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.



The Cicada Pavilion is available whenever it is not being used for another activity. It can also be reserved for use by groups by contacting 972.219.3550 or There is a $25 fee for reserving the Pavilion.

Picnic tables in other locations at LLELA are primarily for use by visiting groups but can be used for small single-family picnic lunches. Picnickers are expected to pack out all trash that they pack in. There is a dumpster near the river and also in the Pavilion parking lot for trash disposal. Grills and fires are not allowed outside of rented camp sites without prior permission.
