  • Who We Are

    Houston County Lake (not to be confused with Lake Houston) is a 1330 acre spring fed lake that is nestled in the creeks and hills of the Texas Forest Country.

    The lake is a constant level lake and has more consistent water levels than most area lakes.

    It's a great lake for recreational boating and fishing with an almost 60/40% split of open water and fishing structure (fishing is approx. 60%)

Welcome To Houston County Lake! Enjoy the nature!

The lake has many subdivisons and is becoming increasingly developed as growth in the major cities spreads. It is still in early stages of development and is far from the likes of a Lake Conroe of Lewisville. It still has and will continue to have the small town charm for many years.
