Overview

Airport Beach Shelter, 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:

Airport Beach Park is located on the North Shore of Waco Lake, about a quarter-mile west of the dam. The lake is primarily fed by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.

Recreation:

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.

Facilities:

The accessible shelter fits 110 guests, and a picnic area with grills and tables makes the park ideal for large parties and family functions.

Nearby Attractions:

Waco Lake Wetlands educational tours take visitors through a six-acre nursery of aquatic plants and more than 130 species of birds. A zoo is also located nearby.
