Amistad National Recreation Area
Just 175 miles drive from San Antonio, straddling the Mexican and American border, lies a true gem in the desert, Lake Amistad. With over 850 miles of shoreline and 68,000 acres of sparkling water, it's one of the largest and most popular lakes in Texas. For houseboaters, Amistad may very well be one of the friendliest. In fact, the name Amistad means friendship in Spanish.
Amistad National Recreation Area offers countless outdoor adventures for everyone. Lake Amistad boasts some of the best lake snorkeling and scuba in the state, the best bass fishing in the world, and one of the largest collections of archaeological sites anywhere. The calm, aqua-blue water is also helped out by two gushing underwater springs, Indian Springs and Good Enough Springs - which add over 2 million gallons of spring water to the lake every hour.
If you're a serious bass fisherman, you already know that Lake Amistad offers some of the best bass fishing in the world. Considered under-fished now for many years, as well as the recent increase in catch-and-release, Amistad is currently enjoying excellent stocks of America's most popular game fish, Large Mouth Bass, but also the hard-fighting Striped Bass, Crappie, and the popular Sunfish are plentiful. Because of the excellent fishing, people come from all over to participate in the many fishing tournaments year round.
