Lake Leon

Lake Leon, also known as Leon Reservoir, is formed by a dam on the Leon River five miles southeast of Eastland in Eastland County (at 32°22' N, 98°41' W). It encompasses 1,590 acres. On its shores are the Lone Cedar Country Club and the Providence Cemetery. Boating and fishing are popular pastimes on the reservoir. The spillway stands at 1,375 feet above sea level. The local deep loamy soils support a variety of tall grasses.
