Lake Marble Falls
In the Highland Lakes of Central Texas

There are RV Parks, bed & breakfast inns, motels and cabins available for rent. You will find plenty of shopping in Marble Falls. There are antique stores, gift shops, a WalMart Super Center, a large grocery store, several fast food restaurants and much more.
