Yes, It's big enough to Ski. Lake Bryan is actually separated into 2 parts, both big enough for several boats to pull skiers at the same time. The highly technical terms for the different parts of the lake are the Main Area" and "The Other Side of the bridge"... Directions are fairly obvious once you get on the water.
In addition to water and camping, the lake area also has critically acclaimed mountain bike trails. Check this link out: http://www.austinbike.com/mtb/lakebryan/index.asp
The lake also has newly remodeled restaurant called The Hook...Here's their writeup:
The Hook Lakeside Bar and Grille is the Brazos Valley's premier fun loving, casual dining destination. If you're tired of the same old boring chain joints, come out to The Hook for not only a change of pace, but the best scenery of any eatery in the area.
