Marble Falls is situated on a chain of seven beautiful lakes and nestled between wildflower covered hills in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
Adam Rankin Johnson, a former Indian fighter, founded Marble Falls in 1887. Previously a Burnet County surveyor, confederate general Johnson dreamed of building a town powered by the gorgeous Colorado River. His dream came true. Today, the original site of the town is buried beneath Lake Marble Falls.
Marble Falls has beautiful city parks and an outdoor amphitheater that is a perfect setting for community events. There are two RV campgrounds nearby, and area marine facilities offer rentals, sales and service. There are dozens of LCRA and state parks along the waterways, along with unique jewels that feature everything from caverns to delicate ecosystems.
Marble Falls sits at the middle of the largest chain of lakes in Texas – the Highland Lakes of Lake Buchanan, Inks Lake, Lake LBJ, Lake Marble Falls, Lake Travis, and Lake Austin. With hundreds of miles of waterway, they offer every type of lake-lover’s recreational activity.
Hunting, fishing, and camping activities are popular here. Native game fish abound in lakes and streams. Fall and winter hunting seasons offer plentiful wildlife, and excellent wing shooting of migratory and native game birds.
Blanco State Park, a 110-acre park located in the scenic Blanco River Valley, lies largely within the city limits. It offers camping, trailer sites, picnicking, screened shelters, group pavilion, fishing, swimming, pedal boats, a children’s play area, rest rooms, and showers.
