About Enders Lake
Enders Reservoir is a combination of recreational and wildlife lands, with the additional dedication of a portion of the area as a wildlife refuge in the fall and winter. Because of its refuge status, the recreational facilities have not been quite as extensively developed by the Game and Parks Commission as are the other three lakes in the Southwest complex.
The dam itself is a homogeneous, earth-filled structure, 134 feet high and 2,603 feet long. It is 30 feet wide at the top and a maximum of 670 feet at the base. It forms a 1,707-acre lake at top conservation pool, with 26 miles of shoreline. It stores water to irrigate some 21,000 acres of land. Rocky outcroppings along the south shore and in the northwest corner of the lake offer some spectacular views of the reservoir.
