Review and Rating of Eisenhower State Park in Denison
Eisenhower State Park is perched on rocky bluffs above the 89,000 acre Lake Texoma about 5 miles from Denison. The Park is huge and encompasses over 430 acres and has 5 different areas for camping. The Park is located a on the south east end of the Lake a couple miles from the Lake Texoma dam.
There are tent sites with water, screen shelters, full hook-up pull through sites, and regular campsites with water and electricity. The sites including the picnic area sit on a bluff above the Lake and there are some steep trails that lead down to the water.
Eisenhower State Park is named for Dwight David Eiisenhower who was born nearby and was the 34th United States president. The Park opened in 1958 and as such some of the facilities are a little dated but clean and the Park is very well maintained. The main roads around the Park and through the campground are paved and the individual site parking pads are crushed stone.
On our last visit in July 2015, the Park had just reopened after some significant flooding on Lake Texoma. FM 1310 was still closed, Eisenhower Yacht Club was not accessible, and the swimming area and boat ramp were closed due to the high water. And instead of the normal beautiful blue lake, the water was a dirty brown! But all of that should change in a month or so.
