How Lake Travis Marinas Adapt to Low Water Conditions

Lake Travis has a variable water level that depends on the amount of rainfall the watershed receives — and the amount of water the LCRA discharges downstream at Mansfield Dam. During the 2013-2015 drought, the level fell to 626’ above Main Sea Level (MSL) — and this may be a common occurrence in the future. The ability to accommodate low water levels is an important factor to consider when comparing Lake Travis marinas.

Whenever the water level falls to 640′ above MSL, many Lake Travis marinas begin to have problems. As the water recedes, there is less room for the docks, and they have to be crowded together. This is especially the case for marina facilities located in steep canyons or shallow creeks. The crowding makes it more difficult to get in and out of the boat slips. Cramped conditions increase the likelihood of collisions and groundings. The shallow water and close quarters are especially troublesome for larger powerboats or sailboats with a deep draft.

As the Lake gets lower, some Lake Travis marinas run out of room; so they disconnect their docks from the shore, and move them out into the main body of the Lake. Their customers need to wait for a shuttle boat to get from the shore to the docks. And there is no electricity or clean water at the boat slips. Under these conditions, their docks are well below the level of the parking lot, restrooms and other marina facilities — necessitating a long steep climb (with gear and guests) up and down steep ramps and stairways. These kind of challenges at our competitors’ Lake Travis marinas take a lot of fun out of the boating experience.

Most Convenient Marina on Lake Travis – West Beach

In contrast with these less well-situated Lake Travis marinas, West Beach boat slips are always accessible — regardless of the water level. Our gently sloping site on the north end of Hudson Bend enables us to keep our docks in deep water with plenty of maneuvering room for the boats. When the water level recedes, we just move the docks out into deeper water.

Even when the Lake is low, our flat terrain enables members and guests to drive down to the water’s edge to park. Our docks remain connected to the shore — along with all utilities. We retain the same dock spacing, with plenty of maneuvering room and easy access to the main channel. Our customers have the same short, flat walk to their boats. It’s still easy for West Beach Marina members to carry their gear to and from the docks. Your crew and guests will be a lot happier than the folks at other Lake Travis marinas or boat clubs.

No problem parking, no boat shuttles, and no steep stairs to climb with your gear.

We’re just a short drive from Austin TX and the communities of Cedar Park, Lakeway, Steiner Ranch and West Lake Hills. Call today to learn more about our boat slips, facilities and happy boaters!
