Belton Lake is located on the Leon River in the Brazos River basin in Texas. Belton Dam and the lake are both managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The reservoir was impounded in 1954 and provides flood control, drinking water, and is a popular recreational destination. Fishing is a popular activity among many lake goers.

The lake has been stocked with varying species of fish including largemouth bass, white bass, smallmouth bass, hybrid striped bass, catfish, sunfish, bluegill, crappie, longnose gar and alligator.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers also maintains recreational facilities at the lake, including five parks, Westcliff Park, Cedar Ridge Park, Winkler Park, Live Oak Ridge Park, and White Flint Park. Boating and swimming are also popular activities. Camp Kachina, a girl scout's camp is also on the shores of the lake.
