LAKE BUCHANAN is the second largest of the Highland Lakes in Central Texas with a length of 30 miles and 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.


The photo above is a privately owned lighthouse that is near Buchanan Dam. It can be seen as you drive along at the south end of Lake Buchanan on Hwy 29.


Sunset on Lake Buchanan


RV Parks, cabins for rent, lake rental houses, campgrounds, and beautiful sunsets 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.

Planning on bringing your boat to the Highland Lakes?

Stop Zebra Mussels!  Clean, drain and dry

Clean, Drain and Dry your boat to prevent the spread of zebra mussels and other invasive species.



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.  In 1995, over 1 1/2 million Striper Bass were stocked in Lake Buchanan.  Fishing Guides are available to take you out on the lake.

Boating on Lake Buchanan


There is a nice granite gravel shore around some of the lake providing an ideal beach for swimming, wading and sun bathing.

You can take a cruise up Lake Buchanan on a 200 passenger vessel complete with an enclosed all-weather deck plus two observation decks.  Operating year round with the 2 1/2 hour scenic wilderness tour through the historic Colorado River Canyon.  Perfect for spotting the nesting Bald Eagles and looking at the waterfalls.

There is a popular winery on the west side of the lake where you can stop in for a little wine tasting and buy a bottle or two of Texas wine.
