  • I was there on a Saturday, and if you get there early enough (10 or 11am) you'll have the place all to yourself. After lunch time it started getting pretty packed, but thankfully we already had our ha...  more »
  • I really enjoyed the park. It was hot as Hades as it is still be expected during the Texas summer. We received some respite when the sun went behind the clouds. We took a walk on the dam which had a g...  more »

  • Great place to spend the afternoon.. the water is amazing clear and cold!! There are no shaded areas around the water so I would suggest taking a beach umbrella! The views at canyon lake are unbelievable.
  • A nice little park with access to the beach and the dam. I'm not much of a crowd person and this place was packed (probably due to Independence Day holiday weekend). We made a side-trip here specifically to see a VERY-out-of -place Brown Booby that we heard was hanging around. He was. Once I got pics, we left.
  • Easy access to the lake. Restroom, trails and vistor center. Rangers are very knowledgeable about lake, local history‚Äč, and many other topics. Great views from the dam of the lake. The park is open 365 days of the year. The park office is open only Monday through Friday for visitors. They have maps and free items for kids and parents to teach water safety.
  • Absolutely beautiful! It has trails, a small beach and a road that is elevated for a scenic view. You can canoe here and fish here too. Bring your binoculars!
  • Gorgeous! Lots of places around the lake to picnic or get in the water. Usually alot of sailboats out as well, very scenic.
