Lake Georgetown is a typical highland type reservoir with steeply sloping banks covered with limestone rock in sizes ranging from gravel to boulders. The dam impounds 1,297 surface acres of the San Gabriel River in the Hill Country of central Texas. As one travels up the reservoir, the water clarity changes from clear to slightly stained. A moderate amount of standing timber can be found in the backs of coves and along some shoreline areas, but most cover/structure is in the form of rock ledges and boulders. Water fluctuations are common and prevent aquatic vegetation from establishing itself. Most of the shoreline is owned by the USACE. As a result, private boat docks and boat houses are not present along the water's edge.
Fishing, hunting, boating, camping, and hiking are activities enjoyed on and around Georgetown Lake.
