The view from the dam is gorgeous. We wish we knew about it sooner but now we know where we're going to swim at next year!

Provides an elevated view of Canyon Lake from atop the dam. You can also walk across the dam (0.8 miles one-way). Although we did not, it appears you can swim here. A little walk down a path to the lake has what appears to be reasonable access to get wet.

Although the "park host," as it read on her truck, was unpleasant to my family, the views surpassed her ignorance and rudeness. The Overlook Park is a must see if you're in the area.

This is our favorite place to walk with new visitors to the lake. Great view of the lake and river below the dam.

This is a great view of Canyon Lake and the hill country. FREE parking and no entry fee. It was a nice walk to see all of the Lake and the surrounding hill country.

We sure enjoyed the Canyon Lake Tx Dam and Overlook Park. It is safe for little ones to walk on the dam and on the trails. Also, do go below the dam and hike along or in the stream, too. Great family outing!!

The guide that signed us in said he was new and couldn't answer any of our questions. He was kind though.

Absolutely beautiful views from the dam overlooking Canyon lake. The walkway is probably a mile long. Not sure if there is park or play area for kids there but well worth the visit if you are visiting the Canyon Lake area on Hill Country, TX.

The park offered a nice view of the dam and the lake. The walk across the top of the dam was great. On busy days, parking is insufficient and the public restrooms are quite nasty.
