“We go to Canyon Lake every Summer for tubing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

It is quaint, beautiful, quiet, and I much prefer it to floating through a town like NBraunfels. Just my personal opinion. All the tube places are owned by locals and are affordable and friendly!

“Peaceful, Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

My church group holds frequent retreats at Canyon Lake. It's an awesome place to "get away from it all." We go for the beautiful views and scenic nature walks. If you're looking for peace and quiet - this is it!

“Fun close to home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

One of our favorite areas to visit throughout the year. The Lake of course is the centerpiece but there is so much more to see as well. Beautiful scenery, access to various activities from fishing, hiking, tubing, swimming, and just hanging out and relaxing. Shops and restaurants in Canyon city and Spring Branch. Everything is fairly easy to get to and it's just fun to cruise around with the windows down and take it in. Fun for the whole family.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Canyon Lake is one of the clearest lakes that I have seen. Not a lot of people out there so its never really too crowded.
