Love Valley Wildlife Management Area
Located on 7,746 sprawling acres in south-central and eastern Love County, the Love Valley Wildlife Management Area offers a serene escape for anyone who enjoys spending time in the outdoors. Predominately filled with post oak-blackjack timber and bottom land hardwoods, this peaceful area is located next to the Red River on the Oklahoma-Texas border. Game species include quail, deer, turkey, rabbit, doves, waterfowl and squirrels. In addition, fishing opportunities exist at Lake Texoma, which borders the northernmost section of the WMA. Those looking for remote camping will find it, as several undesignated primitive camping areas are offered on the area. While visiting in the cold weather months, keep your eyes peeled for Bald Eagles that spend the winter within the wildlife management area.
