Enhanced Burn Ban In Effect
A countywide enhanced burn ban has been enacted for Travis County. Ground fires and using charcoal or wood to barbecue are prohibited. Cooking with propane is allowed.
Sandy Creek Park is located on one of the quieter coves of Lake Travis, in the scenic Hill Country of central Texas. This 25-acre park is an ideal spot for swimming, nature walks, birding, camping, and fishing. Boaters and overnight campers will appreciate the park's easy accessibility to the basin area of Lake Travis, as well as its close proximity to Austin. At the same time this park offers a serene, wooded environment away from the heavier boat traffic found on other sections of the lake. Sandy Creek is home to several rare bird and plant species, including the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler. A hike along the wooded bluff and shoreline provides a good view of the lake.
Sandy Creek Park is operated by Travis County Parks. For more information, visit
