we came for the first time to camp for the weekend because of the lake reviews. They were right about the water it was beautiful! However, for a family of four with the youngest being 6 it cost $42.00 to camp for one night! The camp site does not give you easy access to water, you hear people and cars... More

We spend a lot of time here during the summers and it's always a blast! The water is very clear compared to other lakes and it is just a good size lake. We spend weekends with family including little ones and just have a great time. Everyone is usually friendly and the local stores have a lot of supplies you... More

I was shocked at the price. We didn't have a boat and just came here to swim and picnic. To be clear there is no easy access to the water. At $10 a person there should be beach and a burger shack and umbrellas etc. Don't go without a speed boat.

This is a beautiful lake and close to Lubbock! The water is clean. It is big enough and not too crowded. Highly recommended!

Not a whole lot going on, and that's perfect for me. Cleaner water than BSL, much quieter than BSL, and the campgrounds are kept up better.

For a West Texas Lake, Alan Henry is larger than you would expect and the water is prettier clear compared to older lakes in Texas. The public boat ramp is a bit steep but workable. The dam side is wide and can get rough in the wind and the Gobbler Creek side is a bit narrow but well protected from... More
