Lake Meredith, for some, was a place once filled with memories but now it's filled with not much water as the drought in our area continues. The area's largest lake is located 50 miles northeast of Amarillo.The water levels at Lake Meredith, according to the National Weather Service in Amarillo, hit record low depth readings. As the depth of the water continues to decline so does the level of activity on the lake, hurting the economy of the lake's community. While lake levels have dropped, outstanding hiking and four-wheeling are available.
