The Great Outdoors

Lake Texoma was formed by damming the Red River, making its 89,000-acre surface area one of the largest in the United States. Attracting millions of visitors a year, the lake beckons Denison campers to North Texas with lots of activities on and off the water. Board a water taxi to explore the islands, or enjoy a slower float on a pontoon for a look around the shorelines.Themed cruises abound on Lake Texoma, like an eagle watching cruise in the winter, a dinner cruise as you take in a dramatic sunset, or a fall foliage cruise to admire the season's brilliant colors. If you want to sink a line for giant striped bass, Lake Texoma is the Striper Capital of the region, so look no further for a rod-bending adventure.For a good workout on the trails, take advantage of Eisenhower State Park's trails on foot or bicycle. Borrow fishing gear on-site and drop a line on Lake Texoma from fishing piers or from the shoreline. If you like beachcombing, the lake was once part of an ancient ocean, so you might stumble into fossils in the area. (Take nothing but pictures.) Also keep an eye out for watchable wildlife like armadillos, foxes, and coyotes. Bald eagles winter here along with pelicans, loons, and other waterfowl.For an avian spectacle worth a day trip, take your Denison rental RV to the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge on the Texas side of the Red River. Witness mass migrations in the spring and fall, when white pelicans descend on the refuge by the thousands. Snow geese make an equally grand entrance, and sometimes, as many as 10,000 geese spend the entire winter in the refuge.

Exploring the Area

Thanks to Texoma's location along the alluvial plains of the Red River and its warm summers and cold winters, the area is one of the largest grape-growing regions in Texas. Rent a camper near Denison Damsite and follow the Munson Wine Trail to sample some of the region's premium white wine from Blanc du Bois grapes that grow well in the sandy loam of Texoma. Drop by at the Munson Viticulture & Encology Center in Denison to see an extensive wine laboratory, an instructional winery, and memorabilia from Thomas Munson, who was thought to have saved the French wine industry.On a historical note, Denison is the birthplace of the 34th president of the United States. At the Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Park right in the heart of the town, see the modest house where Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower was born in 1890, and browse the visitor center to learn more about his working-class background and political achievements. Also in Denison, the Perrin Air Force Base Historical Museum preserves the legacy of this military installation active from WWII through to the Vietnam War era.In nearby Sherman, the seat of Grayson County, you'll find several museums that could easily fill hours of sightseeing. The music-minded may want to visit the Jazz Museum, where artifacts and collections illustrate the life and music of jazz greats from the past. At the Outlaw Trails Museum, exhibits are not only limited to outlaw memorabilia but also include wartime articles, antiques, and Native American items with historic value. For a better understanding of Grayson County and the wider North Texas region, visit the Sherman Museum to view their collection of items with historic relevance to the area.Waterfront camping near Denison puts you within stone's throw of abundant fishing and wildlife watching opportunities and the cosmopolitan glitter of Dallas.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
