ACCESS/CAMPING - (See Boating for Ramps and Marinas)
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.  See Map of Public Parks and Marinas in Lake LBJ area.

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 also available at a number of private campgrounds around Lake LBJ.

The LCRA (512) 473-4083 offers a good map of the lake.  Commercial maps are available at tackle and sporting goods stores.

All fish are currently regulated under statewide regulations, with the exception of white bass, which has a 12-inch minumum length limit. The 12 inch minimum for white bass is designed to protect females from harvest before they reach sexual maturity.
