More than a mile of grassy shoreline is easily accessible at Gloster Bend Recreation Area on Lake Travis' north shore. Most visitors to the 586-acre recreation area come to use the boat ramp (check here for boat ramp status). The park itself is day-use only.

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.


Day Use only. Picnic areas are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are required.
