We’re spending a few days on Benbrook Lake, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood control lake southwest of Fort Worth, TX.
The lake was built after WWII and filled to capacity in a spring flood in 1957. The campground is full of beautiful big oak trees.
The lake has been low for a good while until major rain events last year. The tree next to our RV shows the level of that flood.
Even after 60 years underwater, some trees still have branches poking out of the wave and providing a nice perch for birds.
