What a great place to hang out!  This inviting deck overlooks the water and is the perfect place to sit and watch the activity on the lake.  There is plenty of seating for everyone with two tables, 8 chairs, 2 chaise lounges and a park bench.  A barbeque/smoker is handy for grilling the day's   catch.

Open Water View from the Glider Swing on the Boat Dock

Bring your boat and jet skis!  If you don't have a boat or jet skis, you can rent them locally.  Put your boat up on the electric lift and be on the water in an instant.  The jet ski ramp will hold two jet skis.

Maximum weight in boat lift is 3500 pounds.  If boat is larger, you can tie up beside or pull in slip, but not lift.

Boat House

For great night fishing two underwater fishing lights really attract the fish to the boat dock.  It is fun watching the fish swim in the lighted water at night.

Boat Dock with Swimming/Fishing Deck

The boat house at Blue Cove has a million dollar view of Lake LBJ.  Newly added lighting makes it very pleasant for evening fishing or just visiting with family and friends.
