The dam helps to regulate the water level of Lake Austin and Lady Bird Lake that travel through Austin. Lake Travis is the largest man-made lake in Texas and it is a blast in the summer time. However, Austin is so warm most of the year, many enjoy it in spring and early fall as well!

Lake Travis provides those who love the water a place to boat, jet ski, swim, fish, picnic, and camp. Lady Bird Lake, which travels through Downtown Austin, is also a perfect place to canoe or fish! There are also trails lining both sides of Lady Bird Lake which are always full of joggers on Ann & Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail getting a morning run in lakeside. Don't forget to watch the bats at dusk! The bridges downtown gather a daily crowd to watch the massive swarms of bats taking to the air.
