"Where Water Sports Are King"


Canyon Lake, Texas, weather forecast

Located on the Guadalupe River in Comal County, Texas, Canyon Lake has 80 miles of scenic shoreline and covers an 8,230 surface acre area. It is one of the deepest lakes in Texas with an average depth of 43 feet. Canyon Lake is located approximately half way between San Antonio and Austin, approximately 14 miles northeast of New Braunfels on FM 306 west from IH-35.

There are five communities located around the shores of Canyon Lake. On the north side, there are Hancock and Canyon City. The Canyon Lake Marina is located on the north shore in the Canyon Park in Hancock. Two Yacht Clubs are also located on the lake.


Canyon Dam is on the north side near Canyon City. The dam is 5 kilometers in length and rises to a height of 224 feet above the river bed. Take a stroll across the dam and take some outstanding water scenery photos along the way.

On the south side of the lake are the communities of Sattler, Startzville, and Crane’s Mill. Cranes Mill Marina is located on the south shore of Canyon Lake in Cranes Mill Park on FM 2673 in Startzville.


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages eight public parks on the Canyon Lake shoreline. Cranes Mill Park and Comal Park are located on the south side and Potters Creek Park, Canyon Park, Jacobs Creek Park, North Park, Overlook Park, and Guadalupe Park are all on the north side. These parks offer camping, trailer, and picnicking areas, and boat ramps. Canyon Lake fishing is great and several record fish have been caught.


Nature lovers will find plenty to observe with the variety of sea birds. There are many white-tail deer around the lake areas and you will find them grazing in the front yards of many of the homes.
