Natural Features:

Lake Georgetown is a reservoir on the north fork of the San Gabriel River in central Texas. The dam was completed in 1979 to provide flood control and water supply for the nearby community of Georgetown, and now provides countless recreation opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.


Boating is the most popular way to enjoy the clear waters of the lake.

Fishing is excellent in the area, and the lake contains Black bass, White bass, Hybrid stripers, White crappie, Channel catfish and Flathead catfish, but its most known for its abundance of Smallmouth bass.

The San Gabriel River Trail is a 26 mile rugged trail winding through dense juniper forest, hardwood bottomlands and prairie grasslands. The trail wraps completely around Georgetown Lake via the dam and is open to both hiking and biking.

Hunting is available for for small game like dove, waterfowl, rabbit and squirrel, as well as white tail deer.


Tejas Park has 12 primitive campsites, allowing visitors to enjoy the outdoor experience with the added convenience of a picnic area with grills and fire rings. A Group Area is available for use by larger groups (maximum 25 people). The group site does not have a shelter.

Nearby Attractions:

The nearby town of Georgetown offers gas, groceries and more. The historic downtown square district has shops and restaurants, and concerts and events are held on a regular basis.

Additionally, Austin is located just 25 miles from the lake, offering countless tourist attractions.
