More Is Made Here, Lake Conroe

Summers in Texas are spent finding the best ways to simultaneously enjoy the sunshine while escaping the Lone Star sizzle. Bodies of water become top attractions, serving as oases for recreation and relaxation lovers alike. With its natural beauty, premier location and availability of local businesses, Lake Conroe is an ideal summer stop for adventurers who know that Summer Fun is Made Here!

Stretching 21 miles and 21,000 acres, Lake Conroe offers many ways to enjoy the water and the 157 miles of shoreline that surrounds it. Swimming, fishing and boating, along with tubing, jet skiing and water skiing are popular activities on the lake. Resorts, hotels, condos, cabins and RV parks provide housing options for visitors to design their own unique stays. Diverse dining options serve up delicious meals to hungry lake goers. Lake Conroe’s amenities are countless and local businesses welcome visitors with excellent options for a day, or longer, on the lake.

1097 Watersports is one of those businesses specializing in summer fun. Founded in 2017, the business has quickly grown into a mainstay for lake lovers. Conveniently located on Highway 105 in a popular part of Lake Conroe, 1097 Watersports offers rentals on pontoon boats, kayaks and canoes, along with jet skis, water skis, tubes and even party barges. 

“We have a wide variety of services for anyone, at any age, and any level of experience,” offered Soraya Herbert, 1097 Watersports Marketing Director. “1097 Watersports is for everybody!”

The newest attraction at 1097 Watersports is the Jolly Pirate Ship. This interactive experience takes guests on a tour of Lake Conroe with a crew of Jolly Pirates. A Conroe-themed pirate story provides fantastical entertainment and local knowledge to all aboard. The ship, which was the imaginative idea of owner Leroy Herbert, debuted last summer and has become an instant hit with visitors of all ages.

“You walk off the boat not only learning a lot about where you live, but having had a great time,” added Herbert. “If you haven’t experienced the Jolly Pirate, it doesn’t matter what age you are or if you like pirates, I promise you will enjoy yourself.”

Across Lake Conroe you will find businesses offering exciting ways to enjoy the water. The following is just a sampling of the remarkable variety that Lake Conroe offers those looking for summer fun:

Herbert, who has plenty of experience on the water thanks to Caribbean and Florida roots, has spent much of her life living near and enjoying Lake Conroe. She believes the lake’s size, location and vibe make it attractive.

“It’s a large lake, so there’s many places to do different activities. You have spots where the water can be choppy that are great for jet skiing. You have areas where it's calm so you can go kayaking or paddleboarding. It’s just such a diverse lake,” said Herbert. “It’s centrally located, being 45 minutes outside of one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world. People love that easy accessibility.”
