Autumn is well on it’s way! Are you ready for fun and fall activities? As the weather cools down, we have several options for things to do out on Lake LBJ! Just keep reading and hopefully you’ll get an idea, and get out there and enjoy the weather- and the water!

Pitch a Tent

The fall is a great season to plan a camping trip! The temperatures are dropping, making daytime camping more manageable, and the evenings are downright pleasant. Don’t forget your tarps, your flashlights, your food and water, and of course- your camera! The beautiful weather of fall makes for a wonderful, picturesque setting to both camp in, and capture perfect moments.

Grab Your Pole!

Grab your fishing pole, and head on out to the lake. If you’re out early enough, you’ll get to experience the beauty of a fall sunrise, and hopefully you’ll have a catch, or a few!

Relax on the Boat

Isn’t it time to take the load off, and take your boat out on the lake? We sure think so! Here in Central Texas, the weather is still perfect for boating, just maybe not swimming. So gear up, grab your keys, and boat on out there!

Observe the Wildlife

While you’re out camping or hiking, you can view the wildlife in the area. Around the lake, you can spot many deer, as well as raccoons, opossums, and maybe even a fox! Definitely bring your camera along for this one.

Go for a Hike

Last but certainly not least, hiking! Hiking is great for the mind, body, and soul. You can view plants and wildlife, share a few memories, and get a great workout- all at the same time!

Whatever you decide to do this fall, we hope you choose Lake LBJ. The lake is the perfect place to bring your family and friends, or to get away for some peace and quiet. So don’t forget to plan the trip!
