Welcome to Lake Conroe

Lake Conroe www.stateart1.netI’m very excited that Lake Conroe is my home.

I have chosen to live here because of the leisure activities, the casual, friendly and interesting people who reside here, and the opportunity to truly enjoy a very close association with nature here. 

As I write this, I’m enjoying the sunset over Lake Conroe.

Lake Conroe is located approximately one hour north of downtown Houston (via IH-45) and is on the west fork of the San Jacinto River. It was built as a joint project of the City of Houston, the Texas Water Development Board, and the San Jacinto River Authority in 1973 as an alternate water source for the City of Houston.

When the lake is full, it covers 22,000 acres, is 26 miles long and 6 miles wide at the widest point. The average depth of the lake is 20 feet deep; the deepest spot is 70 feet in the river channel. There are 157 miles of shoreline along Lake Conroe.

Lake Conroe is a water supply reservoir and is not a constant level Lake.  Currently the water level of the Lake is full which presents itself as an excellent opportunity to purchase prime property in this lush environment. Lake Conroe is known for boating, fishing, skiing, lively entertainment and ample restaurants. This lends itself to a family friendly and relaxed environment.

Fishing at Lake Conroe, Texas - Troubledog (flickr)The lake is bordered on the north by Sam Houston National Forest, which provides an abundance of wildlife such as deer and several species of birds. The lake has some of the best fishing around with species such as blue, channel and flathead catfish; striped, white and large-mouth bass; crappie and smallmouth buffalo.

In addition to fishing and being the reserve drinking water supply for the City of Houston, Lake Conroe offers clean, clear water for a large variety of other  recreation including boating, hunting, golfing, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing and pleasure boating.

Luxurious hotels and condominiums, quality RV Parks, waterfront boat storage with valet launching, luxurious waterfront real estate developments are only a few of the attractions to this exceptional man made Lake only 60 minutes north from Houston via IH-45.
