Overview

Burns Run East Campground is located on Lake Texoma in Oklahoma's Cross Timbers Region.

The lake is said to be the "Playground of the Southwest," where outdoor activities like fishing, boating, hiking and hunting abound.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on the southeastern shores of Lake Texoma. Post and blackjack oaks forest the rolling hills of the region. Deer, turkeys, bobcats, hawks, waterfowl and songbirds are abundant around the lake.

Recreation:

Lake Texoma is a large reservoir with an excellent fishery and many access points. Boating, swimming, water skiing, hunting, birding and relaxing on the sandy beaches are the typical pursuits of most visitors.

The lake is known as the "Striper Capital of the World," one of the few reservoirs in the nation where Striped bass reproduce naturally. Other popular species include largemouth and smallmouth bass, white bass, hybrid striped bass, white crappie, black crappie, channel catfish and blue catfish.

Also available is the scenic Cross Timbers hiking trail, a very popular trail that winds for 14 miles above the lake on rocky ledges and through blackjack woodland. Forty miles of equestrian trails surround the lake as well.

Burns Run East offers 53 campsites, 44 of which have electrical and water hookups. A large, day-use group picnic shelter with electricity is available as well.

Other amenities include flush and vault toilets, showers and drinking water. A dump station, two boat ramps, a dock, playground, and beach are located on-site. Restaurants and stores are available 1/2-mile from the campground.
