About the lampasas river


The Lampasas River is a 75-mile-long river located in central Texas. The river has a rich history dating back to the Comanche and Tonkawa tribes. It was later used by settlers for agricultural purposes. Today, the river is used for recreational activities such as fishing, kayaking, and swimming. The hydrology of the Lampasas River is impacted by a number of reservoirs and dams, including the Stillhouse Hollow Reservoir and the Belton Lake. These reservoirs help to regulate the water flow and provide water for irrigation and other uses. The Lampasas River basin is also an important agricultural area, producing crops such as cotton, corn, and wheat.
