Lake Georgetown is a reservoir on the North Fork of the San Gabriel River near Georgetown, TX. The lake was created, and is managed by, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in order to supply water to nearby cities and towns. Lake Georgetown has been stocked with many species of fish to improve recreational fishing, which makes it a great place for fishing catfish, bass, and sunfish.
What Makes It Great
There are several recreational parks here that are managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including Cedar Breaks Park and Russell Park. These parks make great places to access the lake or spend time doing other recreational activities. There is the Good Water Trail, a 16-mile long hiking trail that follows the south shore and part of the north shore of the lake. The trail has been extended to a 24 mile loop around the lake that starts and ends in Cedar Break Park. Mountain biking is allowed on this trail on the north side of Lake Georgetown.
Who is Going to Love It
This lake is a popular weekend destination for students of nearby Southwestern University in Georgetown, so weekdays are probably best to avoid the crowd. Have fun!
