Show/Hide

All normal LLELA facilities and activities are available as of noon on May 18!

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed the maintenance work at the outlet ahead of schedule, and we are now open for fishing, camping, and other activities as normal. However, the water level in the river is still low. Check the release rate at the Lewisville Dam before you come, if you are counting on water in the river. Normal flow is 120-250 cfs, anything less is pretty dry.

Habitats

LLELA is fortuitously located where the Blackland Prairies and the Eastern Cross Timbers meet, with the Elm Fork of the Trinity River and its associated riparian forest winding right through the middle of things. This diversity of habitats creates a profusion of wildlife. Mammals such as bobcats, white-tailed deer, and mink can be found, along with birds such as wild turkeys and painted buntings, a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians, and butterflies and other insects. These areas can be explored along LLELA's ever-growing trail system.
