This lake was slightly above average. It was extremely crowded on the weekends which made wake boarding nearly impossible. The houses on the lake were beautiful on both the very north and south ends.

Lake LBJ is a beautiful, large, constant level lake along the chain of lakes made up by dams along the Texas Colorado River. You have Lake Buchanan at the north, then Inks Lake, then Lake LBJ, then Lake Marble Falls, then Lake Travis, then Lake Austin and then Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin. These lakes make up what is known as the Highland Lakes.

Lake LBJ is about 27 miles long and is a great fishing, boating, and water sport lake. There are many private homes all over the lake and numerous cabins and vacation rental properties.

Lake LBJ is near the towns of Kingsland, Granite Shoals, Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay, Sunrise Beach, and Llano. Llano and Marble Falls are not on the lake but close by. It is about 1 1/2 hrs from both Austin & San Antonio. It is about 4 hrs from Houston and Dallas. Many families from west Texas have vacation homes on Lake LBJ.

Highly recommend Log Country Cove on Lake LBJ for a family vacation.

Many families come to Lake LBJ each summer for their summer vacations.

This will give you a great overview of things to do on and around Lake LBJ, Texas. Lots of great restaurants, hotels, 2nd vacation homes and shopping in nearby towns. I was surprised when someone said the lake is dirty. It only gets murky on occassion like after heavy rain may churn things up. Otherwise it's great for all types of lake fun and one of the few lakes that allows all types watercraft in central Texas.

Water sports are the top reason to enjoy Lake LBJ. Also, if you want a house on a lake, this is the one since you can have a home right on the water. Horseshoe Bay is one of the most prestigious areas around the lake, with great amenities.

We were invited to go with my in laws to meet with the realtor to view lake front properties on Lake LBJ. We took our boat and met the realtor so she could show us the properties for sale by water.
The lake was sooo dark, murky and dirty. I was amazed by the huge homes on such a dirty lake. The lake is narrow and has a lot of shallow parts. I was glad the realtor was riding in our boat with us as she told us where all of the shallow shots were.
My son was skiing and the lake was so narrow the boat behind us couldn't even pass. This was on a Sunday afternoon. I couldn't imagine being on that lake on a Friday or Saturday!!!
There are so many beautiful lakes but LBJ is NOT one of them!!! I would never want to visit that lake again!
