Welcome to Lake Travis, Texas
Lake Travis is a sixty-five-mile-long lake on the Colorado River in southern Burnet and western Travis counties. Early inhabitants in the Lake Travis area date back to the mid 1700’s, when European explorers first made contact with the Comanche, Lipan Apache, Tonkawa, and Jumano Indians. The first true settlements came later however, when Travis County was created and Austin became the Texas capital in 1839.
Even long before the first settlements, the very first humans to inhabit what is now Travis County probably arrived as the last Ice Age was drawing to a close more than 11,000 years ago. Hundreds of archaeological sites throughout the area show that a human presence was here in prehistoric times. So if you like to dig for fossils, Lake Travis might be a place you want to check out.
