Boating and Fishing

Lake Buchanan is home to some of the best striped bass fishing in the state. Stocked each season with the “Striper”, which was formally known as a salt water sport fish, Lake Buchanan is also home to the king of sport fish in Texas, the large-mouth bass. Sport fishermen will also enjoy catching catfish, crappie and perch.

Since Lake Buchanan is not a constant level lake, Beachcomber Park’s 2 boat launches are adaptable to changing situations. A new addition in 2000 will allow boats to launch when the lake is low. Boat docks and slips are in a protected cove.

A nearby fish cleaning station is a gathering point for the successful fisherman. The very popular jet skis may be launched from the ramps as well.

A cattle ranch is the neighbor across the lake, so heavy boat traffic is uncommon in the vicinity of Beachcomber Park.
Boat Storage
Boat storage is available at a monthly rate of $30 per space. Inquire with park manager for more specific details or send email to
