We did the boat tour, which was scenic and time well spent. Captain share all kinds of info and history about the region. Plus there were plenty of wildlife sightings, although some require a sharp eye to spot.
The boat ride lasted an hour and a half and all excursions for the day were sold out. It’s a good idea to make buy tickets in advance.

Beautiful scenic drive to the lake. Nice for water sports. There is a nice paddlewheel boat here which is nice for scenery. We saw numerous birds and bighorn sheep on our trip. Nice scenic lake in Arizona.

Very fun drive out to the lake, beautiful scenery, and if you can get out onto the lake and explore, the Salt River extends for miles from the lake up to the small dam by Apache Lake. Went about a dozen times last year and it was never overly crowded

Long beautiful trip to Canyon Lake but well worth it. Took the 90 minute boat tour around the lake. It was a lot of fun with great scenery and lots of information. Was able to see around 20 sheep along the way. Pictures cannot capture Canyon Lakes Beauty. The ever changing sky makes the colors change as you travel around the lake. They do have campgrounds and a marina if you are so inclined. If you are just passing thru take the boat trip it made our day!!

Cute little tourist stop. Have lunch, a beverage and an ice cream cone. Check out the Dolly Steamboat! When we stopped there was a great band playing in the outside beer garden. Watch the curves on the drive. If it says 15mph be going 10mph!

Beautiful lake, cool waters, not to busy during the week, and plenty of areas to explore, especially if you're on a kayak. The fun drive to the lake is an added bonus. The ducks like to socialize if they see you.

We didn't do much more than stop a few times and take photos... but this area is absolutely gorgeous! I want to go back when it's warmer to get out on the lake. But the drive there is the real treat! We drove all the way to Tortilla Flats. Such a beautiful drive. Awesome!

Don't bother to fish, however. Major algae bloom killed all the fish several years ago. Very deep lake with few shallows so it relies on stocking. I predict it will take quite a few years to recover.

The lake looks amazing, and from the road appears to branch out in every direction into the canyon. Some of the boats on it are massive!
