It’s hard to beat the lake, with its variety of opportunities for relaxation and recreation, including swimming, boating, and picnicking, as well as hiking, biking, and riding horses on the trails around the lake. Canyon Lake fishing is some of the best around, with ample largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, Guadalupe bass, white and striped bass, catfish, and a 24-hour dock on the lake’s south side.

Canyon Lake’s location also puts it within easy reach of all the best of the Hill Country. A variety of restaurants ranging from local favorites to fine dining, an abundance of shopping options, and live music almost everyday of the week make the area uniquely fun. So does proximity to Schlitterbahn Waterpark, the charming town of Gruene, and easy access to tubing on the Comal River.
