“Wonderful weekend at the Lake”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We love Lake LBJ as it's an annual location to meet for our family reunion. We use a private boat ramp and only ski and tube. I've heard the fishing is good.

“Decent Lake”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 via mobile

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.

“The Lucky Ones - We Live on LBJ!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

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.

“See the trailer The Daytripper did on PBS about Lake LBJ/Kingsland”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

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.

“Constant level lake makes it the best in South Texas”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

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.
