Your guide to Falcon Lake Estates

All About Falcon Lake Estates

Located along the Falcon International Reservoir on the United States-Mexico border, the small town of Falcon Lake Estates is home to some of the best bass fishing in southern Texas. Its main attraction is the reservoir, commonly referred to as Falcon Lake, which lies along the Rio Grande and covers 84,000 acres. Folks from all over the state flock here to enjoy boating, water-skiing, and fishing. Fish cleaning stations and barbecue pits allow you to prepare and cook your catch while enjoying the sounds of the many bird species that frequent the area. Around Falcon Lake, you’ll find rolling hills covered in cacti, wild olive, persimmon, and native grasses that provide a habitat for the area’s diverse wildlife. A short trip over the Falcon Reservoir Bridge lands you in the town of Zapata and its additional dining and entertainment options.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Falcon Lake Estates

There is no bad time to stay in one of the Falcon Lake cabins, though spring and fall offer warm and pleasant weather, making those seasons perfect for enjoying outdoor activities on or off the water. If you plan to fish, the winter months are the best to catch catfish and largemouth bass. However, the weather can get chilly, so be sure to pack a warm layer. If you come during December, you will experience boats twinkling with holiday lights during the Falcon Lake Christmas Boat Parade. The summer months typically experience hot temperatures and relatively high humidity, so come prepared to cool off with a dip in Falcon Lake.
