This beautiful reservoir along the Guadalupe River is a great place for swimmin’, eatin’, and explorin’. So what are you waiting for? You never know what you might find!


Canyon Lake Gorge

One of Texas’s newest natural landmarks, it dates back to 2002 when the Canyon Lake region received a full year’s worth of rainfall in a single weekend, causing the lake to overflow and rip through this small hill country valley, leaving behind the gorge that’s an awesome place for science nerds, history buffs and explorers, alike.

The Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country

To get educated on the history of this area, head to the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country. You’ll find all sorts of artifacts from the Native American Indians that called this area home, old time farm equipment and even dinosaurs prints left behind during the Prehistoric Era!


Overlook Park

If the first thing on your list is taking a dip, then Canyon Lake has what you need, and there are two great places to jump in. If you can navigate some steep steps, head to Overlook Park. This park offers the best views of the Canyon Dam and it’s my favorite place to take a dip in Canyon Lake’s waters because the boulders surrounding the water make for excellent diving boards.

Comal Park

If you’ve got small ones that want to play on a flat, rocky beach, then Comal Park has your name on it. It’s perfect for a family-friendly day at the lake.
