Fun in the Sun: Burger's Lake

As a kid in California, my family was at the beach practically every weekend during the summer. I wish I could say this means I’m some awesome surfer chick, but I’m not. However, I do love the water.

My husband and I have been on the lookout for somewhere we could take the kids that was reminiscent of our time at the beach. There are tons of lakes out here, but for whatever reason, we haven’t found a good spot to just go and spend a day.

But that changes this summer. We are loading up all four kiddos, and trying out the different lakes in the Fort Worth area.

Our first lake adventure was Burger’s Lake.

Burger’s Lake, while not really a lake, was a blast. They have a one-acre lake with various slides, diving boards, and even a trapeze. The deeper areas of the lake are roped off so you know how far the kids can go out, and you can tell them where to stop.

There are two sandy areas, plenty of grass, tons of picnic areas, dressing rooms, restrooms, a snack bar, and a little play area for smaller children.

It’s a little pricey to get in, $12 per adult and $5 for every child over one, but the lake and surrounding areas are immaculate, there are lifeguards throughout the water, and there is no alcohol or pets allowed on the premises.

Life guards were the only ones in the water during the safety check.

The absolute best part of Burger’s Lake is their safety check. On busy weekends they have everyone clear the water and return to their parties. This gives all parties a chance to make sure that everyone is present and safe. After about ten minutes, and getting the thumbs up, everyone can return to the water to enjoy their day.

We plan to check out more of the lakes and find some good spots to spend the day as a family during the hot Texas summer. You can be sure I’ll share those adventures here!

Do you have a favorite lake you like to spend the day at with your family?


  1. Can’t wait to try out Burger’s Lake. We have neighbors who have houses at Lake Granbury and we want to try that out as well!
