More than 10 years (or so) ago, many people I talked to didn't know where Medina Lake was. Sure they had heard of Canyon Lake in the North Central Hill Country, known for it's clear waters, healthy depths and water sporting activity. But Medina Lake was relatively quiet in comparison.However our Lake has gained much popularity in the more recent years as the growth explodes in the Northwest side of San Antonio. It also was on the local news in a Big Way several years ago when the torrential rains in the Bandera area flooded the Medina River and pushed the Lake to it's limits. So if you haven't heard of it, or you don't know much about it, now is the time to come and visit! Spring is here, the weather is beautiful and nothing compares to a drive through our scenic Hill Country area. Here are your "don't miss" spots!
