Eisenhower State Park in Denison by Ian Aberle

Eisenhower State Park, with 423.1 acres, is located in Grayson County, northwest of Denison on the shores of Lake Texoma. It was acquired in 1954 by a Department of Army lease, which extends until 2004, and was opened to the public in 1958.

The park was named for the 34th U.S. president, Dwight David Eisenhower, as he was born nearby.
