Twin Bridges, located on one of Waco Lake's sandy beaches, is ideal for families and friends to enjoy picnicking, sightseeing and water activities, all while staying within the Waco city limits.

Natural Features:

The shelter is located on the west shore of the Waco Lake. The lake is primarily fed by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.


The main lake shoreline has a large amount of submerged timber, which typically holds fish year-round. Anglers will find plenty of catfish, crappie, large and smallmouth bass as well as sunfish.

A swimming beach, boat ramp and dock all help visitors enjoy the lake.


Twin Bridges boasts a swimming beach, horseshoe pits, a covered playground and a sand volleyball court. The group shelters can accommodate up to 225 guests and the parking lot fits 97 vehicles.

Nearby Attractions:

Horseback riding, hiking and biking can be done on the 20-mile Lacy Point Hiking and Biking Trail. The trail is accessible from the Lacy Point boat ramp or Reynolds Creek Park.
