Don’t tell that to the Dallas Rowing Club, the kayakers on the Grapevine Lake Paddling Trail or the water skiers on Lewisville Lake. While it’s true that Texas has few natural lakes (among them being Caddo Lake, which we share with Louisiana), visitors who fly into Dallas can observe numerous streams, creeks and lakes across our landscape. In fact, there are more than a dozen lakes and reservoirs in North Texas, most of which allow boating, fishing and other water sports. Major lakes – including Lake Ray Roberts, White Rock Lake and Lewisville Lake – offer amenities like marinas, restaurants, boat rentals and boat launches. Combine beach access and waterfront dining at Lake Ray Hubbard, and you’ll see that there’s more to Dallas’ topography than just land.
