Outdoor Recreation

Temple is surrounded by some of the most beautiful country in the Lone Star State. Lush green prairie land gives way to scenic Belton Lake, but not before colliding with gorgeous wooded land. This diverse landscape offers the perfect habitat for many different species of wildlife! 

Start by relaxing on one of the cleanest lakes in Texas, Belton Lake. This lake is a favorite spot for water sports, fishing tournaments, camping, picnics or just relaxing. In addition, Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA) provides fun with paddle boats, jet skis, a water slide, cabins and even a rustic lodge. For hikers, rock climbers, photographers and bird watchers, Miller Springs Nature Center is sure to provide a breath of fresh air!
