About Lake Conroe
Check Out Montgomery and Conroe, Texas!
The Houston area's most popular recreational resorts are located only fifty miles north of downtown Houston. With the advent of "home offices", the area has exploded with new life for primary residences.
So close to the big city, yet nestled near the piney woods of the Sam Houston National Forest, Lake Conroe is described by many as the most beautiful man-made lake in Texas. Because it is located near the county seat (Conroe) and convenient to Houston by way of I-45 and FM 149, the lake is easily accessible to millions of people.
Completed in 1973, the 22,000-acre lake has become one of the largest, most active freshwater lakes in the state. A popular site for swimming, boating, fishing, and sailing. Lake Conroe is rich in history but filled with modern facilities and attractions. Full service resorts, hotels, and camping facilities operated year-round offering a variety of recreational activities, festivals, and holiday events.
