TULSA - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District announces winter campground operations for Lake Texoma to take effect Oct. 1.


These seasonal closures align with the Corps of Engineers’ efforts to manage recreation resources efficiently while minimizing negative impacts to visitors.


Designated campsites will provide electrical service and a potable water source centrally located at the campground. Winter camping rate is $12 per night, and half price for Golden Age, Access, and America the Beautiful cardholders. Campers pay camping fees at self-deposit fee stations at or near the entrance of each designated park. Campsites will be available on a first-come first-served basis.


A change to this year’s winter camping operations is the seasonal closure of Buncombe Creek and Damsite campgrounds. There will also be a reduction in the number of campsites available for winter camping in Caney Creek, Platter Flats, and Johnson Creek campgrounds. While the impacts of these changes to camping areas and campsite availability will be felt by the public, there are several camping alternatives at other Corps recreation areas located near these affected campgrounds.


Designated camping will be available in the following public use areas and at the sites specified:
