Lake Buchanan: Deep in the Heart of Texas!


As much as I love my quirky hometown of Austin, Texas, I love to escape to my wonderful lake house on Lake Buchanan in the scenic hilly county of central Texas. Fun can always be found on this relaxing lake!

I’ve lived in Texas for all 16 years of my life and Lake Buchanan has been a huge part of it. Every summer of my life has been spent at my lake house situated on the beautiful Lake Buchanan. What sets it apart from many lakes is the fact that it is not in an urban area. No, when you visit this lake, you’ll get a full immersion in to the friendly country-folk of Texas. Because the lake is so big, there are many places to explore. Why not go to the waterfalls? How about some rock jumping (there are many good places for that)? You can even keep it simple and go to “Picnic Island”, pull your boat right up to the shore, hop out, swim, explore, and eat.

What also sets Lake Buchanan apart from other lakes is the fact that it is so calm. There are plenty of boats on the lake, but they never congregate in one area, so you never have to deal with a “busy” day. You can go out on the lake on any given day and never find it too busy or full of boats. There is no way that I can compile every thought and memory I have of this lake into one article. All I can say is this: if you are ever in the area, be sure to hang out on the waters of Lake Buchanan. I guarantee a good time!
