About: Preston Bend Campground is located on Lake Texoma, in the Cross Timbers region of Texas. The lake is thought to be the "Playground of the Southwest," where outdoor activities like fishing, boating, hiking, and hunting abound.
The campground is situated on the Texas side of Lake Texoma. Post and blackjack oaks forest the rolling hills of the region. Deer, turkeys, bobcats, hawks, waterfowl, and songbirds are abundant around the lake.
Lake Texoma is a large reservoir with an excellent fishery and many access points. Boating, swimming, water skiing, hunting, birding, and relaxing on the sandy beaches are the typical pursuits of most visitors.
The lake is known as the "Striper Capital of the World," one of the few reservoirs in the nation where striped bass reproduce naturally. Other popular species include largemouth and smallmouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, white crappie, black crappie, channel catfish, and blue catfish.
Also available is the scenic Cross Timbers hiking trail, a very popular trail that winds for 14 miles above the lake on rocky ledges and through blackjack woodland. Forty miles of equestrian trails surround the lake as well.
Directions: From Pottsboro, TX, travel 9 miles north on Hwy 120. Exit right at the campground entrance sign.
