What’s Open and What’s Not on Lake Texoma

Lake Texoma  made history three times in 2015, first with record droughts then twice flood waters rushed over the spillway.  We began 2016 with an El Niño weather pattern. It was a great year with the lake open the entire summer.  What will 2017 bring – more floods or drought?  Keep up with the latest updates from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Lake Texoma water levels, road conditions and local marina notices on this page.

    We are still in an El Nino weather pattern but it is much weaker than last year. Hopefully we will have a great big beautiful lake to play in this summer!
