About Lake Livingston
Second-Largest in Texas

Lake Livingston, coming in at just under 130 square miles, is one of the largest lakes in Texas. Located in the Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity, and Walker Counties in Texas, there is an opportunity for everyone.

The lake is on the Trinity River, spans 39 miles long, is seven miles at the widest point, has an average depth of 23 feet, and has been called a "Water Wonderland."

There are several cities and communities around the lake, including Livingston, Blanchard, Coldspring, Huntsville, Onalaska, Point Blank, Riverside, and Trinity. It is only an hour and a half to Houston and around three and a half hours to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area.

Due to Lake Livingston’s size, most amenities necessary are available around the lake. George Bush Intercontinental Airport is 66.7 miles away for easy travel, and Huntsville Memorial Hospital is 26.3 miles away for close medical care.

Lake Activities

On a day on the lake, you could do anything including swimming, fishing, and kayaking. The campgrounds will even allow you to rent a kayak.

However, due to the invasive Zebra Mussels, you must clean, dry, and drain your boat before putting it in another body of water to prevent the spread of the mussels.

Fishing from the Lake

At Lake Livingston, crappies are active in the spring and early summer, while bluegill and channel catfish are along the shoreline year-round. Visitors can fish for white, striped, and largemouth bass from spring through fall. White bass is especially plentiful, and the fish grow quite large.

Around the Lake

Those looking for a lakeside retreat can visit the Lake Livingston State Park. Here, visitors can swim, boat, hike, camp, picnic, bike, geocache, and enjoy the scenic views.

For any residents of age, the family-owned and operated Teysha Vineyard in Huntsville is a must-see. Take a walk through the grapevines, sit out on the patio, or relax on a couch with a glass of wine.

If you're interested in learning about and purchasing local honey, Rudy's Honey will serve those needs. Their bee farm in Livingston is free of agricultural sprays and sources the sweetness from Southeast Texas wildflowers. Take a tour of the facility or grab some products like soap, candles, or honey straws.

Excellent Location for Lake Life

Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or waterfront property, Lake Livingston is an excellent choice.
