North Texas

Lewisville Lake

Lake Lewisville is a reservoir located in North Texas (USA) on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Denton County near Lewisville. Originally engineered in 1927 as Lake Dallas, the reservoir was expanded in the 1940s and 50s and renamed Lewisville Lake. It was built for flood control purposes and to serve as a water source for Dallas and its suburbs, but residents also use it for recreational purposes.

The lake is one of the largest in north Texas spanning 29,000 acres with 233 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 67 feet. This recreational lake is great for fishing, skiing, swimming, relaxing, and recreational boating. There are numerous parks located around the lake and there are plenty of nice beaches, campgrounds, hiking and biking trails, golf courses, and other outdoor activities.
