Welcome to Granite Shoals
A small residential community on the shores of Lake Lyndon B. Johnson
Nestled in the heart of Texas Hill Country, along the Colorado River, and tucked on the Eastern shores of Lake Lyndon B. Johnson is the quiet and charming community of Granite Shoals. This residential town was first developed as a lake resort and is often referred to as a “fishing cabin community” due to the abundance of fishing opportunities along the lakes. An assortment of parks along the lake offers plenty of fishing opportunities, among other water activities.
This predominantly residential town is full of charming homes situated along the lake or farther back on large, tree-filled lots. Choose from custom-built homes on the water with private docks for your water crafts, plenty of windows to allow in the natural light and beauty, and quiet serenity, or situate yourself in a traditional Texas-style ranch near one of the 20-plus parks in town. This community offers the best of both worlds and plenty of options for those that call it home.
