"The Slab" on the Llano River - A popular swimming area.

Llano River crossing in Kingsland Pluton,
aka "The Slab"

The Slab beach in Kingsland"The Slab" is a popular gathering point on the Llano River just upstream from Kingsland.  There is plenty of sand for sunbathing, picnics, games, etc.  The water is shallow and perfect for wading.  It is a great place to bring the children.

The lazy Llano River drifts over large out croppings of granite which creates pools of inviting, cool water during the warm summer months. Near the bridge, currents begin to pick up speed to flow through narrow row siphons. The water then gently cascades on down the river into Lake LBJ.

The Slab

It's located on FM 3404 that runs from Kingsland west to Hwy. 71
