About Lake Travis

There is not another lake like it. Adored by many, scenic Lake Travis is 63.75 miles long, and with a maximum width of 4.5 miles. The blue water, bluffy lake covers 18,929 acres, and has a capacity of 1,953,936 acre-feet. The lake is considered full pool at an elevation of 681.1 msl. At this elevation the lake contains 382,092,882,600 gallons of water. Woah, I know. There are 270 miles of scenic shoreline around the lake and a lot of it is rocky, bluffy limestone with areas of dripping springs and coves that are breathtaking.

It has a maximum depth of 210 and an average depth of 62 feet. The lakes historic high level is 710.4 feet msl on Christmas Day, in December 25, 1991. Its historic low level is 614.2 feet msl on August 14 1951. Lake lovers were not happy campers in 1951, you can bet. Actually, Lake Travis was created by the impounding of the Colorado River by the construction of Mansfield Dam in 1937- 41. The dam is 266.41 feet high. The length is 7,089.39 feet. At the base it is 213 feet thick. The Dam has 24 floodgates at 4,770 cfs each. Each floodgate is 8.5 feet in diameter.
