  • Beautiful View of Canyon Lake from the dam. You can walk on the dam, or walk down to the water. Take a picnic lunch and sit by the water and watch the boats.  more »
  • I grew up hiking the So Cal mountains so traversing rocks and enjoying fresh water is, hands down, some of my best memories of growing up. To find a small taste of this in Texas?! Holy smokes, Canyon ...  more »

  • This lake is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like water from the Bahamas! Not too crowded, amazing spot to spend the day swimming and sunbathing. It can get deep fast, so definitely be careful if you bring small children, I'd suggest a life vest. Also bring some goggles / snorkeling gear because this is an ideal place to snorkel! Can't wait to visit again!
  • Very pretty view of the lake. Public access. Several spots to walk down to the water. Several parking spaces and road-side parking accessible. Water is very clear, hard rocky (smooth rock) base. Gets deep very quickly. Kids were able to snorkel and swim, relax. Mom and I were able to stay in the floats (anchored down with big rocks) and stay relatively still. Boaters/jet skiers had no respect for the area or the people swimming in the area, but not the parks fault. Just bad decision by these "adults".
