Raymond Gary Lake Shoreline

Community in Choctaw County with Boat Ramps – Near Hugo, Oklahoma

Raymond Gary Lake in Choctaw County Oklahoma is the only lake of any size in the area where you can own the shore and live on the water.

Lakefront property where you can have a boat dock..there are boat ramps on the lake for your use also. 

There is one other very small lake in Choctaw County, Schooler Lake, but it is so small, it does not have boat ramps…

Raymond Gary Lake is very unique for our area being the only lake where your back yard ends in water and if you’ve built a dock, it ends with a dock out over the water.  

This lakefront community has approximately 10 mile of shoreline that is mostly privately owned.  There are about a dozen sub-divisions around the lake with varying covenants and deed restrictions on those properties. 


Each one of those sub-divisions will be a topic of an upcoming post, but today this post is to introduce you to the community as a whole.



  • Holiday Lake Estates,
  • Pauline Baily Survey,
  • Pauline Bailey Survey Lots,
  • Billy Bailey Survey,
  • The Point Addition,
  • Noble Acres,
  • George Caldwell Survey,
  • South Shore Acres,
  • South Shore Acres East Addition,
  • Lakeside
  • and in addition to that, there are several unplatted properties around the lake.


The deeded shoreline properties that border all around the lake are usually 0.5 acre or more.  Many properties already have a boat dock or fishing pier in place.  Property owners enjoy being able to fish for catfish, crappie, or bass, right from their back yard…or take the boat out for a spin and do a little fishing.

Raymond Gary Lake is a “no wake” lake.  Speed limit is officially set at 6 mph.  There are many different types of boats and different types of motors used on the lake.  Several residents that enjoy skiing, live on Raymond Gary Lake where they can live on the water, and then they travel to Hugo Reservoir or Pine Creek Lake to ski or participate in faster water sports.  Hugo Lake is about 15 minutes away and Pine Creek Lake about 45 minutes away from Raymond Gary Lake.

The various subdivisions around the lake are all within the city limits of Fort Towson, Oklahoma and enjoy paved streets along with city utilities.  Fort Towson is located on a four-lane highway, highway 70.
  The State Park is all lit up at Christmas time, there’s an annual Christmas Boat Parade and and a fireworks display on the Fourth of July every year.
