Our guest docks are among the nicest on the lake! Our docks are covered and most of them have lifts to raise your boat out of the water to protect it from waves and to keep that hull clean. No more “scum line” after a fun vacation on the water.

All slips are lighted and have GFCI-protected outlets so you can charge up your battery. You can launch from our concrete ramp and we have ample parking for your trailer.
PWC ramps rent for $8 per day. Slips without a lift rent for $10 per day. Slips for boats up to 20’ with a lift rent for $14 per day. Slips for boats 20’ to 24’ with a lift rent for $16 per day.

you can fish in comfort in our recently renovated, enclosed, lighted fishing house. A
covered, outside deck allows guests to enjoy the breeze and serene view while bringing in
crappie, bass or catfish some of our most popular fish. April and October seem to
be the best months for crappie, although they are caught year round.
Children and adults alike enjoy building
fires in the wood burning stove we supply the wood. Lots of kids have caught their
first fish here. We make it easy by selling bait and small tackle. And dont forget
Each spring our landscape and roadsides are
blanketed with wildflowers sometimes well into the month of June.

prettiest areas in the state are near Lake LBJ its no wonder that so many people

Fall and winter are among the
best kept secrets about the Texas Hill Country. The weather is warm not hot- and

tending their young in a nest just off State Highway 29.
