Lake Jacksonville is located 3 miles southwest of Jacksonville, Texas off US 79. It is the city's primary water source. In addition, it is a popular location for recreation and residences. It was created in 1957 and the city expected it to take years to fill with water, but, with an unusually rainy season, the lake reached full capacity in only a year.

To combat the spread of invasive zebra mussels, boaters and anglers in some North Texas and Central Texas counties are required to drain water from boats and on-board receptacles when leaving or approaching a public water body. Check to see if Cherokee county is on the list.
