Lake-Whitney is a reservoir located in central Texas on the main branch of the Brazos River. It encompasses a surface area of more than 23,500 acres and 225 miles of shoreline. The area consists of rolling hills, tallgrass prairies, cedar trees, hardwood timber, and bluffs. It's an easy drive from Dallas/Fort Worth along Interstate 35, and Lake Whitney is also part of the Texas Lakes Trail Region of North Texas. There are abundant opportunities for water sports and other activities at Lake Whitney year-round. The most popular activities at the lake include fishing, boating, sailing, jet skiing, wakeboarding, water skiing, hunting, and golf. Other things to do include horseback riding, hiking, fossil hunting and rodeos. The area was designated as the Getaway Capital of Texas by the Texas Legislature, and it's little wonder why when you consider all the area's attractions. Not only Lake Whitney recreation, but also antique malls, boutiques, outlet stores, museums and art galleries. There are also historical sites to visit and wineries to tour. What a great place to plan a family vacation, or plan a peaceful, relaxed getaway in the heart of the Texas Lakes Trail Region.
