Fun All Year Round

There are so many things to do and explore in and around Kingsland TX. The community sits perfectly along the Colorado River and the crystal clear waters of Lake LBJ. The city also straddles the border between Burnet and Llano counties. Since both Lake LBJ and nearby Inks Lake are considered constant level lakes, they stay full the entire year when other lakes in Texas dip because of droughts. This means you can enjoy fun water activities no matter the season. Take the family and have some fun on Lake LBJ by visiting the Lake LBJ Yacht Club to rent a boat. Don’t worry, as this is not your usual snooty country club but a really down to earth place to begin your exploration of the lake.  There is also Granite Beach Waterpark that features a lot of inflatable water toys. It is open on weekends and even on Memorial and Labor Day so there is really no stopping the family fun.

Pop Culture Icon and Local History

Picture of the old Antler's Inn in Kingsland, TX

There is a lot of history here in Kingsland TX. For example there is the Antler’s Inn that was constructed way back in 1901 as a resort for railroad workers and weary travelers. You can also find on the property the actual house that was used in the classic 1974 slasher-horror movie, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”  The house has been updated with a fresh layer of paint and it does not look as scary as it once was in the movies but if you listen closely you might just hear the faint sound of a distant chainsaw.

Great Food

Kingsland TX offers many restaurants that serve authentic Texas cuisine. The Antlers Inn where the horror classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre was also filmed serves sumptuous steaks and must try omelettes for breakfast.  If you feel hungry after swimming at the lake, check out the Hoover Valley Café for some delicious burger or chicken fried steak.  If a view is what you are looking for then check out On The Rocks, a popular homemade Italian restaurant perched on a tall cliff and overlooks the majestic Lake LBJ and the beauty of the Hill Country too.  Have fun listening to live music, awesome board games and a scenic patio.


The community is located at the juncture of the Llano and Colorado rivers, fifteen miles southeast of Llano in east central Llano County. The original name of the city was Kingsville and was named for Martin D. King, who with J.M. Trussell bought the land on which the city stands in 1877. The town was the site of a cotton gin and a fledgling trading center back in the 1880s. Activity and trade increased in the town with the extension of the Austin and Northwestern Railroad to Llano via Kingsville in 1892. By 1901, the town was known as Kingsland with a growing number of  businesses including the Antlers Hotel, constructed by people with interest in the railroad.  A fire in 1922 caused a decline of population and by 1925 it only had 150 residents left.  The Highland Lakes for retirement and recreational businesses helped revive the town and by the mid 1960s it became a regional commercial center. By 1986 it regained its old luster back with the establishment of a number of businesses including a national bank.  In 2000  the population grew to 4,584 people.
