Exclamation Brazos River

I have always heard the Brazos is the king of the wakeboard waters in Texas but have never hauled everything down there to take advantage. I am trying to plan a trip and want to find the right area. We want to be able to wakeboard and still be able to find a sandbar that there is a decent party going on. I have been told the waters outside of Tin Top would probably be the best bet, is this right? Are there campsites, cabins for rent, hotels close to there? Does anyone recommend elsewhere?
Also, if I were to stay on Lake Granbury, is there a dam or anything that would prevent me from taking the boat up the river to Tin Top from there?

Any help would be great, thanks.

Sucks-Too rough-Way too many tubers, and the water is very deep! Stay away!

Check out the Secret Spot video. Tin Top not as nice but part of the Brazos River. Currently My Secret Spot is 10' low I don't advise a trip there without a trustworthy guide.

I do agree with snork...

You have to watch the river water levels...

Last few years, it has not been an issue, we had LOTS of rain...

This year, so far has been kind-of dry...

As for drift wood, yea, but usally after a very heavy rain, not an issue a week or so later...

I've been to Tin Top about 4 times, and always had perfect conditions.....

No Hotels, Cabins, or camp sites on the water....

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I understand that some know the area well. Guided tours part of your resume Mark?
