Scenic View Motel & RV Park

Welcome to the perfect getaway, Scenic View Motel, Marina & RV Park in Lone Star, Texas.

Established in the mid-1940s, this property has been a hidden jewel for nearly eighty years.

Lone Star Lake is definitely off the beaten path. Through the years, the lake has retained its peaceful beauty and it remains a great place to “get away from it all”.

We moved from the Dallas area in 1998 and nothing has been the same since.  We enjoy life, our family, and nature.  Here, we have found a little piece of heaven on earth and are eager to share it with you, your family, and friends.

Aren’t you ready for a break from your busy life?  Isn’t it time to relax and have some fun?”
~ Kim & Jim Sly, Owners

Lone Star Lake is a great recreation lake. You can have a terrific time fishing, swimming, water skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, riding a jet ski, cruising the lake on a barge or in a boat, or just sitting on the bank enjoying the beauty of the tall pine trees and beautiful scenery.

In addition, almost everyone who stays here agrees, this lake has the most incredible sunsets that you have ever seen.


Enjoy Your Stay

Our property includes over 100 yards of shoreline, a large boat dock, a smaller fishing dock, a swimming area, and two boat ramps. We have a variety of cooking areas as well as outdoor games. You can explore the lake with our rental pontoon boat or kayaks. This is such a fun place to stay with all the outside activities that are available. 

Rustic Cabin

Relaxation is a breeze in our rustic cabin! With amazing views of the lake, the cozy smell of pine, and all the comforts of home, you won’t want to leave.

Sit on the porch or pop a cold one by the fire and watch the beautiful sunset after a day of fishing and grillin’!

The rustic cabin is just a few steps from the patio area and the scenic overlook.

Marina & Lake Activities

This is a great fishing lake. It receives very little fishing pressure so the fish population is strong. The good fishing has resulted in numerous bass clubs holding club tournaments here each year. A good challenging time can be found on this lake. Are you up for a good challenge?

The lake was built in 1943. The area of the lake is 1,516 acres of water, 29+ miles of shore line with water depth from 4′ to 45′. The lake record bass was caught on February 25, 2017. The largemouth bass weighed 11.45 pounds and was 24.5 inches long. It was weighed at the Scenic View Motel, RV Park & Marina’s store and released. As far as we know it is waiting to be caught and weighed again. The weight of fish caught range from 1 to 10 pounds.

All the fish that have been brought in and weighed have been released back into the lake. We are looking forward to a good spawn so there will always be plenty of fish to be found here.

I recently stayed here from the 18th to the 24th and was extremely happy with my stay. I've never slept well in hotels... or motels and didn't think I ever would until I stayed here. It was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. It was the first time in years that I slept through the night. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with all the amenities needed. Jim and Kim were both such wonderful and likable and made me feel at home. I'll be staying here whenever I visit more

Perfect getaway, or home away from home 😎 Amazing views, quite property, tons of accommodations available from... renting a room or a cabin, to bringing your own camper and hooking up right on the shore front! Rent a boat, or a kayak or just soak up the sun and grill on the beach. Give this place a go, you won’t be disappointed 👌read more

A gem of a place and a wonderful experience here at Scenic View! Hosts were very welcoming and attentive. The room was... clean and well stocked. There are many lakeside seating options to enjoy the sunset over the lake, and to peacefully enjoy morning coffee. Lone Star is fortunate to have Scenic View as such a draw to the area. I will be back!read more

A 5-star review, and I haven’t even been there, ... yet. I called in hopes of finding a tent camping spot. The state... parks were not taking reservations, with no word on when things would open up. Kim answered my call. She did not have a tent site to offer, but she went completely out of her way to help me, even calling me back twice with more information. Thanks to Kim, I was able to get a site reserved the next day at another park. THANK YOU!read more
