Lake Whitney is the perfect spot for boating of all kinds. There are numerous marinas and places to rent boats and watercraft, along with more than twenty public and private boat ramps. Award winning marinas offer wet slips, dry storage, fuel, boat repair, overnight lodging, supplies, and launching facilities. Numerous businesses in the area are equipped to help with any water sports needs you may have, whether it be fishing, rentals, tours, or more.
You can rent a canoe or kayak and paddle the calm waters of the Brazos River south of the dam. On your way down the river, stop to swim, enjoy a picnic, watch for wildlife along the shores, and enjoy the surrounding views.
Families have fun swimming off their boats, or pulling the kids on inflatables. Sailing is popular, too, especially around the dam, and regattas are held several times a year.
Personal watercraft such as jet skis are a great way to spend a few hours touring the lake with friends.
Pontoon boats are popular for groups wanting to cruise the lake for the day. For those looking for more speed, powerboats of all kinds can be found on Lake Whitney. Airboat trips on the Brazos River are popular with visitors.
You'll see everything from paddleboats to houseboats on the lake. No matter what style of boating appeals to you, it's all here at Lake Whitney!
