  • I live near the Refuge and hike/explore it often. My two retrievers love it. The water's edge at Lake Texoma is easy access at several points. The historical Red River forms the lake behind the Dennison Dam. The Refuge management has maintained several walking paths of varying lengths up two 3 miles and more. Occasional flooding occurs when heavy rains blanket the huge watershed. The flood levels and water backups are amazing. The power of water never ceases to amaze me. To see any wildlife other than migratory bird flocks, you have to walk the trails at sunset when the fauna become active. There is just enough car traffic during the day to keep the animals bashful. Learn your animal poop and paw prints. By these you will know them.
  • It is a nice place but as a resident of Grayson county you should be able to get a permit to fish at night and if that's not the case and it isn't, gates should be locked at night.
  • Really love the Auto trail for it is convenient. Besides wild life, you can also have a close look at oil pump machines. Visiting center is a great help.
  • Driving through iand bird watching is easy. Hiking trails are available for a more up-close exploration.
  • Really neat wildlife refuge. The butterfly garden is quite beautiful and the trails are well maintained.
