ABOUT THE LAKE:

Richland Chambers, being Texas 3rd largest inland lake and the youngest in Texas (1989). Richland Chambers has an average water depth of 25 feet and a maximum depth of 82 feet and 330 miles of shoreline. It offers wide open recreational areas and protected coves for recreational boaters, skiers and family fun! Sailing enthusiasts enjoy the large East to West expanse on the Richland arm and Richland Chambers is reported to be the largest (inland) sailing basin in Texas.

Fishermen have long enjoyed the excellent fishing and habitat at this Texas lake as evidenced by the annual bass fishing tournaments held here each year. Regular stocking by Texas Parks and Wildlife has contributed to some of the finest fishing in the state with strong populations of crappie, sand bass, hybrid bass, blue cat and yellow catfish.

Being located near the Trinity River (a natural flyway for water fowl) offers a diverse population of ducks, geese and teal for hunters while pelicans and other birds including the majestic Bald Eagle are abundant to the delight of birdwatchers and waterfront lake house owners throughout the lake area!

During low water times, boats can still be brought to the house. We have a nice sandy beach and buoys that boats can be tied to. Current water levels can be found here: http://richlandchambers.uslakes.info/Level.asp

Why Karen McGrath chose Richland Chambers Lake

Richland Chambers lake is one of the best secrets in Texas. It's the 3rd largest, newest and most unpopulated lake in Texas. This lake has so little traffic that it makes a perfect retreat for boating, skiing, or fishing.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful location on the lake. Perfect for swimming, boating, fishing, and just enjoying the beautiful view.

I wouldn't rent again

  • 2 of 5

The house was fabulous!! The problem was the lake and wind/storms. The boat lift was locked so our boat was in the slip in the water, our jet skis were also in the water near the shore. A storm rolled in and beat the boat to $700 worth of damage before we were able to hook it up outside the slip in water over a 6 ft man's head. The next night winds came in with even higher waves. It was just too stressful.

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie. I am so sorry that the freak storm popped up and that you boat got damaged. As I mentioned to you via email, Its really unfortunate that you didn't see the instructions in our guidebook where we detail how to tie the boats up so that hopefully this doesn't happen. We rarely have storms like that but as in any lake, they can come quickly which is why we have those instructions based on years of experience and advise from full timers at the lake. We wish you guys the best of luck and hope the storm didn't turn you off if beautiful Richland Chambers permanately

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was amazing! The house was clean and well kept with a nicely stocked kitchen. The lake has a sandy bottom in front of the house which was great for swimming. I would highly recommend renting this house. You won't be disappointed!

Great location and very clean

  • 4 of 5

Besides the few items that were broken for whatever reason, the overall stay was great. The owner is great at communicating and is quick to respond to questions. The house needs a new grill, the boat lift was broken and the chair at the dock was broken. Other than that, it was a great time and a beautiful house and location.

Beautiful accommodations on a beautiful lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our rental was fabulous! The home was well maintained and just as advertised. We all loved the boat house and we caught a ton of catfish. The granddaughters were well entertained. We were thankful that the fishing was good from the boat house, the lake was really choppy the weekend we were there.

The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were super comfortable. We would certainly stay there again.

Birthday Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 plus two teens spent 3 great days at this wonderful house. Room for all plus some to stretch out and the house is well equipped for fun. We celebrated a 5th birthday fishing, tubing, skiing, and enjoying the beach. The house is on a large calm cove which was awesome for all water sports and great photo ops of the action from the boathouse. No issues using the buoy to anchor right offshore for our stay. The water is low, bad for the boathouse but created a nice sandy beach for the smaller kids to play on. Fishing is really good from the beach and close by on the lake: catfish, sand bass, and bluegill. There is a great yard and we enjoyed the back patio and hot tub each night before settling inside for movies. The kitchen is very well done and we enjoyed cooking together in it for our crew. The furnishings are comfortable and the house is well decorated. I enjoyed seeing "Love Deeply" each morning before getting our day started! The neighbors were nice and helpful with local knowledge. Karen and family have created a very nice place to stay, Thank You.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

WOW! There are no other words for this property and the incredible time we had. Our group uses VRBO each year for our annual friends get away and this has been our favorite by far. The pictures and description are exact, so you really know what to expect. We loved the den and when we weren't in the water, we were all in the den enjoying the spectacular view. Just as we commented on how great that room would be during a rain storm, Mother Nature gave us a quick demonstration and it was beautiful. There was more than enough space for our three adult couples to be comfortable without feeling crowded. We used the kitchen for all our meals and found it so user friendly. The waffle maker was like a bonus! The home is gorgeous and the area is nicely secluded. The neighbors were friendly and made us feel welcome. We were specifically looking for a private experience without a lot of people (like an overcrowded beach) and we got exactly that. At some times we were the only ones out there and it was heaven. None of us wanted to leave after our four days there, because we just barely had a taste of the "good life". Who knew this best kept secret was just down the road.
