A lot of potential buyers interested in Lakefront real estate contact me that have never heard of Lake McQueeney, Lake Dunlap, Lake Placid, or Meadow Lake. The aerial maps of these lakes throw people off. They assume that since they look like rivers you cannot run a waterski/wakeboard boat on these lakes. Quite the opposite, these lakes are perfect for waterski and wakeboard boats under 24’. As I have mentioned on this site before, the river style of these lakes really is the perfect recipe for a great waterski/wakeboard lakes: (1) there is typically always a straight away blocked by the wind since the river/lake bends in multiple locations (2) the lakes are plenty wide enough to support multiple boats (3) on the upper part of the lakes the width of the lake force the boats to follow the same lines which prevents the random “chop” you typically see on the open lakes (a common complaint of Lake Conroe, Lake Travis, ext.). Take a look at the aerial video tour below of Lake McQueeney on Memorial Day weekend 2012:
