Lake Whitney


Located roughly 80 miles south of the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex, Lake Whitney has become a popular recreational destination with over two million visitors each year enjoying camping, fishing, boating, water skiing, hunting, sight-seeing, and much more. Named the Official Getaway Capital of the state by the Texas Legislature in 2005, the lake terrain resembles Texas Hill Country with towering cliffs, sandy beaches, protective coves and clear blue water.  More Lake Information
