TULE LAKE. Tule Lake, on North Tule Draw two miles northwest of Tulia in central Swisher County (at 34°34' N, 101°23' W), was impounded in the 1940s by a dam constructed under the auspices of the Panhandle Water Conservation Authority. The reservoir, now owned by the United States Bureau of Agricultural Economics, has a capacity of 500 acre-feet and is primarily used for soil and water conservation and as a recreational area. The Tule Lake Country Club and Girl Scout camp are located here.
