Description:
Trinity and Lewiston Lakes is where water oriented sports such as fishing, water-skiing and houseboating dominate the recreation spotlight. For the adventurous, however, there are hundreds of other activities, such as; wildlife viewing, hiking, hunting, automobile touring, photography, and picnicking.

Trinity Lake was formed with the completion of Trinity Dam in 1961 and was filed completely by 1963. It has a 145 mile shoreline and is about 20 miles long.

The Stuart Fork Arm is the hub of most of the activity on the lake. It extends to the west and is fed by the Stuart Fork and the East Fork of the Stuart Fork of the Trinity River. Numerous campgrounds, picnic areas, beaches, boat ramps, resorts, and marinas line its shores.

The Main Arm of the lake stretches from the dam north for about 12 miles. Here you can explore secluded, tree lined, coves or spend a quiet night at a boat-in-campground.

Lodging and other accommodations on the main arm range from cabins to Forest Service Campgrounds.

The North Lake Area is quieter and more relaxed but provides a variety of services, supplies, facilities and recreation activities. It offers public campgrounds and a wide open expanse of water excellent for water-skiing. Also available are the commercial services of Trinity Center, including a cabin/RV resort, an airport, and a marina with a public ramp and boat rentals.

Lewiston Lake is just downstream from Trinity Dam. It is 5 miles long with a rich and diverse 15 mile shoreline. Always kept at full capacity, the water here is much colder than in Trinity Lake. Because of the narrow width of the lake, the need for boater safety, and to ensure a quality fishing experience, the speed limit for boating is 10 miles per hour. Marshy areas near the center of the lake provide for excellent wildlife and bird watching opportunities.
