• River: Trinity River
• Surface Area: 7,276 Acres
Grapevine Lake is a freshwater lake located in the north Texas area. It was impounded in 1952 by the US Army Corps of Engineers when they dammed Denton Creek. The lake's primary purposes are flood control and to act as a water reservoir, but it also functions as a recreation and natural land area. The Grapevine Dam and Reservoir project was initiated in January 1948; the project was completed in June 1952.

Numerous parks surround the lake with 4 walking trails of all different lengths. The lake also has site camping, RV parking, and cabins. There are three marinas located on the lake, along with ten boat ramps, to provide access to the water. Only two of the boat ramps are controlled by the Corps of Engineers and have free access.

The lake is home to a number of fish species, including largemouth bass, spotted bass, white bass, white crappie, and channel catfish. Public hunting is allowed in the Trophy Club Park area, located at the north-west end of the lake. Waterfowl and small game hunting, as well as bow hunting of feral hogs and deer, is allowed with a permit.
