Tie up your boats and jet skis at the dock using the wands. If you don't have a boat or jet skis, they can be rented locally.  The water is about 8 feet deep at the end of the fishing dock.

The waterfront at Llano River Retreat has a shallow, sandy-bottom area for wading and swimming close to the shore.  

Please do not let small children and non-swimmers wade too far from shore because there is a drop off several feet from the shore where the water gets deeper.

You can see for miles down the lake.  In the photo to the right above, you can see Packsaddle Mountain in the distance.

Lake LBJ is a normally constant level lake which is great for boating, waterskiing, jet skiing, swimming and other water sports.  This area of Lake LBJ is normally calm and peaceful.

If walls could talk, this home could tell some tales of fun on the lake through the years.  The huge screened porch facing the lake is perfect for swapping fish tales or relaxing after a fun day on the lake.   There is plenty of seating for everyone. The porch runs the width of the house and wraps around one side. A freezer for keeping your catch fresh is located on the porch.

There is usually a pleasant lake breeze, but there is also a ceiling fan if one is needed.   This is a favorite spot for sitting and enjoying nature and wildlife in the area of the home.
