Lake LBJ (Lyndon B. Johnson)
(Formerly Granite Shoals Lake.) 6,375 acres, one of most scenic in series of Highland Lakes on Colorado River. Edged by steep hills; granite domes rise in several places at shoreline. Lakeside marinas, boat rentals, launching ramps.

Fishing is rated excellent, with lake records of hybrid striped bass, 11.25 lb.; largemouth bass, 12.55 lb.; striped bass 23.5 lb.; and smallmouth bass, 6.46 lb. Water skiing and sailing popular. Just south of Kingsland, accessible from F.M. 1431 edging the lake's east side; from F.M. 2900 and other F.M. roads that lead to recreational areas on the lake's west shoreline.

There are two main public ramps on the lake. The first ramp (Cottonwood) is operated by the LCRA and is located at the dam off FM 2147. This is a good concrete one-lane boat ramp with a parking lot for 20-30 boats and trailers. Launching is free. The second ramp is in the town of Kingsland, located off FM 1431 on the north side of the lake in the Llano River arm. This is a one-lane concrete ramp operated by the Lions Club. A fee is charged for launching. In addition, there are several small public ramps in the town of Granite Shoals.

Inks Lake State Park and Longhorn Caverns State Park offer camping, and are just a short drive from the lake. Because of the popularity of these parks, it is a good idea to make reservations well in advance. Camping is available at a number of private campgrounds at LBJ Reservoir.
