Joe Pool Lake is a 7,400-acre impoundment located in the southern portion of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Camping, fishing, boating, and hiking are just the beginning of the activities available in the parks and other public lands. There are four developed parks at Joe Pool Lake: Britton Park, Cedar Hill State Park, Loyd Park, and Lynn Creek Park.
Joe Pool lake is mostly fed by Mountain Creek and Walnut Creek and drains north into Mountain Creek leading into Mountain Creek Lake. Joe Pool lake impounds water in two arms formed by Mountain Creek and Walnut Creek. There are 64 miles of shoreline at normal conservation pool. Trees and fences were mostly cleared in the main body of the lake. However in the upper branches of the lake, the trees were left for fish habitat.
