Lake Buchanan is the oldest of all the lakes in the Highland Lakes chain. That means the communities surrounding it are well established, each with its own personality and charm. There are lots of reasons to consider Lake Buchanan homes for sale when you’re looking for your perfect lakefront property.
Lake Buchanan boasts almost 124 miles of shoreline, so there is plenty of room for activities on the lake and a wide variety of living and recreational space on the shoreline. Just up the Colorado River from Inks Lake and Lake LBJ, Lake Buchanan is not a constant-level lake like Lake Travis.
It is, however, deep and wide enough (30 miles long and as far across as 5 miles in some areas) that there is never a danger of the water levels dropping too low or rising too high to allow for a good time either in the water or on the shoreline.

Living In the Lake Buchanan Area
Lake Buchanan has a significant tourist presence, with much of the lakefront property lined with campgrounds, RV parks, rental properties, and recreational areas. That is not to say that the area does not have plenty of permanent residences for people who want to enjoy the tremendous views and lakefront lifestyle year round. Nor does the presence of tourists during the busy season detract from the benefits of life on this lake. In fact, many residents enjoy the vibrancy that seasonal guests bring. Lake Buchanan is the second largest in the Highland Lakes chain of lakes which leaves plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the lake.
The area surrounding Lake Buchanan offers some of the most affordable real estate of all the Highland Lakes. Private residences range in price from the mid 300’s to nearly $2,000,000.

This lake is a popular wakesurfing lake thanks to its deep waters. The deeper the water the larger the wave. It is also a favorite destination for fishing, but it also has enough room for you to find a quiet place to fish even if kayakers, swimmers, and other water sport enthusiasts are out in large numbers. City life is not far away. Austin is just 60 miles away, San Antonio 95 miles away, and for access to everything you could ever need, Dallas/Fort Worth is less than 200 miles away.
