Turkey Bend Recreation Area, 400 acres on Lake Travis, has prime camping and fishing spots with great views of the lake. Some sites along the shore offer views of picturesque cliffs across the lake.

While the area doesn't have a boat ramp, it is a good place to put canoes and kayaks into the lake.
