The nearby Lake o’ the Pines is just as charming as its name implies. This popular destination is particularly known for its fishing, with bass, catfish and crappie the main biters. Recreational boating is another common activity, especially water skiing, sailing, or relaxing on pontoon boats, party boats, and “floating cabins,” all available at several lakeside marinas.
Campers also flock to Lake o’ the Pines, pitching tents and parking RVs at one of the four U.S. Army Corps of Engineer parks or privately owned campgrounds. Other options include guest houses, cabins, or motels. For more information about lake services, contact the local chamber of commerce at www.lakeothepines.com  or 903/755-2597
