Lakes and Recreation

Lavon Lake is the jewel of the City of Lavon environs. The Lavon Lake Dam is located at river mile 55.9 on the East Fork of the Trinity River. Lavon Lake is approximately 21,400 acres in size.  Construction of the Lake began in January of 1948 and was completed six years later in March of 1954 . In 1962, Congressional approval was given to modify the project to increase storage for water supply because of the growing water supply need of the area.  This modification increased the conservation pool of Lavon Lake 20 vertical feet, bringing the normal pool elevation form 472.00 Mean Sea Level (MSL) to the current 492.00 MSL.  The dam is now 19,493 feet long (3.7 miles), which includes the levee, spillway, and dam, and is approximately 81’ above streambed.

The Mission of Lavon Lake is to supply water to the member cities of the North Texas Municipal Water District; to provide flood control to the Collin, Dallas and Rockwall County areas, and to offer some of the best fishing, camping and boating in Texas.
