SHERWOOD SHORES, TEXAS (Burnet County). The name Sherwood Shores applies to at least two shoreline developments along the Highland Lakes region in western Burnet County. One development, often referred to as Sherwood Shores III, is located about a mile downstream from Roy Inks Dam and ten miles southwest of Burnet. The other development is located farther downstream on Lake Lyndon B. Johnson, about fourteen miles southwest of Burnet. Settlement began around the early 1960s, when residents chartered a Baptist church. By the early 1970s highway maps showed Sherwood Shores in two locations, and residents had organized an Assembly of God church and a Seventh Day Adventist church. The first population statistics, apparently for both communities combined, were given in 2000, when the census reported 870 residents.
