As its name suggests, Mansfield Dam Park is located adjacent to Mansfield Dam on the main body of Lake Travis and serves as one of the primary access points for boaters.

The recreational area boasts a wide array of amenities to accommodate scuba divers, swimmers, boaters, picnickers, and nature enthusiasts.

Set back from the water's edge, a central recreation area offers picnic sites, a playground, horseshoe pits, chess tables, and a panoramic view of the Lake Travis basin. As an added bonus, the a concession facility in the heart of the Mansfield courtyard provides food, beverages, and lake gear for your every need.

Mansfield Dam Park is operated by Travis County Parks. For more information, visit Travis County Parks Mansfield Dam Park page.

Boaters on Lake Travis and other lakes are required to drain their boats after use to help prevent the spread of zebra mussels. Learn more.


Four-lane boat ramp
The deepest, most accessible boat ramp on Lake Travis, Mansfield Dam's boat ramp has four lanes, with an adjoining wheelchair-accessible courtesy dock to make lake launching easy. Also, parking capacity has been increased to accommodate 112 trailer-towing vehicles.

Day use area
The day use area of the park offers picnic tables with barbecue grills, including several with covered shelters, tucked amid the canopies of native trees. Picnic sites and lake access are easily reachable by strolling along the meandering hike and bike trail to the location of your choice.

Scuba diving
Diving is almost as easy as stepping right from your car door into the lake. We have provided dive stairs, a wheelchair-accessible ramp, and a courtesy dive lift to ease the trek from hillside to lakeside. Underwater amusement has been enhanced by the addition of four underwater dive platforms at various lake levels. Also, an underwater trail and compass course will be laid out to connect dive attractions such as sunken boats, historic dam construction materials, and geological points of interest.

The western peninsula of Mansfield Dam park enjoys some of the most beautiful views of Lake Travis. Wander along our hike and bike trail to a peaceful pavilion surrounded by trees and vines. This is an excellent spot to appreciate the view, watch the wildlife, or read a book.
