While the Lake Travis Independent School District mostly serves the more westward part of the Colorado River, there are some homes along Lake Austin that are zoned for Lake Travis ISD. This includes the area near where Lake Travis and Lake Austin transition to one another — just east of Mansfield Dam to just east of Resaca Boulevard.
The more rural neighborhoods of Illakee and Horseshoe Bend Estates are part of Lake Travis ISD, as are the homes along Big Horn Drive, Ladera, and Resaca, which is in Lake Pointe. Resaca at the back of the neighborhood is where the homes closest to Lake Austin are found. Some homes farther in will have small views of the lake, and the Lake Pointe Homeowners Association provides residents access to a day dock on Lake Austin.
