Enjoy the reflection of a hill country sunset, while gazing into the depths of one of Texas’ most breathtaking water scenes. Fed from the Guadalupe River, Canyon Lake began construction in 1958 by the Army Corp of Engineers, and served as a reservoir to control flooding and water supply in surrounding areas. This massive project created over 75 miles of shoreline, providing prime conditions for recreational activities and a lake-front lifestyle. Naturally, gorgeous views and the proximity to aquatic paradise began the influx of prospective homeowners, who transformed and developed this area into a waterfront wonderland. Spend a night under the lone star, or take it easy on the lake with access to several recreational areas built and maintained by the Army Corp of Engineers to include swimming, hiking, fishing, and camping activities. Do you have a big boat and you cannot lie? Welcome to a community of like-minded folks who enjoy life off the dock. Although the Army Corps of Engineers prohibits private boat docks due to frequently fluctuating water levels, Canyon Lake is home to 15+ public boat ramps. Canyon Lake and Cranes Mill Marinas also provide private storage with boat and jet-ski rentals, to make lake adventures even more accessible from a waterfront dream home.
