Canyon Lake is a reservoir on the Guadalupe River in the Texas Hill Country in the United States. Canyon Lake is a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoir formed on the Guadalupe River in Comal County by Canyon Dam, which is located about sixteen miles northwest of New Braunfels. The dam, lake, and all adjacent property are managed by the U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers. Water rights, waste water treatment, and hydroelectric generating facilities are managed by the Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority. Construction of the dam began in 1958 and was completed in 1964. The reservoir serves to provide flood control and water conservation for the communities downstream from the dam. The lake is also a popular recreational destination.

Canyon Lake is a center for recreation in the area. The Corps of Engineers built and maintains eight park areas around the lake for camping, swimming, boating and picnicking. Bank fishing is available in all park areas, and a fishing dock can be found in Cranes Mill Park on the south side of the lake. Comal County provides several public boat ramps for access to the lake. Hike, bike and equestrian trails are available, as is limited hunting (archery only) and professional fishing guide services.

PUBLIC ACCESS TO CANYON LAKE - Swimming and Boating

The GPS coordinates given for a general search of 'Canyon Lake, Texas' on Wikipedia or available from a 'Google' search do not correspond to any public access areas. The only public access to the lake is at one of the parks, marinas or boat ramps around the lake. Although the Army Corps of Engineers owns and controls the shore immediately above the lake waterfront, the remainder of the lake shore (accessible by public roads) is privately owned property and public access to the lake shore through any of these properties is not allowed.

If more information is required (maps included) please visit the Texas Parks and Wildlife website: https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/fish/recreational/lakes/canyon/access.phtml the Canyon Lake Guide website: http://www.canyonlakeguide.com/ and the USACE web page: http://www.swf-wc.usace.army.mil/canyon/Maps/Ramps_ShortFormat_2012_Full_WebVersion.pdf

There are several public parks on the shores of Canyon Lake that allow access to the lake for swimming, fishing and boating.

There are 2 marinas located on the lake. The marinas have boats and jet skis available for rent.

There are several public boat ramps on the lake as well as private boat ramps. Public access boat ramps are available free of charge. The private boat ramps at the marinas or in some of the parks are available to the public for a fee. There is no fishing or swimming allowed at any of the boat ramps. (Wikipedia)

I see you are back in the Rain, Aaron. Welcome back!  Beautiful photo of Canyon Lake. Sounds like there's a lot to do in this area and homes are scarce with only three on the market.
