Lake Austin, formerly Lake McDonald, is a water reservoir on the Colorado River in Austin, Texas. The reservoir was formed in 1939 by the construction of Tom Miller Dam
Spend a day on the lake on a paddle board, kayak or canoe. Our favorite place to rent is Texas Rowing Center.
Great for paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing, amazing views of Downtown Austin.
Lake Austin is a constant level lake. Go eat at Hula Hut or Abel's on the Lake OR grab a coffee at Motzart's.
