We are glad to have you visit our community. West Tawakoni is surrounded on three sides by Lake Tawakoni. We pride ourselves as a recreational area for visitors and as home to many folks who work in Dallas, Mesquite, Garland and other suburbs of the Metroplex. We are in south Hunt County and offer the best of "small town living". We are part of Quinlan Independent School District, offering excellent educational opportunities.
Our City Memorial Park offers thousands of feet of shoreline to offer you a great camping, fishing, boating and play area. You can bring you own camper or rent one of ours to get the full benefit of camping and enjoying the outdoors. We have pavilions available to rent for your picnics and family outings.
Hwy 276 separates the North part of town from the South. Lake Tawakoni holds both State and National records for catfish, however it is also home to ample stripers, crappie and hybrids. Several RV parks afford rental spaces for more permanent visitors.
Greenville is 20 miles to our North. Dallas is 45 miles to our West. Terrell is 20 miles to our South. So whatever your needs or whatever your destination. take time to visit West Tawakoni. We will be waiting for you.

Persons having interests in Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork Reservoir are hereby advised that on Monday, October 21, 2013, the General Manager of the Sabine River Authority of Texas (SRA) initiated Stage 1 of the SRA Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan for Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork Reservoir. Mild Water Shortage Conditions (Stage 1) exist in the service areas of Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork when SRA's portion of the combined storage of Lake Tawakoni and Lake Fork falls to and remains at or below 65% for fourteen consecutive days.
During a mild water shortage condition, SRA encourages voluntary water use reductions. Each customer entity in turn will follow its individual measures for mild water shortage conditions.
For more information please visit the SRA website.
Note: The City of West Tawakoni's drought contingency plan is the same as the SRA's. Voluntary water use reductions are encouraged.
We would like to encourage you to support the students in our community who need your charitable contribution.
The Clothe the Kids program is hoping to make the lives of QISD children a little more comfortable, All funds raised will go to clothe QISD students! Children are identified through teachers, counselors, and staff. In December, children will receive the opportunity to spend $50 on new clothes. They will be accompanied by parents and a shopping volunteer. Last year, more than 150 QISD students were clothes because of wonderful donations like yours! After shopping many students changed into their new clothes, wore them around the store and were excited to have clothes and shoes that fit. Children smiled as they were able to choose their first new coat.
It takes the efforts of our community to make this project a success. It is the goal of the program to clothe the children in our community that are in need. Please support the students in this community by making your donation today. It only takes $50 to clothe one students. How many children can you help to clothe? Please make checks payable to Clothe the Kids. You can send your checks to Clothe the Kids at P.O. Box 2036, Quinlan, Texas 75474 or to Butler Intermediate School at 410 Clardy, Quinlan, Texas 75474.
Many thanks for your support.
