More Info




Fort Washita was constructed in the 1800s as an armed post of the United States. The undertaking of Fort Washita was to guard the Chickasaw & Choctaw people from the Plains Indians. Fort Washita functioned through 1865 and stands currently as a historic site and gallery where guests can study what life was like previously and through the Civil War.

Fort Washita gives guests the prospect to discover the restored buildings, see Civil War reforms, and experience an annual Fur Trade Era Rendezvous, which takes guests on an expedition of the historical past through informative stations, narrations and more.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 22)

EXCELLENT. Water stained; 73 degrees; 2.41 feet above. Fishing is fun as it enters the pattern we have waited for! Striped bass are excellent chasing shad all over the lake. Target deeper water starting with topwater baits until the fish are stacked up, then switch to slabs. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
