Lake Whitney Is a Well-Kept Texas Secret
Known by savvy fishermen and water sports enthusiasts, Lake Whitney is the place to relax and have fun. Great striper fishing. Uncrowded recreational waters for boaters. But here is what makes this Texas lake so special.
- Location. Lake Whitney is about an hour south of the DFW metroplex — even closer to Ft. Worth. It is the tip of Hill Country, offering rolling countryside, plenty of woodlands and wildlife.
- Blue Water Designation. “Lake Whitney is one of the prettiest lakes in Texas,” according to Texas Parks and Wildlife — and according to those who frequently fish, swim and boat on it. Its clear and uncrowded waters are bordered in many areas by rugged white limestone cliffs.
- A Man-made Lake Preserved by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The 23,000+ acre lake was created in 1951 by damming the Brazos River for flood control. Its pristine beauty stretches approximately 40 miles which include a great deal of public land and parks.
- Abundant Recreational Opportunities. Besides boating, waterskiing and jetskiing, Lake Whitney is home to prominent fishing tournaments for striped, white, largemouth and smallmouth bass. But there are also about 3,000 acres of winding woodland trails near the lake for horseback riding, hiking, hunting and wildlife photography. It is home to 300 varieties of migratory and non-migratory birds and 50 species of mammals.
- Peaceful Living at Lake Whitney. It is an uncrowded community that enjoys life at the lake. Many city folks have weekend homes on some of the small, quaint roads that border the lake. Others relish full time living there, including at White Bluff Resort, a gated community with expansive lakefront exposure. A heavily wooded 4,500 acre planned community, White Bluff offers a marina, four swimming pools, lighted tennis courts and easy access to Corps of Engineer land for hiking or horseback riding. Homes run a wide range of sizes and prices, including those overlooking the lake, equestrian properties and tucked-away wooded homesites. And like all of the Lake Whitney area, White Bluff residents also enjoy an uncrowded, peaceful life on the lake.
