Lake Conroe

On the west fork of the San Jacinto River just seven miles west of Conroe, lies a beautiful 22,000-acre lake with water sports, fishing, skiing, sailing, and boating. Three lovely resorts with spectacular views of the sunsets over Lake Conroe include the La Torretta Lake Resort & Spa with 445 all-suite guest rooms, more than 70,000 square feet of meeting space and an on-site ice skating rink are available for family fun or business meetings. A number of inviting local campgrounds and restaurants with views of the water all dot the pristine shores of this vacation haven.

Lake Creek Greenway




The Lake Creek Greenway is a beautiful place to take a walk or spend the afternoon. It connects the Cooks Branch Conservancy, Nature Preserve and Montgomery County Lake Creek Preserve and Jones State Forest in order to preserve green space where animals and plants can spread out and travel freely. Lake Creek and its associated watersheds contain some of the few water bodies in the area that meet national standards for contact recreation and aquatic life. Situated in one of the fastest developing parts of the state, these bottomlands and riparian areas offer local recreational and ecological services that are important to community members, local wildlife and the region’s ecosystem.
