Great view of Canyon Lake

Great view of Canyon Lake and the valley below. Good place for a run across the dam or for a walk with the family. Easily accessible

A “dam good” experience!
Jan 2021
The walkway across the top of the massive dam offers spectacular views of the lake. Almost a mile long, it’s an easy flat walk which can be enjoyed by old and young alike. There’s also a Park for picnicking, trails down to the lakeshore, and an interpretive kiosk detailing the construction of the dam. There’s no charge to access the dam or park.

Nice view of Canyon Lake
Jan 2021
There are some benches where you can sit and look at the lake. There is a path down to lake where there are BIG rocks to sit on and look at lake. Think there are some paths you can walk as well. Very pretty spot.

Don’t miss Overlook Park

Beautiful park! Wonderful views and easy walk atop the dam. Trail down to the water is easy going down but coming back up is easier if the trail is followed around instead of going straight back up. Clean and peaceful area. Water is so clean and pretty. Park was really busy on weekend, go during the week if possible if you are looking for a quiet little get away. We really enjoyed!

Nice place to walk the dam. Can be crowded on the weekends. Some trails to get down to the lake. Restrooms in the back parking area.

Nice but can get crowded and noisy
Jul 2020
Went to visit Canyon Lake for the first time and hard to believe water this turquoise /blue and clear exists in Texas and a lake to boot! Overlook Park is pretty especially walking along the dam area to watch the boats go by or the sun set. Getting down to the water and back up can get tricky and the slope is steep but pack lightly and you should be set. The drop offs are steep so watch your kiddos and weak swimmers and make sure life jackets are put on. My family and I found a nice quiet area on a Tuesday and we pretty had the place to ourselves, except for a group of ladies who bought their kayaks and kept to themselves; a family here and there and the nice sound of kids’ laughter and the waves all contributed to a wonderful time . We came back Thursday thinking it’s still the same but alas, the nastiness of humanity all showed up. There were people who decided to plop their stuff less than 6 feet away and seem to be oblivious to the idea of social distancing. The place is pretty big so I have no clue why these people felt like they needed to be near us. I had to keep asking people to keep their distance. Then there are those that feel it’s their duty to play music loud enough for the whole lake to hear. This makes the place lose its tranquil vibe and I really hate people that behave like this. Not everyone is there to listen to your music so please keep your volume in check. Damn, the place would have been really perfect if not for the riff raff, self entitled trash that showed up that day.

Nice View
Jun 2020 • Friends
Even under hot summer rays, the view top of this dam was pretty nice. The dam has a gated entrance. Walkway is free, paved, maybe a mile long. Overlooking the water in one side and hill country on otherside. If it snowed, one would wish to sled down the grassy side, although the ride would be long and steep. The dam is near a park where some walk down to reach the water to swim or sit under umbrella. Minimal shade. Few boats out on the water (prob coming from nearby marina). Nice area for sightseeing. Parking is free.

We checked this place out on our last day. It is beautiful. Give yourself time to walk it and appreciate the views. I also recommend swimming and kayaking.

Nice spot for a walk

We walked the dam, & spent a little time walking the trails down by the water. Some nice scenery, including panoramic views of the area. Very pleasant, & would recommend to anybody who wants some not-so-strenuous exercise.
