You'll discover Lake Grapevine if you follow signs indicating 'marinas' along the Northwest Highway, running past the town of Grapevine.
Grapevine lake has 146 miles of shoreline, comprises 6,892 acres and has a maximum depth of 65 feet. The drop offs, underwater terrain and rocky shoreline attract large mouth bass.
At the dam near the water intake, white bass like to gather. Where the Twin Coves are formed and near the rock strewn shore, catfish and crapee can be found. However, fishing is not the only draw.
Water and recreational sports such as water-skiing, sailboating, kayaking, jet skiing and wind surfing are popular during the warmer months. There is a nearby campground (Vineyards) and people often stop by for family picnics. Free maps can be picked up either at the park or at the US Army Corps of Engineers office at 110 Fairway Dr. Grapevine.
Grapevine lake is located on Denton Creek, which is a tributary of the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Tarrant and Denton Counties. It is north of the city of Grapevine.
