Part of the Highland Lakes chain on the Colorado River, Lake Austin begins in west Austin at Mansfield Dam (Lake Travis) and ends 21 miles downstream at Tom Miller Dam, where it feeds into downtown Austin’s Lady Bird Lake.

Recreational activities on Lake Austin include jet skiing, boating, water-skiing, lake surfing, boat tours, camping, picnicking, bird watching, and fishing. Unlike Lake Travis, Lake Austin is a constant-level lake filled with aquatic vegetation like hydrilla and watermilfoil. Like Lake Travis, however, it is deeper than Lady Bird Lake, covered with boathouses and docks, and full of Largemouth bass, Sunfish, and Catfish. The lake has a surface area of 1,830 acres and a maximum depth of 75 feet.

Marion Weller lives in Greenshores, a Lake Austin community in northwest Austin. “My husband loves having a private boat ramp just down the hill from our house. I love the second-story views of the lake,” she said. “But what we love most about living here is the seclusion.”

LAKE AUSTIN HISTORY

Formerly Lake McDonald, Lake Austin was the first large, manmade reservoir in Texas. It was formed in 1893 after the completion of the Austin Dam, which toppled in a flood seven years later. In 1939, the Lower Colorado River Authority built Tom Miller Dam, which stands to this day.

Tom Miller Dam

Tom Miller Dam, a concrete pier and slab structure 1,590 feet long, allows Lake Austin to be used for flood control, water supply, electrical power generation, and recreation. There are two generators in the powerhouse at Tom Miller Dam, each with a capacity of 6,750 kilowatts.

LAKE AUSTIN HOMES

“If there’s one thing more beautiful than a sunset on Lake Austin,” said Weller, “it’s a beautiful home on Lake Austin.”

Lake Austin propertiesLake Austin winds through some of Austin finest residential areas. Real estate opportunities range from palatial lakeside estates to luxury waterfront homes and condos. The sizes of Lake Austin homes range from the quaint, Craftsman-style cottages adorning Lake Austin’s northeast side (Tarrytown) to luxury lakefront mansions in exclusive neighborhoods like Watersedge and The Island at Mount Bonnell.

Offering tranquil surroundings, shimmering lake views, instant access to Lake Austin’s recreational opportunities, and a location minutes from downtown, the premiere real estate lining Lake Austin homes can be priced well into the multi millions. Its lakefront homes typically include boat docks, and its cliffside estates can feature high-end trolley systems.

Lake Austin homes are served by several acclaimed school districts, including Austin ISD, Eanes ISD, and Lake Travis ISD. Zip codes on Lake Austin or with Lake Austin views include 78703, 78746, 78731, 78730, 78733, 78732, 78638, and 78734.

“Our neighborhood is within walking distance of lakeside Emma Long Park and Ski Shores café. Both are great Austin landmarks,” shared Weller, “and Curtain Theatre is just around the corner.”

For incomparable sunset views, residents can hike up the cliffs beside famous Austin landmark Pennybacker Bridge. A hike up nearby Mount Bonnell rewards residents with sunset lake views and stargazing.

Parks & Landmarks

Voted “Best Walk in the Park” by the Austin Chronicle in 2008, a 2.5-hour guided tour at Bright Leaf preserve takes visitors through 4 miles and 200 acres of natural Texas Hill Country. Mayfield Nature Park and Preserve borders a nearby inlet of Lake Austin and is known for its peacocks and gardens.

Emma Long Metropolitan Park, one of the largest parks in Austin, borders Lake Austin and offers 12 miles of hike and bike trails, boat ramps, volleyball courts, a splash pad, and several swimming areas shaded by cypress trees. One of the largest parks in Austin, it is a popular place for camping, hiking, boating, and picnicking. Archers will appreciate the Austin Archery Club just next door.

A mile northeast of Westlake Hills is 60-year-old Westlake Beach, a weekends-only lakeside park where residents fish, play horseshoes, and barbeque. Have a boat? Westlake Beach also has in-water boat slips for rent.

Boathouse and Lakefront Property

Located on the upper reaches of Lake Austin, six-acre Mary Quinlan Park offers 200 feet of shoreline access, including the only public boat ramp for several miles. It is a popular place for lakefront barbecuing and picnicking, as is nearby Selma Hughes Park.

Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Ranch offers 215 acres, picnic tables, volleyball courts, a boat ramp, and three miles of trails. Though swimming is not allowed, one of the trails features waterfalls and sweeping lake views.

Cultural Activities

Built on the banks of Lake Austin, the privately-owned Curtain Theatre is home to Austin’s only historical Shakespeare company - “The Baron’s Men” - as well as Austin Shakespeare Festival. Built by software developer Richard Garriott, it hosts various public performances year-round.

For museums, lakeside residents drive into to downtown Austin, where they can visit everything from Texas Memorial Museum to the Texas Capitol building and the Blanton Museum. Sports fans might head to UT Stadium for a Longhorn football game. Also downtown is the Frank Erwin Center, hundreds of live music venues, and large festivals like the annual Austin City Limits.

Austin Museum of Art’s The Contemporary Austin at Laguna Gloria offers art exhibitions and classes for all ages. The Long Center for the Performing Arts on nearby Lady Bird Lake offers ballet, opera, and theatrical performances.

Watersports

Lake Austin marinasAside from the famous Pennybacker Bridge, which arches 350 meters across Lake Austin where it intersects with Capital of Texas Highway, the attractions of Lake Austin generally revolve around recreation. A three-lane boat ramp under the Pennybacker Bridge (360 Bridge) is a favorite place for Lake Austin boat entry. Shaded by Cypress and Sycamores, it includes a grassy area for fishing.

Walsh Boat Landing , located beside Tom Miller Dam, offers a historic boat ramp. On Lake Austin, it is the closest boat ramp to downtown Austin. No boat? Nearby Sun & Fun offers Lake Austin Boat Rentals. Off Westlake Drive, Lake Austin Marina offers a full-service, LEED-certifiable marina with 168 slips as well as a ship store.

Golf, Spas, and Country Clubs

Near the 360 Bridge, historic Austin Country Club offers a large clubhouse, a 180-acre course, 10 lighted tennis courts, boat slips, and a heated swimming pool. Founded in 1899, it is one of the oldest country clubs in Texas. For golfers, the club has a Harvey Penick learning center and an 18-hole golf course designed by Pete Dye.

Established in 1957, family-oriented Westwood Country Club provides a variety of premiere services and activities for recreation and dining. At the heart of the complex is a medieval French mansion built in 1925 by Judge and Mrs. James W. McClendon. The club also offers fitness facilities, squash and racquetball courts, a marina, a pro shop, tennis and sports courts, and a 25-meter heated outdoor pool.

Over 6,600 yards of canyon-winding creeks and rolling Texas hill country bless River Place Country Club. A decade ago, its championship golf course was redesigned by Tom Kite and Roy Bechtol. Nearby Lake Austin Spa offers specialized spa treatments and an award-winning luxury resort!

Restaurants & Shopping

“In northwest Austin, the best place to eat and shop is Jester Village Shopping Center. It’s just up City Park Road on 2222,” shared Weller. Jester Village offers various shops, a childcare center, dance studio, Bellagio’s Italian Bistro, and more. Next door at the new Ladera Bend Shopping Center, lake residents can visit Anytime Fitness or Aveda concept Salon and Spa, with many more stores coming soon.

Mozarts Coffee on Lake AustinWhere Westlake Drive intersects with Capitol of Texas Highway stands Davenport Village. Home to iconic Maudie’s Tex-Mex, this two-story outdoor shopping center offers residents a variety of dining and retail options, as well as Body Business gym and Northwest Hills Pharmacy. Nearby, historic County Line Bar-B-Q is a lakeside Austin favorite.

Further west at Capital of Texas Highway and RR 2222 is Bull Creek Market, another outdoor shopping complex with a Waterloo Icehouse, Kid Clips, the Tuscan restaurant Siena, and various retail stores.

On the lake, Ski Shores café has been an Austin lakefront landmark since the fifties! Walsh Boat Landing, located beside Tom Miller Dam, offers lakefront restaurants like Mozart’s Coffee Roasters and Hula Hut Tiki-Mex Restaurant.

Ten minutes south of Lake Austin, The Village at Westlake offers a specialized HEB grocery store (Westlake Market) and various dining options from La Madeline and IZUMI sushi to P. Terry’s Burgers. Residents also enjoy its specialty retailers: Tyler's Sports, Provencal Home & Garden, Bright Beginnings & Beyond, and more.

For upscale shopping and dining, residents drive five miles up Capital of Texas Highway to the high-end, outdoor, 45-store shopping center called The Arboretum. “It has a beautiful, shady park with life-size marble cows, a walking trail and pond,” said Weller. The Arboretum’s small herd of cows was designed by artist Harold F. Clayton.
