Travis County Parks
News & Alerts
Bob Wentz Park generally reaches capacity on holiday weekends. In order to prevent overcrowding and to promote an enjoyable visitor experience, when capacity is reached the park is closed for the remainder of the day to all incoming traffic, including pedestrians.
Located in the basin area of Lake Travis in the scenic Hill Country of central Texas, Bob Wentz Park is a favorite location for water sports. The park's facilities and close proximity to Austin (approximately one-half hour's drive from downtown) make it attractive for picnicking, swimming, windsurfing, sailing, and scuba diving.
The shoreline areas (including a sandy peninsula known as "The Point") are heavily used, while an adjacent 150-acre tract is maintained as a natural area. The park includes a sand volleyball court, a shoreline walking path, a boat ramp, and a pavilion available for rent.

The Bob Wentz Pavilion: The pavilion has an outstanding view of Lake Travis with windows and French doors on all sides. There is a covered walkway around the perimeter and plenty of trees for shade and privacy. There are several six-foot long tables with about 20-25 chairs. The pavilion can accommodate about 40 people. The pavilion has a ceiling fan, electrical outlets, a fireplace, (users must bring their own firewood) and a sink with running water. Note: There is no air conditioning in the pavilion. The pavilion is wheelchair accessible with parking nearby.
Reservation for the pavilion are required. Call our headquarters at (512) 854-PARK (7275) Monday through Friday 8:30am - 4:30pm to check on availability; however, no reservations are taken by phone. Pavilion fees may be paid by mail or in person. 700 Lavaca, 5th Floor Ste 540, Austin, TX 78701
