General Information

Description - The sites listed here range from small natural lakes to huge man-made reservoirs. These lakes and reservoirs are scattered throughout Texas.

Attractions - Many of these reservoirs include state parks. Some of them make up wildlife refuges. Most of the lakes and reservoirs listed offer developed recreation attractions.

Recreation - The lakes and reservoirs in Texas offer excellent water based recreation activities including fishing, boating, water skiing, sailing, operating personal watercraft, and beach activities. Many of the lakes offer adjacent campgrounds, picnic areas and trails.

Climate - Texas' climate is primarily hot and humid. Western Texas receives very little rainfall with the exception of the higher elevations. This is the driest area of the state having a relative humidity of 50 percent and an annual rainfall average of eight inches.

Northern Texas is infamous for its quickly changing weather. This is the area of the state that receives remarkable tornadoes and hailstorms. This is also the only region of the state to accumulate snow. An average of 15 inches falls each year along with 20 inches of rain.

Eastern Texas experiences hot and humid summers. Temperatures in the metro areas of Fort Worth and Dallas often reach 100 degrees in July and August. This makes for a dangerously high heat and uncomfortable for traveling. Winters are pleasant in this region, where the temperatures rarely dip below 32 degrees. Average rainfall in eastern Texas reaches 25 inches or more.

Location - Although Lakes and Reservoirs in Texas are somewhat concentrated in the eastern half of the state there are some large reservoirs that do exist in the western half of the state. Maps and directions to each lake or reservoir are included with the descriptions of each location.
