19 Best Sailing Lakes in Texas

Ask anyone who has ever visited Texas, and they wouldn’t wait to attest to the heat packed in this state. Summers are hot. Even other seasons stay generally warm. This is a big reason why the residents have built a strong culture around their lakes.

Below are some of the best Texas boating lakes:

Toledo Bend Lake

Toledo Bend Lake is the largest reservoir in the south and can be located on the Sabine River between Texas and Louisiana; even though it spans more into Louisiana. This lake, which was a part of the result of 1969 damming by the Sabine River Authority, covers 1200 miles of shoreline.

While having fun boating on the calm waters, the sandy beaches are open for all sorts of fun, including swimming and picnicking. When boating, there are marked boat lanes for safe boating. This is to prevent your boat from hitting any of the trees and stumps left behind after the reservoir was built.

Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake is a beautiful reservoir on the Guadalupe River dammed by The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide flood control in the lovely Texas Hill Country. Eight parks formed around the lake are still in use by visiting tourists and locals wishing to go swimming, boating, camping, or picnicking next to such an immaculate lake with great views of the hills surrounding it.

You will find a couple of boat ramps around the Comal Country part of the lake. You could also decide to go hiking or biking on the trails around after your boating trip. You can use the guided tours provided by Canyon Lake Gorge. Maybe you will find a set of dinosaur footprint!

Lake Buchanan

Sam Rayburn Reservoir

After the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers carried out an extensive project of building a dam in 1965 to prevent the flooding of the Angelina and Neeches Rivers while also providing drinking water for nearby communities, Sam Rayburn Reservoir was opened.

Today, it holds hundreds of fishing tournaments annually, with many more access points to the lake through resorts, campgrounds, and marinas. The reservoir is also used by locals and visitors for boating, swimming, and waterskiing, while the land around it is used for camping, scenic drives, and nature hikes.

Lake Whitney State Park

Lake Whitney State Park was opened in 1965 as a flood-control reservoir on the Brazos River. Today, the park is perfect for fishing and for spotting wildlife and birds; around 195 birds’ species have been spotted here alone. You may also see some wildlife on land if you are keen-eyed. There are campsites, group facilities, and screened-in shelters in the park.

During the day, you could make use of the boat slips and the picnic tables, or simply head for the water and enjoy some boating or many other recreational activities.

Lake Conroe

Lake Conroe is yet another human-made lake in Texas. This beautiful lake that spans 21,000 acres of space is located at the Montgomery County in East Texas. In 1972 when it was constructed, it was to serve as an alternate water source for Houston.

Now with its fishing piers, boat slips, swimming areas, grills, picnic tables, children’s playground, volleyball courts, and horseshoe pits, it has become a favorite of many fun lovers. It is also well-known for jet-skiing boating.
