South Shore Acres Addition Raymond Gary Lake

Waterfront Property in South Shore Acres Addition Raymond Gary Lake, Fort Towson,  Hugo Oklahoma, Paris Texas

The South Shore Acres Addition is located in the Southwest area of Lake Raymond Gary and runs east along Spillway Road (so named on the plat).  Spillway Road has been included in the State Highway 209 addresses for a 911 address though.  So you may find South Shore Acres on either road depending upon which map you are looking at.  In fact, the last Google map that I looked at did not have a name for the road to South Shore Acres. 

South Shore Acres has large trees and varying slopes.  Most lots have a very gentle

slope at the waters edge.  South Shore Acres is across the channel from George Caldwell Addition and The Pauline Bailey Survey Addition. The black clay soil in South Shore Acres is mostly a Hollywood-Swink soil with Limestone outcroppings.  Hollywood-Swink is a high shrink/swell soil.  You will want to consider that when choosing home foundation types, etc.

South Shore Acres, being in the community of Lake Raymond Gary, is a “no wake” addition since Raymond Gary Lake, an Oklahoma Department of Wildlife lake, is a “no wake” lake through-out.  To ski, it’s a very short drive to Hugo Lake on the east side of Hugo, Oklahoma.

Even though Fort Towson only has a population of about 600 people , it’s only about a 15 minute drive to Hugo, Oklahoma for picking up the basics at the grocery store (Wal-Mart and Save-A-Lot)  or a little longer drive to Paris, Texas (Just about anything that you could be looking for).  Hugo has a population of about 5400 and Paris, Texas has a population of about 26,000.

City utilities include a pressurized sewer system, city water, and garbage collection.  Electrical service is supplied by either AEP-PSO, or by Choctaw Electric Co-op


Lee’s Kitchen is about 5 minutes away and The Corner Store about the same. Milner’s Hardware is about 10 minutes in Valliant, Oklahoma (74764).

Life in South Shore Acres is a little slower paced than a lot of places.  There is no home owners association in South Shore Acres.  There is a voluntary lake association at Lake Raymond Gary.  The Lake Association is involved in decorating the Raymond Gary State Park at Christmas time with lights in the trees along the shore.  A Decorated Boat Parade around the lake.  And in a fireworks display on the fourth of July. 

To get to South Shore Acres, take highway 109 on the west side of Fort Towson south for 1 1/2 miles which is the first intersection to the west.  Go west 3/4 of a mile and the lake is on your right.  Interested in living in South Shore Acres on Raymond Gary Lake?  Call me Judi Barrett, Broker – Integrity Real Estate Services, Idabel, OK 74745.
