Lake Buchanan Information

If you’re in search of lake homes for sale in Texas, look to Lake Buchanan. The great Colorado River feeds Lake Buchanan, the oldest and second-largest of the region’s Highland Lakes. Lake Buchanan is a scenic wonderland, where you’ll indulge in stunning landscapes, sprawling beaches, adrenaline-pumping recreation, cool waters, and so much more!

Spanning into Burnet and Llano counties, Lake Buchanan’s waters spread across 22,333 acres. This impressive amount of space means that everyone has plenty of room on the water, which is just what anglers need to get the job done. Striped and white bass fishing is particularly good here, and you’ll also find several other varieties of bass, catfish, and crappie. When fishing for largemouth bass, your best bet is to search out the murkier waters near Beaver Creek in spring and autumn—the fish keep near the surface under these conditions. Another useful tip is to watch the sky. Striped and white bass are known to chase the schools of shad worked up by birds on the surface.

The fish aren’t the only ones who enjoy the unique topography of Lake Buchanan. The western side of the lake draws sunbathers and swimmers with its striking granite pebble beaches, while the eastern side showcases sheer granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, and untamed desert landscapes. These spectacular views can be savored from both land and water by either taking a leisurely drive around the lake’s rim or speeding across the lake's surface on a motor boat. Surrounded by such natural beauty, lake homes for sale boast the best landscaping around!

Lake Buchanan is just as revered for its conservation efforts as it is for its recreation. Three parks surround the lake, serving as crucial wildlife sanctuaries that bring nature to lake goers. Cedar Point Recreation Area, Black Rock Park, and Canyon of the Eagles host bald eagles, golden-cheeked warbler, and black-capped vireo. Bird watching is a year-round pastime.

Head to any local golf course and enjoy a game that incorporates the Lake Buchanan scenery. A few notable courses include Hidden Falls, Blue Lake, and Slick Rock. If you’re interested in living on a Lake Buchanan golf course, check out GolfHomes.com for details.

Lake-view properties are encircled by the bounties and wonders of nature. Witness one of the largest migrations of American Bald Eagles from November to March, and see the landscape burst into life with an explosion of wildflowers each spring. And it wouldn’t be spring without the annual Lake Buchanan Regatta, where boats fill the water to celebrate the warm weather.

Lake Buchanan is the oldest, largest and northern most of the Central Texas Highland Lakes famous for its striper bass fishing and its close proximity to Austin, TX. The 31 mile length, 5.5 mile width, 124 miles of shoreline and 23,200 acre feet of water, give Lake Buchanan plenty of room for all types of recreational activity. Lake Buchanan is blessed with numerous cascading waterfalls. The American Bald Eagle winters along its shoreline. An award winning vineyard and winery is a special attraction to visitors. Cruises to the Colorado River headwater of the lake yield a glimpse of the early Texas wilderness. The variations in the shoreline offer areas hilly and rugged with granite cliffs and very deep water while other areas offer smooth, sloping beaches ideal for swimming, wind surfing and picnics. Fishing on Lake Buchanan is awesome with record striper bass, black bass, white bass, hybrid bass and catfish being frequently caught. Even today, Lake Buchanan is called the best kept secret in Central Texas.

Lake Buchanan is located 60 miles northwest of Austin and 95 miles north of San Antonio. It is about 200 miles south of Dallas and Fort Worth and 200 miles west of Houston. Lake Buchanan is 30 miles long with a width at the widest point of just under 5 miles and a shoreline of 124 miles. When it was built, Buchanan Dam was considered to be the longest multiple-arch dam in the U.S. with a length of just over two miles. Also known as "Big Buc", Lake Buchanan has over 124 miles of shoreline and a surface area of 23,060 acres (36 square miles).

RV Parks, motels, bed & breakfast inns, cabins for rent and campgrounds are available along the lake. There are several cafes near the lake: one specializes in catfish, another in good old Texas B-B-Q and some with Texas home style cooking.

The lake is very popular with boaters, fishermen, campers and swimmers. The lake is so large that you will never feel crowded on the lake. There is always plenty of "elbow room" on each of the Highland Lakes. There is a nice granite gravel shore around the lake providing an ideal beach for swimming, wading and sun bathing.
