Welcome to Lake Waco, one of the most naturally scenic spots in the entire city.

This lake makes up the western city border, with its dam sitting on the Bosque River. It serves as the halfway point between Dallas and Houston (1.5 hours each way).

While here your group will have so many options for activities! Here are just a few:

  • Boating
  • Jet Ski
  • Water Ski
  • Camping
  • Fishing
  • Swimming
  • Wildlife/Birdwatch
  • Hike
  • Bike
  • Picnic

If you head to Airport Park along the north shore of the lake you can enjoy the marina and restaurant, or you can just enjoy the scenic 2,000 acres around the lake, which is itself just over 7,000 acres. You will have an excellent view of the Highway 6 Bridge as you go along.

After your visit head to nearby Buzzard Billy's for a bite to eat or take a trip to the nearby Cameron Zoo.
