Welcome to Denison

  • TX travel information center - located on hwy 75 north of Denison. Great for pamphlets, information, and kid fun. Most workers aren't real kid friendly.
  • Randel lake - take hwy 75 north watch for signs. This is the main source for Denison's water supply.
  • Eisenhower State Park- hwy 75 north exit 72 turn left and follow signs. Hiking, camping, fishing, programs, etc. Admission fee
  • Carpenters bluff bridge – Main Street, go east watch for signs. Old one lane
    bridge crossing red river.
  • Waterloo park - playground, hiking/mountain bike trail, duck feeding, fishing
  • Eisenhower birthplace - admission fee
  • Katy Depot- railroad museum, old train, radio station, etc.
  • Historic driving tour - directions can be gotten at the Chamber of Commerce on Woodard.
  • Frontier village – Loy Lake Road off hwy 75. Historic village with museum. Museum is free, admission fee to village. Now has HUGE bust sculpture of President Eisenhower out front that can be seen from the hwy. Drive around behind frontier village into the park area to see a old very large tower (used to be a water tank).
  • Park with ruin type pillars - north side of the old TMC. Park in parking lot
    across the street from the old TMC and walk into the park on the north east
    section of the parking lot. There is a pavilion type area back there that has
    columns made from the old Denison railroad bridges, with a brick floor made of
    the old hand made bricks that used to line Denison streets. There is a plaque
    that tells the history of it all. Take your camera! This place makes awesome
