Lake Austin

Public Access Facilities

Return to Lake Austin fishing page

Almost all the shoreline around Lake Austin is privately owned, which limits bank fishing. Bank access can be found at the Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360) bridge, at Emma Long Park, Mary Quinlan Park, and Fritz Hughes Park near Mansfield Dam. Two excellent concrete public boat ramps are available: the Walsh Boat Landing, located off Lake Austin Blvd., and a ramp below the Loop 360 bridge. Additional ramps are located at Emma Long Park and Mary Quinlan Park. Camping is available in Emma Long Park, operated by the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department, (512) 974-6700.
