About our area ......
Canyon Lake, Texas is centrally located between Austin and San Antonio and just minutes from New Braunfels, Gruene, Bulverde, and Spring Branch. On the rim of the beautiful Texas Hill Country, Canyon Lake has a shoreline of 80 miles and miles of cool, gentle waters on the Guadalupe River.
Canyon Lake is known as the Water Recreation Capital of Texas. Canyon Lake has beautiful clear water, striped bass, camping and day parks, hiking trails, and lots of room for recreation. Twenty-three boat ramps provide easy access. Canyon Lake welcomes the Upper Guadalupe River from the west while the Canyon Lake Dam provides a controlled release of cool waters into the Lower Guadalupe River, temperate enough to sustain rainbow trout life throughout the summer. The most popular section of the Guadalupe River runs between Canyon Lake and New Braunfels, lined with outfitters and all types of lodging. This scenic stretch of the Guadalupe is accessible from River Road, which crosses the Guadalupe four times.
Canyon Lake is a unique community among rolling hills in the midst of lake and river waters. Day trips to heritage-rich central Texas towns, such as New Braunfels, Wimberley, Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Johnson City, Marble Falls and Bandera, make us a top location for lodging. Water activities are abundant. The cedar and oak woods are saturated with wildlife. Neighborhoods are shared with pet-like deer. It’s calming and natural. Photographers will be exhilarated. Enjoy local hangouts and concerts on the river.
The cooler weather of fall and winter doesn’t just mean the leaves have started to change colors; there are still plenty of things to do here. The Guadalupe River, which is usually filled with tubers, is now an oasis for Fly Fisherman and Kayakers. Do you want to see a real Home Town Christmas Parade or how about visiting the North Pole Village? Have you ever wanted to travel back 110 million years to see an exposed fault zone, fossils, or even dinosaur footprints? Without the summer Texas heat, it is like a different world around here.
