BOATER ADVISORY: Zebra mussels have invaded this reservoir. CLEAN, DRAIN AND DRY your boat, trailer, livewells/bait buckets, and other gear before traveling to another water body. Draining water is required by law and possession and transport of zebra mussels is illegal.

The Army Corps of Engineers operates seven major parks on the shores of Canyon Lake. Several others are managed by Comal County. Some of these parks provide campgrounds, beaches, picnic areas, boat ramps, and opportunities for shoreline fishing. An entrance and/or boat ramp fee is charged at most parks. For details, choose a point on the map or a name in the chart below. For more information on camping fees and facilities, visit the Corps park page.
