However we came to see the Overlook Park.

The Canyon Lake was huge.

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.

We loved the view from the top of the dam. The lake is beautiful. We have a small dog that is eager to sniff and explore which made me nervous being so high up with steep drops on both sides! Didn’t explore the trails to the lake as we are seniors and don’t hike. There were a lot of families that were at the shoreline so looks doable.

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.

The website says it open on Sunday at 630 am. Family and arrived at 730 and the gates are closed at both entrances, really upsetting after an hour and a half drive to get here.

We went here to do some hiking and take some pictures but quickly found out this is a local hang out for swimming. 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 had quite the time getting swimming gear and coolers down this cliff on top of the heat it takes a lot out of you. Once your down it great , there is a rock shore to sit on and some nice shallows to swim before it gets deep. Go in the morning before it really hot because there is no shade by the water either. All in all its a great place to be the dam is breathtaking and the deer will stand long enough for you to snap a few good shots , no picnic tables only benches and they do have restrooms. You won't be disappointed but I recommend going down to the water by the dam and not the Cliffside.

I used to bring everyone here but since they closed the dam walk way I don't care to use this park. Me as well as many others are praying those in charge will come to their senses and reopen the walk way

We enjoyed hiking around the lake; easy rock climbing (stepping over/on rocks); LOTS OF TRASH!!! I was saddened by the amount of litter!!!! Spent most of my day wishing I had another day available to go back with a trash bag!! Such a shame people who litter don't have more respect for the area around them.

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.

We drove up to the parking area here from our cabin. We then walked down to the lake with the dog, not for people with mobility issues. There is a place a little further down with benches and a nice view for people with physical restrictions. The water was surprisingly clear and our dog enjoyed the walk.
