Enjoying the great outdoors is a wonderful experience - from camping, fishing, hunting, and taking time with family & friends! Growing up in my family included all these outdoor opportunities! The time bonding, learning, and experiencing the outdoor life are now cherished memories, never forgotten as they will always hold a special part in my life!




Lake Texoma TX OK: Fourth of July Busiest Boating Weekend



The 4th of July is the busiest boating weekend on the waters across Oklahoma and Texas. Families gather in celebration of the holiday and of the summer season. Thousands of people will be visiting the lake for longer stays.



Safe & Smart Boating



Safe and smart boating practices are encouraged during this time as well as all other times of being on the waters. Water authorities encourage all boaters and their riders to follow the water rules. Being safe and smart is one of the best ways to ensure the safety of all. And, don’t forget to wear life jackets while on the lake.



Sober Boating



With the celebration of the Fourth of July comes an increased intake of alcohol for some families. Sober boating is a must for increased safety. Alcohol is the leading fatality in boating accidents. Please, play it sober and be safe. Also, play close attention to others on the lake this holiday season.



Be Aware of Changing Conditions



Always be aware of changing conditions while having fun on the lake. Have a check on the weather conditions as they can rapidly change. Watch for upcoming storms, and definitely be aware of heat indices. Know the symptoms of heat stroke and be prepared to act accordingly.



Enjoy a Safe Celebration



Enjoy a safe celebration this holiday weekend on the waters. It is a wonderful time to celebrate freedom, family and friends. Take time to enjoy the fireworks displays in the immediate area.



Happy Safe, Smart, and Sober Boating this Holiday Weekend!
