Of course, we, who live at Lake Whitney, have known this all along. But it is still a well-kept secret up in the DFW metroplex and down in Houston. Property and homes at Lake Whitney are much more affordable than other lakes around Texas.
It is the rural environment of this lake that makes it most appealing for weekend homes — and for those who can move away from the city and enjoy a quieter, peaceful way of life. Lake Whitney is uncrowded — not overrun with homes, boats and traffic.
Best Outdoor Recreation in Texas
According to TexasOutside.com, Lake Whitney is the 4th largest lake in Texes — 23,500 acres with 225 miles of shoreline. “Lake Whitney offers some of the best outdoor recreation in Texas with excellent lakefront camping and lodging, good fishing, nearby hunting and perfect conditions for boating. The clear water, scenic bluffs, protected coves and unusually smooth water (primarily due to light boat traffic) are perfect for boaters.”
Cleanest Lakes in Texas.
USA Today lists Lake Whitney among the cleanest lakes in Texas. “Lake Whitney is one of the lesser-known lakes in Texas, which is hard to believe considering how beautiful it is….this is the perfect sport for swimming, camping, fishing and other lake activities.” March 15, 2018

Overview of Lake Whitney
“Lake Whitney is just west of Hillsboro on I-35 and is a very scenic lake with limestone cliffs, rolling hills, and clear blue water. Lake Whitney was authorized by Congress for the primary purpose of flood control, water conservation, and hydroelectric power generation. Construction was completed by the Corp of Engineers in 1951 at a cost of $41 million. A total of 17,656 square miles of the Brazos River’s watershed feeds into Whitney. Lake Whitney offers some of the best outdoor recreation in Texas with excellent lake front camping and lodging, good fishing, nearby hunting, and perfect conditions for boating. The clear water, scenic bluffs, protected coves, and unusually smooth water (primarily due to light boat traffic) are perfect for boaters. “

Sometimes folks think that a listing agent or prominent realty name from a nearby metroplex will help their home sell faster. Some may think the “locals” are not savvy enough to do the job. Not necessarily so. Look local first.
What “Big City” Agents Don’t Know
They probably do not know YOUR housing market as well as they may know their city market. If you are in the Lake Whitney market, you can be pretty sure the city agents don’t get out here much.
Has your agent been to your home? Have they toured White Bluff and/or the general Lake Whitney home areas? Do they stay on top of the progress being made at White Bluff?
Has he or she ever listed, personally shown or sold a home at Lake Whitney — driven around or talked to people here?
Do they understand why the Lake Whitney market is unique and quite different from other North Texas lakes?
Will that agent personally bring potential buyers down here to see your home? Or will they try to get someone local to do the job they should be doing?
Will there even be a lockbox on your door — or will it be a common metroplex type of system that agents must pay to use in order to show your home? (That has happened here and the home was never shown until Emily Morris called the metroplex agent to tell them why it was not being shown. Turned out that agent didn’t want to make the trip to Lake Whitney to put on a lockbox — she had Emily take care of it for her! Is that the kind of agent you want for your home?)
