The difference Between Richland Chambers and every other Texas Lake10/3/2016
People come to Richland Chambers Lake all the time and ask the same question, "Why aren't there more homes and people out here?
After being out here for more than 8 years now and immersing ourselves, our business and daily lives into all things Richland Chambers I have a much better grip on the answer.
Part of the reason is our 'out in the country' location. The lake is about 15 miles South East of Corsicana, a small town of about 25,000 people. (Take US 287 southeast towards Palestine off of I45 about 15 miles to find the lake.) Corsicana is the largest town around and has the basics. Downtown Fairfield is 18 miles from the damn and Palestine is about 40 minutes or so on down 287. Athens is not far to the east and lots of little towns around. We're an hour+ southeast of Dallas and an hour and 1/2 a half solid to DFW airport. Not too far to get your big city fix.
But, the biggest reason sometimes you feel like you have the place to yourself out here is:
The Richland Chambers Lake Area Improvement Zoning Ordinance.
In the late 80's the Texas State legislature recognized the economic significance that a lake could have upon a community. Often substantial, but sometimes not so great or enduring. So in 1987, they passed a law that provided for zoning on lakes completed after 1985. Impounded in 1989 Richland Chambers was only lake to which that statute applied. If you're so inclined check out (sections 231.071-231.083 of the Local Government Code).
Here is a link to the ordinance on the State of Texas website:
The Ordinance covers the Navarro County portion of the lake which is by far the lion's share of the shoreline. Just the fact a zoning ordinance is in place has controlled the growth around the lake. Along the shoreline there are a series of nice neighborhoods and a lot of beautiful scenery. Commercial development is very limited, there are only a few public access boat ramps and there are no overnight parks apart from the marinas.
Speaking of marinas there are 4. Oak Cove Marina and Northshore Marina are centrally located. Sunset Cove Marina is north on the Chambers Arm and Fisherman's Cove Marina is on the south side down by the damn.
The only other commercial operation on the lake is Fisherman's Cove Lodge located off of FM 309 south of US 287. They offer guided fishing and hunting trips, cabins and breakfast.
So the long and short of it is that the Zoning Ordinance has allowed Richland Chambers to become a very peaceful, quiet, uncrowded paradise.
So get here as soon as you can, it won't always be this way

Julie, Hope and I attended the Mid-Summer Awards Celebration for RE/MAX of Texas last Wednesday afternoon in Las Colinas at The Ranch. This is very cool place by the way. I was probably the only person in the place with flip flops on. After initial surprise and some funny expressions the goal remains intact. Today is easy we are going to go meet some folks out on the lake, look at some property and take some pics and videos. This can all be accomplished while working on the pedriatorial tan. Life is good...

Sunday Sundown on Richland Chambers6/4/2012
For anyone who has not been on the lake it is 44,000 acres of water with more than 330 miles of shoreline and the scenery is breathtaking (especially the sundowns). Richland Chambers is at full pool and with this much water this lake is never crowded. There are lots of good people around the lake and thanks to a certain friend in Chambers Point who supplied us with refreshments from his boathouse :)
