LAKE KEMP. Lake Kemp, eight miles north of Seymour, is formed by the Wichita River, which is dammed in north central Baylor County (at 33°45' N, 99°09' W). The lake is used for irrigation and at times has served as a water supply for Wichita Falls. Its elevation is 1,142 feet above sea level, and the local deep loamy soil supports grasses and wild upland plants. There are several parks and more than 100 miles of shoreline that furnish a variety of recreation opportunities.
