Vacation goals vary from person to person, depending on the destination and what kinds of people make up the travel group. For adults, vacations often mean relaxing, but for children, special trips are often synonymous with jam-packed days of fun. Here at Tanglewood Resort on Lake Texoma, you can get the best of both worlds. These kid friendly activities within the resort are a surefire way to release your kids’ pent-up energy, a few dozen smiles, and create memories that will last forever at Tanglewood Resort. 


  • Ping pong is an easy, yet fun way to compete with your kids, whether you let double-bounces slide or you’re a stickler for the rules. Hopefully, you’ll be keeping your kids on their toes instead of vice versa. 
  • Horseshoes is a more sophisticated, perfect before-dinner game to kill time as you wait to leave for a restaurant in Texoma. 
  • On a rainy day, fun indoor games for kids are vital for entertainment, and that’s why we have board games available for your usage when your day has been rained out. 


  • If you have a bigger group of people, get together 12 people and rally up a game of sand volleyball. 
  • Shoot your shot on the basketball court; first one to H-O-R-S-E loses! 
  • Although the sun is down, enjoy the evening warmth on our lighted tennis courts. Or, opt for pickleball. The game is similar to tennis but is more accurately as a cross between badminton and ping pong. 

Outdoor Activities 

  • Don’t quite have the energy to pack up your whole family for Lake Texoma? Surprise your kiddos with a trip to our three on-site pools. That way, you don’t have to worry about the sand and the waves, although you’ll still soak up the Texas sun either way. 
  • If your kids are nature-inclined, take them out to the hiking trails, or sign up for a guided tour of the protected wildlife here in Texoma.
