LCRA opens new boat ramp at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area on Lake Travis

The Lower Colorado River Authority has opened a new boat ramp at Muleshoe Bend Recreation Area on Lake Travis, providing boaters with easy access to launch and enjoy fishing and other water-based activities.

“There isn’t another boat ramp in the area, so boaters can launch and explore a different part of Lake Travis they may not have seen before,” said Susie Baxter-Harwell, LCRA park operations manager. “This is a way park visitors can enjoy the easy access to the lake at Muleshoe Bend.’’

Muleshoe Bend, a popular recreation area known for its mountain biking and spring wildflowers, also offers visitors the opportunity to camp, swim, and enjoy wildlife. The park is owned and operated by LCRA.

Construction of the new 600-foot-long ramp was completed in April. The boat ramp opened to the public recently after rains increased the level of Lake Travis.

LCRA welcomes more than a million visitors a year to its more than 40 parks, recreation areas and river access sites. For more information, including a list of amenities available at each park and details on how to reserve a campsite, visit www.lcra.org/parks.
