On March 2, 1945, the U.S. Congress approved the River & Harbors Act of 1945 which, among many projects, provided for the construction of Benbrook Lake, Grapevine Lake, Lavon Lake and Ray Roberts Lake, as well as modifications to the existing Garza Dam for the construction of Lewisville Lake. Ray Roberts Dam, an earthen structure 141 feet high, is owned and operated by the United States Army Corps of Engineers.

Ray Roberts is also used for recreation and is home to the Ray Roberts Lake State Park.[1]

We're in northern Texas located about an hour north of Dallas - Ft Worth metroplex about 6 1/2 million people within an hour of us basically. This is fun hiking. It's just beautiful. It's amazing to be as close to the big city and you pull through the gate and it's quiet, it's just nice, nice place to stop. There's another one. For Warren Fortenberry a little fishing may be the perfect antidote for a long commute. As luck would have it Ray Roberts Lake State Park is right between where Warren works and lives. Nothing wrong with that. It's a good place to stop on the way home, waste a little time, I guess. If everybody could stop halfway home and go fishing, there'd probably be nicer people on the road. Maybe...I don't know. I enjoy it. The natural therapy comes in many forms at this park. It is a really beautiful and serene type setting. Well, it's usually serene. It really gives the visitor an opportunity to get away from the hassles of daily life and the traffic and get back to nature. The diversity of Ray Roberts Lake I think is what makes it so special. The variety of things to do or not do here regularly draws campers from DFW Outdoors. We are an outdoor adventure social events club based out of the Dallas - Ft. Worth area. We love to come to Lake Ray Roberts. It's one of our favorite places to come. We can hike and bike and camp here all in one weekend. We always like to look for a park that has extensive trails. It's an hour's drive. We can get out here and it's just great. This park is really a series of parks surrounding the 30,000 acre lake. Beyond the north and south units there is a full service marina, a lakeside lodge and restaurant, and a 10 mile greenbelt along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. If you're a horse person, this is a wonderful place to come. I've been riding here for about 10 years and the trails are beyond belief in their natural beauty. It's really an attraction and people actually move in this area now to have this park near them. Deb Trott is one of those people. She has moved just a few miles from Lake Ray Roberts. We spend a lot of time here, a lot of time, pretty much every weekend that I can. [music] It's just wonderful. One of the prettiest parks I've ever been to. It's a great place year round. It really is.
