Sand Lake is a community just north of State Highway 34 and twelve miles northeast of Ennis in eastern Ellis County. Between 1923 and 1931 Sand Lake had a general store and a post office. During the 1930s the town also had a school and a closely settled area of dwellings. Twenty-five residents were reported at Sand Lake in 1947, after which no census figures were available. A highway map from the 1980s still identified Sand Lake as a community.
