  • Loved this place! It was so pretty definitely a must see! Great for kids and adults, also fur babies, lol.  more »
  • Park closes at sunset. Just make sure you have timed it so you are walking back toward the car when the sun sets. The Sheriff came by and told us all we had ten minutes. After ten minutes he announced...  more »
  • Easy drive to the dam headquarters with picnic area, etc. The restrooms are filthy, so plan to leave the overlook area for facilities.  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.
