Lewisville Lake is a reservoir located in North Texas (USA) near the city of Lewisville on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in Denton County. The lake is primarily used recreationally for boating and watercraft, however, it was built for flood control purposes and to serve as a water source for Dallas and its suburbs.

Lewisville Lake (formerly known as Gaza-Little Elm Reservoir) has many facilities for overnight camping and fishing. There are also a few areas for public hunting of water fowl and feral hogs (archery only).

During the summer months, the lake can become extremely crowded. For a number of years Lewisville Lake was ranked the most dangerous lake in Texas due to the number of accidents and fatalities which occurred. Most of the fatalities were from individuals enjoying the day at the many parks around the lake and going too far out in the water. The number of actual boating accidents on the lake is fairly low. Adding to the danger for boats and other recreational watercraft, the lake contains numerous shallow areas with exposed and submerged trunks and other water hazards.

On the lake, there are five marinas: Eagle Point Marina, Pier 121, Cottonwood Creek Marina, Dallas Cornthian Yacht Club, and Lakeview Marina. and two restaurant/bars - Sneaky Pete's and Charlie's. Charlie's is more of a seasonal place, closed from January through early March.
Party Cove located near the old dam is home to weekend revelers.
