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.

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!
