Lake Whitney — The Most Gorgeous Texas Lake

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.

  • Lake Whitney tx

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.”

A Houston blogger, MommyPoppins.com, recommends Lake Whitney for family fun. (NOTE: We have plenty of Houston folks who have moved to Lake Whitney and others who have getaway homes here for weekend relaxation.)

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

Google lists Lake Whitney as one of the most scenic swimming lakes in Texas.

White Bluff Resort: Outdoor Activities

You can be as busy as you want at White Bluff — especially if you love the outdoors. Golf, fishing, hunting, bicycling, horseback riding and boating are right out your back door in White Bluff and around Lake Whitney.

Golf.

Two PGA Pro designed courses offer you golf right out your door. The New Course is currently open — cart path only. Since acquiring White Bluff and its amenities from the developer in September 2018, our Property Owners Association (POA) is updating and rebuilding the greens. Temporary greens are being used at this time. The Old Course will also be undergoing a renovation to improve both the greens and the traps. Work is progressing as quickly as possible to get both courses in pristine shape.

Fishing.

Lake Whitney offers unending opportunities for fishing from shore, a personal boat or a guide’s charter. With its own Marina, White Bluff provides an easily accessible boat ramp and marina slips if desired. But there are several other marinas on the lake as well. Boat rentals and guides are available on the lake. Striper is the premier fishing catch on Lake Whitney, but other types of bass, crappie and catfish are waiting for your hook.

Boating.

White Bluff Marina gives boaters a close-to-home boat ramp — at no cost to property owners. Slips are available for lease. Lake Whitney is a quiet, uncrowded lake with 225 miles of shoreline. Fishing boats, pontoons, wave runners and water-ski boats are all welcome. But because of the lake’s size and the limited population on the lake, there is plenty of room for all. White Bluff also offers onsite storage facilities for boats and RVs.

Hunting

Deer, Turkey, Duck and Dove are popular hunting targets around Lake Whitney. Surrounded by Corps of Engineer land, the lake has plentiful hunting grounds. Private ranches around White Bluff may also provide hunting leases. Hunting seasons are available here. Bow and gun are both permitted during particular seasons.

Biking and Hiking

Both mountain biking and hiking are popular within White Bluff Resort and at the Lake Whitney State Park. The park has a number of trails and occasionally competitive biking opportunities. Each May, a Tour de Norway Bike Race begins in nearby Clifton. Within White Bluff, there are nearly 60 miles of roads on which to ride.

Horseback Riding

Whether you own your own horse or want to rent one for a ride, you have choices in White Bluff Resort and around Lake Whitney. Inside White Bluff, we have equestrian properties sized to accommodate both your home and your horses. You may often see residents riding their horses around the Resort. But if you want to board your horse or rent one for a trail ride, you can easily do so. Here are two recommendations.

Hidden Gems in White Bluff

With over 3,500 acres bordering Lake Whitney, White Bluff Resort is far from crowded. It is, in fact, filled with woodlands, ponds, streams and a couple of small interior lakes. The Resort itself — and its casual living environment — is a hidden gem in North Texas. But the Resort has a few hidden gems within its woodlands.

The Resort had been a ranch at one time and it is home to two cemeteries. Take a look at some of the hidden gems of days gone by.
