by




The passes will start at $10 for a one-day pass for a single vehicle. Vehicles with an Oklahoma or Oklahoma tribal license plate will receive a 20 percent discount, making their pass just $8 per vehicle for a single day.

Oklahoma residents age 62 and older and their spouses will receive a 100% discount on the pass. Honorably discharged veterans will also receive a 100% discount, and individuals certified by state or federal law as totally disabled and their spouses will receive a 50% discount. Discounts cannot be combined, and individuals’ eligibility must be verified by park staff.

Three-day, one-week and annual passes will also be available. The annual pass will work for all 22 parks. Its cost will be $75, with a discount rate of $60 available for vehicles with Oklahoma or Oklahoma tribal license plates. Buses will be assessed a $25 per day fee regardless of license plate origin.

Guests will have several ways to pay for parking, including:
• In advance online through a link from TravelOK.com.
• Upon arrival via any smartphone by texting PARK to 504504. Guests will be texted a link to make contactless payment via Apple Pay, Google Pay or any debit/credit card. For more information on text to pay, visit premiumparking.com/text-pay.
• Through the Premium Parking app, which is available as a free download for iPhone and Android devices. To get the app, visit premiumparking.com/mobile-parking.
• Via pay machines at park offices and at other locations around the participating parks. Machines will take credit/debit cards and cash but do not give change. Guests will need to enter their license plate number.

Lake Texoma Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 29)

GOOD. Water lightly stained; 84-87 degrees; 1.05 high. Striped bass and white bass are good on live bait and topwater baits when fish are near the surface. Diving birds are marking feeding schools on the surface throughout the lake. Use sonar to mark schools along the river channel and flats. Largemouth bass are good fishing jigs, Texas-rigged plastic worms, and crankbaits in 8-24’. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs by boathouses, marinas and brush piles in 15-25’. Catfish are good on cut bait, prepared bait, and live bait.
