It was nice to walk across the dam with the family, and overlooking the lake was beautiful. We walked down to the water, and there were a few families swimming, but it was pretty rocky along the edge.

The Overlook Park did not have enough designated parking and had no trash cans. It was too steep for childen on the path to Canyon Lake.

It's just beautiful there are two ways to get down to the water the way we went was tough climbing with the loose rocks and complicated footing, i don't recommend for older people or younger children we...

Could be a beautiful place. There was trash and beer cans all over the trails. The bathrooms were filthy. We tried to ignore the trash and just enjoy but there was just too much.

Overlook Park provides Great Lake views and tremendous photo opportunities. This is probably the best spot for snapping ever-changing sunsets. The walk across the dam is a popular flat surface walking opportunity which is hard to find in the area. The park closes at sunset.

The last few times we visited the Overlook Park, we didn't go on the Nature trail by the river.This time we did. It was nice. It took about 1:1/2 hour to walk the whole trail. Beautiful view of the river. Quiet and peaceful. At the Overlook Park you walk across the Dam, it takes approximately 30 minutes to walk across... More

You can walk along the dam to get a very nice view of the lake. Some people were walking down a trail (a little steep) to the lake that had a little sandy area. Free.

Went in the middle of the day and walked along the dam. The walk was 0.8 miles one way but with a nice, large path that allowed everyone to walk comfortably. The park is pet friendly (a plus) and definitely a family favorite. The gate to get to the walkway on the dam wasn't accessible for a wheelchair so I... More
