Heads Up: July 14th, Flooding Continues
The good news is that Lake Texoma crested on July 11th (623.59 MSL) and is now on the way down. The bad news it is going down very slowly and still has almost 3 feet to drop before Wildlife Drive will no longer be flooded (620 MSL). As the water recedes you may park near the gate and walk or bike in, but please do not block the gate. The roads will be repaired and opened as soon as possible.
The Lotus Flowers are in bloom!
Meadow Pond is almost completely covered with them. It is worth the four mile (r.t.) hike along Meadow Pond Trail to see them. Due to the flood, you must access the trail via Highway 82: turn North onto Old Southmayd Road, follow signs to the visitor center about 4 miles to the trailhead. Refuge lands are open from sunrise to sunset.
Admission to the refuge, parking and events are free of charge.
