes from our properties. I have taken my kids there many times; the property is pretty and has a neat history. Call turner falls to make sure they are open.  On the way home, there is a little shop that makes Pies. They are single serving pies you get right from the kitchen.

Day Trip: Tishomingo. “Tish” as some folks call it located about 1 hour north of Pottsboro, and 45 minutes from Kingston. This is small town USA. It’s recently famous for having a restaurant and bar the Blake Shelton owns, but I like it as a simple day trip. They have a little park that has a water feature that younger kids can enjoy.  Learn more about the city at
