So I am wanting to take a trip out to Marble Falls soon and was wondering if any of yall have ever been out on the water in the area? We drove through and stopped here last summer on the way back from Canyon Lake and ate right off the water and I decided that I had to take the boat out there and check it out. Looked like a very beautiful area.

We have been on Lake LBJ several times but never Marble Falls. Every time we are there we vow to get on Marble Falls but never have. After a couple of trips there I am pretty sure my wife will let us retire nowhere else but the Marble Falls area. Those lakes are constant level which obviously living in Texas you know how great that is. If you get out there let us know how it is, I expect it will be nothing short of awesome.

Upper Colorado on LBJ is much better IMO.

We bought property on LBJ the Colorado arm.It's perfect for Wakeboarding and wind protected.Marble Falls is very nice,but the water level does fluctuate from time to time.

By the way, the MSRP of new construction on both lakes is the same. Both are filled with water. It's science.

Only the people that can afford to travel.But the good news is you will have a new taxpayer in the state to help ease the burden.

I believe that there is less than 3 miles of usable lake (the upper portion is shallow due to silting). The 281 bridge is under construction, which results in a no-wake section approximately 1.5 miles from the dam.

If you like to explore and long rides, I would not recommend this lake.

We have a place at LBJ and with Travis so low our boat traffic on weekends has probably doubled. Sometimes we go sit and eat at Chiles on lake Marble Falls and I look down at that lake with pretty good wind protection and no boats and really wish I had a trailer to pull it over there!

If you are there on the weekend you had better get up really early if you want any butter. The upper Colorado is great when you have low boat traffic but gets too busy on weekends by about 930am. If its not too windy the stretch between Kingsland and Sunrise beach is wider and can be good too. LBJ has a few shallow spots here and there, so if you don't know the lake a depth finder with beeper is a good idea. You wont find many good places near Horseshoe bay. There are some small coves, but they are sorta tight so you end up turning around most of your set. The main lake over by Horseshoe bay is nearly always horribly choppy.

There used to be several places to eat on the water, but there are pretty much only 2 left. One over by the damn, and one here you can GPS.. Its a pretty cool place, good bar, so so food, pretty crowded on weekends:

If my boat gets back from shop maybe we will see you out there (see profile pic)!

Bout 15-20 minutes up to Colorado arm.

You might be able to find some coves up in HSB area and spare yourself a pretty rough ride in a Star all the way to Colorado.. One thing to do for sure is cruise through Applehead Island near HSB and check out all the multi-million dollar homes right on the water. They have little channels cut back in there and its fun to look at the houses. Watch your depth though
