Highland Lakes of Central Texas

Visitors and Tourist Guide for the Highland Lakes
and Texas Hill Country with maps and hundreds of pictures

The "Highland Lakes Web Page" is the largest, most comprehensive website covering the Highland Lakes area with over 80 categories and over 1,000 photos of the area.  As well as having information on all of the Highland Lakes, also has information on the towns in the area and information on special upcoming events, lake rental houses, resorts and lodges at the lakes, real estate information, and more.

The Highland Lakes Web Page covers all six of the Highland Lakes in central Texas: Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis and Lake Austin and several towns around the Highland Lakes.  Four of the six Highland Lakes are normally constant level lakes for ideal boating and other water activities.  

Sailing on Lake LBJ

Lady Bird Lake is also included on the Highland Lakes Web Page even though it is not considered one of the Highland Lakes.  It is the next lake down from Lake Austin in the city of Austin.

The Highland Lakes are located in these four Texas counties:   Llano, Burnet, Williamson and Travis Counties.

Hand-feeding two fawns

"The Deer Capital of Texas" is what Llano County is aptly called. You will find some of the friendliest deer you have ever seen in Horseshoe Bay on Lake LBJ.  Deer are also plentiful around Inks Lake at the golf course and at the State Park.

Note:  It is not advisable to feed wild animals.  Some areas now have rules about not feeding the deer.

A very large striped bass

You will find great fishing in the Highland Lakes. The photo above is a Striper caught in Lake Buchanan by a local resident.

A field of Bluebonnets

In the spring from the middle of March through most of June the Highland Lakes area turns into a virtual paradise with the fields of wildflowers. First, the Bluebonnets bloom, and they are quickly joined by the red Indian Paintbrush flowers for beautiful fields of red and blue. As these flowers start to fade the fields are taken over by other red, yellow and white flowers. You have to see them to really appreciate how beautiful these fields of flowers are.
