Always Love walking around the dam.

Couldn't take my three year old out in the water without worrying. Great swimming but for strong swimmers.

Marina staff very helpful. Small marina store, but well-stocked with what boaters need, at reasonable prices. Marina slips in great condition and new slips being installed.

I always like to see the whole view. If you drive up the Skyline road which is a neighborhood on a mountain, it has the best view for pictures! Beautiful sight to see when you are in town!

If you are looking for beautiful hill country vistas and spectacular water fun, then this is the place to be. Lots of popular water sports Outfitters and attractive campgrounds & lodging available. Unique Hill Country restaurants too. Always a fun and enjoyable experience for the whole family.

it is huge. You kind of need some direction from a local to know where to go. We put in our jet skis there and have also went kayaking in the fall. Beautiful area, busy in the summer with boats.

Being February, we were not going boating but it was in fact a great place to relax and have a picnic. Also if you approach the lake from the South, you can walk across the top of the dam to get a wonderful view of both the lake and the river below.
