Located northwest of Austin, Lake Travis belongs to a group of six manmade reservoirs along Texas’ Colorado River that is known as the Highland Lakes. Created by the construction of Mansfield Dam in 1941, one of Lake Travis’ primary functions is flood control, characterized by a water level that remains constantly changing. It also serves a vital role in electrical power generation and as the water supply for the nearby city of Austin and the surrounding metropolitan area.

Lake Travis starts at Max Starcke Dam in Burnet Country and snakes 63 miles southeast toward Lakeway, where it meets Mansfield Dam and feeds into Lake Austin. Lake Austin, in turn, feeds into Lady Bird Lake.

Lake Travis is the longest of these three lakes, with over 270 miles of shoreline. The surface area of Lake Travis takes up 18,930 acres, making it 10 times larger than both Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake combined. It is also deeper, with a maximum depth of 210 feet. Lake Travis boasts the clearest and coldest water of the three Austin lakes.

Lake Travis view

Recreation on Lake Travis includes boating, kayaking, jet-skiing, sailing, parasailing, swimming, scuba diving, picnicking, camping, and zip-lining. For anglers, Lake Travis has been stocked with several species of fish, including Largemouth Bass, Guadalupe Bass, White and Striped Bass, Catfish, and Sunfish.

LAKE TRAVIS HISTORY

lake travis homesA hundred years ago, nothing but the Colorado River coursed through the farms and ranches 20 miles west of Austin. Occasionally, the river rose, causing devastating floods. The area now known as Lake Travis came to be thanks to the determination of the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) and the support of two politicians: J.P. Buchanan and Lyndon Johnson (a young Congressman at the time).

“Of all the endeavors on which I have worked in public life, I am proudest of the accomplishment in developing the Colorado River.” - Lyndon Johnson, 1958

After four years of construction, a 7,000 foot-long dam was created to control flooding and produce hydroelectric electricity. The resulting lake, Lake Travis, could now store 256 billion gallons of flood water!

Today, Lake Travis is a tourist destination for visitors from all over Texas and beyond—boaters, skiers, fishing enthusiasts, and water lovers enjoy its natural beauty and majestic landscapes. The growing residential community has produced a thriving environment for commercial and retail businesses.

LAKE TRAVIS HOMES

With its laidback, lakeside lifestyle, rolling hill country beauty, and half-hour proximity to Austin, upscale residential real estate along the Lake Travis remains in high demand. Its neighborhoods comprise tens of thousands of homes.

Lake Travis estates

Melanie Sharp is a Lake Travis resident and mother of two. The flaming sunsets over Lake Travis are her favorite part of life there. “But we moved to Rough Hollow for the hill country beauty, the lake-loving community, and the exemplary schools,” she explained.

Rough Hollow HomeStunning Lake Travis views rival any that can be found on Lake Austin, with an added level of seclusion and privacy. Offerings include lake view and lakeside lots, homes, condos, and luxury estates, and prices can go up to the multi-millions. Many properties feature outdoor living areas, pools, and patios that take advantage of the sweeping lake views. Elite offerings include guest casitas, equine facilities, and private vineyards. Cliffside homes overlooking Lake Travis also are available.
