- Located 9 miles into the Colorado Bend State Park is Lake Buchanan. The State Park prides itself on the lake's fishing and swimming opportunities. Moreover, when Lake Buchanan is near normal levels, the river is navigable from the park's boat ramp all the way to the lake, approximately 10 miles. This is a trip on slow moving water through the beautiful canyon lands of the Colorado.
Facilities at the lake include a fish-cleaning table and a boat ramp.
