Welcome to Benbrook Lake

The 'bubblers' near the dam are at this time the responsibility of the Tarrant Regional Water District, the agency that installed them originally. Please call TRWD at 817-626-2888 with any questions.

The website has an entirely new look with features including simplified search capabilities, enhanced content and streamlined Google maps.  Visitors to the website can now do much more than make reservations for camping, tours and tickets at federal facilities.  The Corps has almost 30,000 reservable campsites in and there is a wealth of information about Corps water resources projects.  More details on the new features added to the website may be found under the “New Look! New Features!” Tab located at the top right hand corner of home page.  We hope you take some time to explore the new website, and better yet, we hope you find some great new places to get out and Explore Your America!

During any burn ban for Tarrant County, set by the County Fire Marshal, open fires are not allowed in cookers and firerings. Charcoal and gas grills may be used, but only if they can be immediately covered to extinguish the fire. Current Burn Ban information can be found at here.

According to the Texas Transportation Code, Golf Carts are not allowed to be operated on Public Roadways at Corps of Engineers Projects.
