Recreation at Benbrook Lake

Benbrook Lake offers some of the finest public parks in or near Fort Worth.

Available facilities include camping, picnicking and swimming, reserveable group facilities, boat launching, and hiking and horseback riding trails.

All land around the lake is open to pedestrian use. The one and one-half mile long top of dam is popular for joggers and bicyclists, but walking on the grassy downstream slope of the embankment of the dam is not allowed. Birdwatching, hiking, bicycling and fishing are popular activities at Benbrook Lake. Hunting in season is also allowed with a permit from the Corps' office, but no other shooting of any type of firearms is allowed at any time. Fireworks are not permitted anywhere on the lake. Other Special Events may be allowed with permission from the Lake Office.
