  • Lots of cabin rentals in the area....but, they book way in advance! CALL AHEAD! Also, helicopter rides over the lake are an awesome way to see the fall foliage, etc. Beautiful.

  • Amazing lake! Large enough to get away from everyone and enjoy swimming in privacy. The water temperature is June is oerfectb- not too warm or cold. The water is clean and is a please to be in it. Recommend renting a kayak or a boat at the Beavers Bend Marina!
  • Pretty lake with lots of trails. We visited one of the look out spots of the lake.
  • We always have a ton of fun in this area every year!!
  • I absolutely love this lake !! It’s beautiful and clear ! I hope to return this summer to enjoy it with my girls. We’ve made this trip twice so far from Waco, Texas and this Christmas we will be back to stay in a bigger cabin on the lake! Can’t wait !!
  • It’s really pretty out there. I went camping on Labor Day. It’s kind of hilly so it can be difficult to find a level spot for your tent in most areas. For food I recommend going to the eat out in Hochatown nearby the lake.
