Joe Pool Lake is one of the newest bodies of water in the metroplex area. It offers a wide range of recreation from boating, fishing, skiing, fishing, etc.... There are camp grounds in the area. There is also a marina on the lake with a restaurant, fishing barge etc...

Grew up on a lake in northeastern Oklahoma, actually on an island in the lake , so I guess I was an islander and I have the tendency to compare and realize it isn't fair but I am predjudice and can not help it...
