Homes for Sale with Boat Docks in the DFW Metroplex
We recently were talking to a couple relocating to the Dallas Forth Worth Metroplex. They wanted to live on a lake but were surprised to find that many of our local lakes do not allow boat docks or lifts.
Most of our lakes were built and are maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers (COE) and the land surrounding these lakes are also owned by the government. While many homes are lake-front and have access to the water, the COE does not allow docks or lifts to be built. A few properties have boat docks that are grandfathered.
While many lakes do not allow docks, there are a number that do allow them. Wood County in east Texas has a series of lakes that are owned by the county. Boat docks and lifts can be built with a simple lease from the County. Lake Lewisville (just west of Frisco) has a public marina where boat docks can be leased.
