Lake Tawakoni is known as the Catfish Capital of Texas due to the popularity of fishing for catfish on the lake.
Lake Tawakoni State Park is a popular area for both camping and for day-use. There are beautiful campsites and trails throughout the park. There is a very nice swim beach and a fishing pond within the park as well.
Several full service marinas are available on Lake Tawakoni. These marinas handle boat slip rentals, boat launch, cabin rentals, RV camping and other services.
