Lake Austin is a man made reservoir that runs through some of the most expensive real estate in Central, West and Northwest Austin. Formed in 1939 by the construction of the Tom Miller Dam, it is used today for flood control, electrical power generation and most importantly for you and I, recreation. In Austin, its warm enough to use your boat 280-300 days per year, so you’ll often see boats on Lake Austin. There is one boat ramp in Central Austin’s Tarrytown neighborhood and one near Highway 360, but, living on Lake Austin can mean more time on the lake.
