Under normal conditions, getting a boat into Lake Travis isn’t a problem. Back it down the ramp and get it afloat. The problem is when conditions are abnormal such as in a drought, when water levels are low, or during a flood, when they are too high.

Below are the minimum water levels for launching boats from LCRA ramps on Lake Travis. The Lake is often closed to recreational boaters during severe floods.

Lake Travis can greatly fluctuate during the year. So make sure you check the latest lake level data and the information below when planning a boat trip.
