Cross Timbers State Park
Winter eagles are arriving, the fog from the lake in the mornings with them fishing is an awesome sight! Hike one of our trails, it's the perfect season with cooler temperatures and wonderful views. All shower houses are now closed for the season. Water is off to most campsites, frost free campsites in Osage Plains 1-8, and East Ramp Area 61, 63-64 will remain full hookups through the winter season. Water is available at the entrance to Toronto Point, and in the Mann's Cove campground. Electricity remains on throughout the year.
