    Lake Texoma

    Lake Texoma - it's about 1 hour by car from Dallas and just west of Denison. It's a big, attractive lake with opportunities for camping, fishing, boating, hiking and etc.... And, right on the other side of the lake is Oklahoma. One of the best lakes in the area. A hiking trail is in Eisenhower State Park - and a better one begins at Juniper Point - both on the Texas side. Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge is located at Lake Texoma too...Hagerman is a birdwatchers hang-out...people can hike and fish there too.

    Denison Dam and Powerhouse

    by keeweechic Updated Jul 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Denison Dam and Powerhouse was constructed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to restrain 89,000 surface acres of water that makes up Lake Texoma. The dam provides hydroelectric power for North Texas and Southern Oklahoma. An interesting thing is that German POW labour was used in the construction which lasted from 1938 - 1944.
