Always beautiful

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

A Beautiful lake and you can walk across the dam! Nice surroundings and a lot of fun. You can even take a tour of the gorge if you arrange it in advance.

We rented a home right on the lake for one relaxing, glorious week. The lake is large, and although it was early in the year, there were some motor boats out. So very peaceful though. Sitting on the deck with your morning coffee - well...More

We stopped by the Observation point of Canyon Lake, where the dam is. You can walk across the top of the dam. Beautiful views!

Lovely area to park and walk and go up some of the small mountains for a lovely view of the lake and its clean waters

We enjoyed our visit to the lake to see the vastness of it plus the dam. The area was originally inhabited by German emigrants around 1844. It is a pretty area in the Hill Country.

We were there in cold December so could not go onto the lake but it was a beautiful view and in Spring and Summer must be fantastic. Very nice area of Texas with great people, located between Austin and San Antonio

Canyon lake is one of the clearest and deepest lakes in Texas. There are many parks and boat launches around the lake and most are free. It's a great lake for fishing, boating or for just a picnic.

Canyon Lake is awesome and there are many areas and options to take in or visit. If you are in the military you can stay at the military venues for a very reduced price.

I would think so. There is a place that advertises "dinasour footprints" not far from the lake.
