Banana Bend Beach
This spot is located off of I-10 in Highlands, Texas. From Houston you would take I-10 East to the Crosby-Lynchburg Exit 787 and head North. This exit is probably around 15 miles East of Houston on I-10. You will be traveling North on Crosby-Lynchburg. Go about 4 1/2 miles and take a left on the street by Grioso Motors. I think this is the name, but it is a used car lot and there is a mini-storage behind it. You should also see the sign for Banana Bend. This is a great launch spot for a change of scenery The ramp is built well and any type of vehicle should be able to launch from it.
I only noticed one ramp at this launch. There is also a kids playground and a full concession stand with beer, burgers, and other things. I guess a main attraction of this place would be the sandy beach. It is a pretty good size and could easily fit a couple of hundred people. I hear it gets really crowded at times. Sorry, but I didn't get any pics of the beach. I will only go there for jet skiing so I didn't think about it. All in all, I will ride there again to explore the narrow and wide channels further. You can look at the Banana Bend website for a pic of the beach.
Admission is $5/adult and is cheaper for kids depending on their age. Concessions are cheap. Burgers are around $4 and beer is $1.50.
