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 to go in - where we entered it was free to drive up. If you continue on the road at the top is Overlook Park - which is a circle drive that overlooks the lake and a small part of the dam and gorge.

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 no going in the water. So we decided to fish and when we did, we realised that there was no where to set up and cast. We were excited to leave. Don't go. PLEASE!!!

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.
