Caddo Lake is the only large reservoir in Texas that is natural. However, even it has been modified with a dam. There are a few smaller lakes that were formed within rivers that could be considered natural. There are about 200 lakes in Texas that impound over 5,000 acre-feet. There are about 7,000 reservoirs with a capacity of 10-acre feet or larger. Texas has about 80,000 miles of streams with over 11,000 named streams. That is a lot of potential waterbody records. roflmao

History. Scientists believe Caddo Lake formed when floodwater, blocked by massive log jams on the Red River, backed up into the Cypress Bayou watershed. Caddo Lake was artificially dammed in the early 1900s, when oil was found, and for flood control in 1914. A new dam replaced the old one in 1971.
