Please note that the forecasts only take into account rain on the ground. As a result, the forecasts are subject to change as soon as any type of rain event occurs.


If you are near the dam and hear the siren sound, you should prepare for a rapid change in water levels, because the siren signals that the amount of water being released is going to rapidly change. Boaters are also cautioned not to cross the buoy line at the intake structure as doing so puts you and the passengers in your boat in danger.

    Thank you for visiting! Free would be the Denison Damsite but there are no courtesy slips. The next closest would be Eisenhower State Park. There is a $5 park entrance fee and you might be able to use a courtesy slip at Eisenhower Yacht Club which is in the park. Also Grandpappy Point Marina has an inexpensive boat ramp and might have courtesy slips. Here are links to maps:

    Hope this helps!

    We are new to Texoma and are looking for ramp access close to I75. Would prefer free and access to a courtesy slip as we have some little ones going with us. Can you recommend a good launch site like this or maybe something reasonable?

    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!
