Don't camp here if you don't want really PRIMITIVE camping. No showers or restrooms at this place. The views are great, but not the best place on the lake for campers.

We pulled in here just to be able to do a little sightseeing of the lake. Took some great pics, got to be outside for a bit and just enjoy the view. You can walk across the dam if you choose and there is a pier in the middle you can walk out on. Another post stated they paid money... More

It's honestly pretty to see. Got an awesome view of the dam, and awesome stroll down the dam. You can choose to hike the entire way or just a small stroll.

On a Sunday driving around in Texas we made a stop at Canyon Dam at Canyon Lake. The Dam and the park are very nice to make a Sunday stroll, we enjoyed it greatly with a lot of other people.

Went to the park and the first thing I saw was a sign that said 40 drownings since 2000. Not a good sign. We then pulled up to the booth where you pay at which I would like to mention is $12 and the guy said a man had drowned just that Saturday, and they couldn't find him. That meant... More

No alcoholic beverages allowed. Just prepare to hike and be aware there is no decent swimming access either. If you have a cooler go somewhere else safe unless you're going to stay up top and just look at the view.

Once again I was out with my super smoking wife. We like to explore nature and new places. We stopped here after we hopped in the car and went were the wind blows. We saw plenty of nature. Encountered a few deer and lots of birds while we were there. Went down to the lake and stuck our toes in.... More

Park was closed. Marina was opened and there was a barbecue restaurant that was opened also. The review is requesting at least 50 characters but what can you say, park was closed as well as the beach and there was no reason that we saw for the closure.
