Welcome to Benbrook Lake

Camping, fishing, hunting, boating, and hiking are just the beginning of the activities available in the parks and other public lands of Benbrook Lake. Use the navigation menu on the left to see all the great information on the site, or scroll down for important current information. General information about the lake can be found by clicking here. 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.
