For an area you have to pay to access I’d expect it to be in better condition. Tons of trash. There are better areas around you can access for free that are much cleaner.

I visited Canyon Lake for a few hours to site see. Very picturesque and relaxing. There are plenty of areas for setting camp to enjoy with family and friends. The drive through Hill country is also smooth.

we had a great time with the family for a day picnic. Water was cold so we couldn't get in but we enjoyed the view anyway.

I love going to the lake and spend the whole day for fun. I sometimes go to the dam part because it's free but still very enjoyable.

I came at the end of the day just to drive through and look. It was well-worth the $7 entry fee per vehicle. The park was very clean and has a large beach area and a panoramic view of the scenery. There were many families...More

The park closes at dusk - whatever time that is....they will come by and alert visitors that the park will be closing. This time of year, I would expect no earlier than 7:30.
