About Westlake Day Use


Westlake features four group shelters on Lewisville Lake, where visitors can spend a day picnicking or boating on the almost 30,000-acre reservoir, just outside the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The lake rests above an archeological site where prehistoric remains have been found. It is believed these early humans inhabited the area as far back as 12,000 B.C., making this one of the oldest human-inhabited sites in the Southwest United States and Mexico.


The lake hosts a number of fishing tournaments each year, drawing anglers from all over to try for trophy-sized bass.

Warm water temperatures offer ideal conditions for water sports including boating and jet skiing.


Each of the open-sided pavilions come with a large grill and water, and are all within walking distance to a restroom. Blackjack Oak is lakeside with large shade trees. This pavilion seats 50-75 people and has electric hookups.(CLOSED) Bur Oak seats 100-150 people and has its own parking lot. Cottonwood is close to the shoreline, has electric hookups and seats 100-150 people. Green Ash sits in a large, open field and offers electric hookups. It seats 75-100 people.

Natural Features

The day-use area sits on the western banks of Lewisville Lake. The lake stems from the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in northern Texas and generally has low visibility, but plenty of surface acres for boating and fishing.

Nearby Attractions

Horseback riding and golfing can be found nearby. The active city of Dallas is about 40 minutes away.
