News & Alerts

Arkansas Bend Park is temporarily closed for the construction of major park improvements. Improvements include restoring and updating the day use area, improving the boat ramp and expanding the parking areas, constructing new trails and campsites, and adding other amenities and their associated infrastructure. The estimated reopening date for the park is Fall of 2018.

In 2011, Travis County voters approved $9,443,500 in park bonds for the design and development of Arkansas Bend Park on Lake Travis, Phase I. In 2017, voters approved an additional $5,832,750 in park bonds to complete the development the park. Read more on Arkansas Bend Park improvements update. Posted February 2018.


One of the most isolated and untouched parks in Travis County, this peaceful 323-acre park lies on the north shore of Lake Travis near the community of Lago Vista and combines many of the best qualities of other Lake Travis parks. The parks' two miles of shoreline offer opportunities for hiking, fishing, camping, picnicking and lake access via an excellent boat ramp. Several inviting, shaded picnic and camping areas are situated along a bluff above a gently sloping, rocky waterfront.


  • barbecue grills
  • boat ramp
  • nature/hiking trails
  • picnic tables
  • primitive campsites
  • restrooms


Overnight camping is available on a first-come, first-served basis. No reservations are required. The gravel bars off the tip of the park's peninsula are popular anchorages for day and overnight sailors and boaters.

Overnight campers should be aware that Arkansas Bend Park offers primitive camping only. No water or improved facilities are currently available.

Ground fires are permitted as seasonal conditions allow, but visitors are required to bring in their own firewood. Cutting or gathering of firewood, including kindling, is not allowed.

In an effort to allow all park visitors to enjoy their stay at Arkansas Bend, we ask that all overnight campers arrive by midnight and keep vehicle traffic to a minimum after dark. Quiet hours are enforced between the hours of 10 pm and 7 am. All radios and generators must be turned off at this time.

Special Notes

Glass containers and fireworks are prohibited in all Travis County Parks.
Public display of consumption of alcohol is prohibited.
