Just to the north of Sherman lies beautiful Lake Texoma. Spanning the Texas/Oklahoma border, the shoreline of the lake runs a total of 1250 miles long. This man-made lake was constructed between 1939 and 1944 as a means of flood control. The dam, which is almost three miles long, holds back 89,000 surface acres of water at normal pool level. The power plant is capable of generating 70,000 kilowatts of power. It has been estimated that as much as $90 million has been saved from flood damage.
For the outdoors enthusiast, Lake Texoma offers boating of all kinds, water skiing, camping, swimming, hiking, and don’t forget striper fishing!
