Speegleville Park

Waco, Texas

Overview

Speegleville Park is perched on the south end of a scenic cove of Waco Lake. The park provides outdoor recreation options like boating, jet skiing, fishing, swimming and bird watching.

Recreation

The main lake shoreline has a large amount of submerged timber, which typically holds fish year-round. Anglers will find plenty of catfish, crappie, large and smallmouth bass as well as sunfish. At least 51 species of fish inhabit the lake's waters, and a record flathead catfish weighed in at a whopping 59.5 pounds.

A four-lane boat ramp helps visitors enjoy the lake.

Facilities

The park includes two screened shelters along with 30 campsites with water and electric hookups.

Natural Features

Waco Lake, located in central Texas within Waco city limits, boasts 79,000 acre-feet of water, providing irrigation and drinking water to residents of the Waco area. The lake is primarily fed by the Bosque River, which runs for 115 miles through central Texas.

Nearby Attractions

Horseback riding, hiking and biking can be done on the 20-mile Lacy Point Hiking and Biking Trail. The trail is accessible from the Lacy Point boat ramp, which is a short drive around the cove.
