Lake Waco forms the western border of the city of Waco. It’s an angler’s paradise with more than 51 species of fish—bass, catfish and crappie the most common. There’s plenty for hunters also: deer, rabbits, squirrel, dove and waterfowl. For the “beach bums” and swimmers, Airport Beach on the north shore and Twin Bridges Park on the western shore both have clean, safe beaches, covered picnic sites and a group shelter that can be reserved.
The area around the lake has trails for everyone. The Tejas Nature Trail is an easy hike through a forest of ash and juniper trees. Humpy Gulch is not long but it’s a fun trail. On the Lost Oak Lagoon Trail, you’ll stroll along beneath a lush canopy of centuries-old oak trees with views of the lagoon—the place to be on those blazing hot Texas days. The Lacy Point Trail is 20 miles long for biking or riding a horse. It is also an interpretative trail with wooden posts along the way to identify plant life and wildlife habitats.
