With $4 entry fee, you would expect some trash pick up at the park. It is the dirtiest park I have seen. The Saturday we were there it was packed with people as well as trash on the ground. The restroom was dirtier than a portable potty. There were dirty diaper on the floor in one stall and unflushed toilet... More

This is the worst corps of engineering park I have ever been too. the park was covered in more trash than there was grass and the swimming area was just a bunch of old clothes and trash. you would think after the lake being down for years now they would extend the swimming area out to where the water is....

This large park does not have camping but has 2 boat launches, docks for your guest to easy transfer to and from the boat, large live oak groves for shade, small "islands" to explore and a sand bottom swim beach with pontoons and ropes to keep the kids out of the way of boats and jet skis. This park is... More

This past weekend we rented a boat on canyon lake for a few hours. LOVED the lake and had a blast. Once done, we wanted more water time so we decided to stop in at Canyon Beach Park. BAD IDEA! It is the most disgusting, dirty, trashy area I have seen. We were kicking pesticide bottles off the path to... More

The "beach" was absolutely disgusting. Covered with trash, dirty diapers, glass, etc. This was the one area that was shallow enough for children to swim in, all other areas have a sharp drop off (signs posted). Don't waste your time.

Canyon Lake is beautiful, one of our favorite lakes to visit. However, this park is horrible. We got there pretty early on a Sunday. The "beach" area was trashed. Diapers, beer cans, glass, it was everywhere. We probably filled up a trash bag of other peoples garbage, just to make the area around us safe. We ran into a couple... More

We were initially excited by seeing the photos on TA .ofcourse park is scenic and nicely shaded. Worst part is their restrooms which are NOT even restrooms at all. WORST maintenance and ofcourse the crowd should also be faulted for keeping the park clean. Beach area is dirty with Rocks and everyone of us would NEVER visit this park. Lake... More

Great little lakeside park. Boat ramp, diving area with underwater sea caves. Not much in the way of facilities but a nice place for locals to enjoy a picn, fish in the lake or scuba dive.

This park is very large and WHEN the water level is up enough, many people launch their boats there. One should check to see if the ramps are open before deciding on this park and the others around the lake. Drought conditions frequently cause ramp closures. The swim beach is often out of the water (roped often area to avoid... More
