Activities and Amenities
Waco Lake, which lies in the city limits of Waco, Texas, is fed primarily by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.
The sparkling lake was formed in 1963 with the completion of the Lake Waco Dam. Now, the lake's current water levels are at 79,000 acre feet.
The Tejas Nature Trail, an easy 1.2-mile hike, starts at the park and winds its way through a thick blanket of ash and juniper trees. For visitors looking for a more challenging trek, horseback riding and biking can be done on the 20-mile Lacy Point Hiking and Biking Trail.
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 boat ramp and dock help visitors enjoy the lake.
Reynolds Creek offers 51 spacious campsites, including 10 equestrian sites. Picnic sites are available on a first come, first serve basis.
Waco Lake Wetlands educational tours take visitors through a six-acre nursery of aquatic plants and more than 130 species of birds.
