Lake Medina is a reservoir on the Medina River located 40 miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas in Bandera and Medina counties. It is operated by the Bexar / Medina / Atascosa County Agricultural District. Medina Dam was completed in 1913, creating the lake to supply irrigation water for local agricultural use, but it is now also used for recreation purposes. It is contained by the Medina Dam, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. At the time of the dam's construction, it was the largest concrete dam in the country and the fourth largest dam overall.
