Public Access Facilities
This area is experiencing a severe drought which can affect boat ramp access. When planning a trip, please contact the Waggoner Ranch for current ramp conditions.
Seven boat ramps can be reached from three toll gates around the lake. Gate entrance fees are $15 per person for a 3-day pass or $500 for an annual pass. Most ramps are not functional when the lake is three feet or more below normal elevation. The ramp at Moonshine gate is the best, usable at lower levels than the other ramps. All lake roads are unpaved, and no camping facilities are available. For more details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below.
