Let us tell you why you should be considering a property with a view of the Lake Ray Roberts, or right down on the beach. First, Lake Ray Roberts is smartly located only 12 miles northeast of the community of Denton and that means you are only a short one hour drive from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. You can be relocated to the best nature has to offer and enjoy the outdoors very conveniently on the weekend. Or, if you choose to live in this wonderland, it is only a short drive to all the finer things a large metropolitan area has to offer.
Amenities of Lake Ray Roberts
Lake Ray Roberts may have originally been constructed just as a reservoir to supply water for Cooke, Grayson, and Denton, but now it is much than its original function, having been transformed into a multi-use recreational area. The lake itself is comprised of over 29,000-acres and provides you with ample space for all of your outdoor activities.
If fishing is your pastime, you have largemouth bass, crappie, white bass or catfish to choose from, right from your front door. Lake Ray Roberts provides you with access to a marina to launch your boat or spend your time enjoying other water sports. There is plenty of room to water ski, wakeboard, or simply enjoy floating around the lake.
The Lake Ray Roberts state park is a great place to enjoy outdoor living at its finest. With the 20 miles of trails in the Greenbelt Corridor (12 of which are designated for equestrian use) you can explore the wooded banks of the Trinity River’s Elm Fork branch. The Lake Ray Roberts Marina is a full-service marina with boat slips for rent, a restaurant, bait and tackle shop, boat repair facility, shower facilities, and fuel dock. In the Isle du Bois section of the Lake Ray Roberts park, you will find camping areas, bird watching, and additional hiking trails. The staff of the Isle du Bois unit hosts activities in the park, such as stargazing parties, campfire programs that include storytelling and discussions of natural history, and bird watching excursions.
The areas surrounding Lake Ray Roberts
The areas around Lake Ray Roberts include the towns of Pilot Point and Tioga. Both of these areas are known for possessing some of the most lavish and extravagant homes in all of northeast Texas. In fact, there are entire developments in the Pilot Point area that feature some of these incredible mansions on large, lush tracts of land. Many of these Lake Ray Roberts acreage homes include existing horse barns and riding/training facilities, perfectly suited for a horse property. With the close access to the Lake Ray Roberts horse trails it is easy to see why so many people flock to live in the area.
However, the word is not out to everyone yet. You still have the ability to get in on the ground floor, as there are still currently undeveloped tracts of land up for sale. This provides you with the perfect opportunity to create your ideal home or weekend retreat. Building on your own land enables you to create your own vision of a lakeside paradise.
Types of property available
There are still many diverse options available for purchase in the Lake Ray Roberts area. There are tracts available with gorgeous hilltop views of the lake. These are particularly beautiful to watch the sun’s reflection bounce off the water in the early morning. However, if being down as close to the action as possible on the lakefront is what you seek, there are also waterfront lots, and lots adjoining Corps of Engineers land or parklands. So depending on where you are situated, you can build backed up to land that you know will never be developed. This should provide you with assurance of a little more privacy and peace and quiet for years to come.
