Take Full Advantage of Lake Conroe Living!
With so many fun outdoor experiences in and around the area, it’s easy to see why so many from across Texas and the country are relocating to Conroe to buy a new home. One of the most prominent local outdoor attractions nearby is Lake Conroe. Created in 1973 as an alternate water source for the city of Houston, it now contains over 22,000 acres of surface water and 157 miles of shoreline. Plenty of room to have an awesome day on the lake!
Here’s just some of the great family-friendly activities you can do on Lake Conroe:
Go Fishing – Lake Conroe is a bass angler’s dream and has hosted numerous tournaments. Crappie is also plentiful, and the lake is a year-round hotspot for catfish.

Go Boating – With dozens of marinas around the lake, you won’t have any trouble finding the perfect boat to rent. Pontoons, jet skis, wave runners, kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, stand-up paddle boats and more are available for your day on the lake. Or if you wish to own your boating experience, a selection of new & pre-owned boats is available along with a variety of docking and storage options.
