BOATER ADVISORY: Zebra mussels have invaded this reservoir! CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY your boat, trailer, livewells/bait buckets, and other gear before traveling to another water body. Draining water is required by law and possession and transport of zebra mussels is illegal.

The Lower Colorado River Authority and Travis County Parks operate 15 parks on the reservoir. Several of these parks provide campgrounds, beaches, picnic areas, boat ramps and opportunities for shoreline fishing. Entrance and/or launch fees are charged at some parks.
