We had some time to kill, so decided to drive to Canyon Lake. What a great decision! This is a beautiful lake with plenty of walking trails. Numerous deer run wild making for great photos.

This area is absolutely beautiful. Camping, hiking, tubing, kayaking, Horseback riding, boating, or just plain hanging out you will not want to miss this area. A must see area of Texas hill country that God himself keeps an awesome inspiring finger on. DO NOT MISS!!

My husband and I got married under the big live oaks on the hill above Canyon Lake. It is so pretty and a great place for a picnic. You can walk across the dam & really enjoy the scenery.

Lake sucks for boaters trying to find a ramp on north side that’s open. What’s the use in having boat ramps when half of them are closed. Then when we finally found one it didn’t open till 8am. WTH.

My family spent the afternoon on one of the beaches here. The beach that we visited was not sand but small pebbles (not sure about the others). It's probably a good idea to bring some shoes that you can wear in the water that won't...More

We love to go to Canyon Lake on the weekends. We usually take a bottle of wine and watch the sunset.
