If the water levels are high, then come and watch the dam. I love engineering so watching the dam spill over is pretty magnificent. It's free so don't expect much. I wouldn't go if there is a drought since it won't offer much to look...More
Impressive to see this dam up close even though it’s quite small as dams go. We went just after a period of heavy rainfall so the water levels were high -there were lots of people there to see the dam and also to go fishing.
I suppose it's alright, as dams go. There's really not much to take in. The river is pretty much a polluted mess except when the flood gates are open. Strong currents wash down the scum look. There's no shop or store on the shore so...More
As a UPS Driver, I delivered to the Lake Texoma office and the Denison Dam Power Plant for 20 years. The flood gates are majestic. I've seen the lake at over 640 ft. twice. that was devastating. The best part are the Bluebonnets that bloom...More
A mile of engineering damming a great old lake. The water is clear, considering its muddy feed. That is due to the limestone bed which helps clarify the water. Western access signage is lacking but that's what GPS is far? Our guided fishing trip produced...More
What a treat it is to have such a wonderful piece of engineering in this community! The views of Lake Texoma and the Red River are amazing, and if you're lucky it's truly a spectacle when the open up the flood gates!

The Dam, itself, is locked up like Ft. Knox. But, I was their UPS guy for 2o years. I have seen a lot and was told things the public doesn't get to hear. And the humming sound from the Generators is deafening. If you can go in the spring, about a month before Easter, the bluebonnets are in full bloom. It attracts people from all over the world.
