Destination guide

Find a scenic cabin rental by Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake lies on the Guadalupe River and is approximately 20 miles north of New Braunfels. The area draws visitors from all over for its plentiful water activities. At Comal Park, on the south side of the lake, you can launch your boat from the public boat ramps and fish for rainbow trout. History buffs can tour the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country to see prehistoric dinosaur tracks, Native American artifacts, and pioneers' farming equipment. Many New Braunfels cabins near Canyon Lake stand on a hillside and come with a screened porch or patio that overlooks the clear blue waters.

Things to do

Walk the dinosaur - Canyon Lake's Heritage Center

The Guadalupe River State Park is another big draw to the area. It's popular with outdoor enthusiasts who flock for the hiking and horseback riding trails, or to canoe down Guadalupe River. If you prefer history to hauling yourself down a river, head to the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country. Perched near the southern shores of Canyon Lake, it features more than 200 dinosaur tracks dating back over 100 million years. It also has Native American exhibits and an antique collection dating from the 19th century.


Bass, boats, and birdies - there's something for the whole crew

Canyon Lake is 1 of the deepest lakes in Texas and is great for fishing, sailing, and watersports. Book a waterfront Canyon Lake vacation rental and have its natural attractions right on your doorstep. Drawing fishing fans from all over the state, Canyon Lake is crammed with largemouth bass, catfish, and striped bass. Book a fishing excursion or hire your own boat. If you prefer to keep your toes dry, why not hit up a birdie on the many golf courses that dot the shores. After a busy day, treat yourself to dinner in a charming lakefront restaurant.


Find blazing (hot) saddles in Texas Hill Country

There isn't really a bad time of year to visit Texas Hill Country. It benefits from year-round sunshine, and even in the winter months can often see temperatures in the 50s. However, the summers can be blisteringly hot, and temperatures can often rocket to 100 degrees. This is when the cool, clean waters of Canyon Lake really come into their own, but it means the best Canyon Lake vacation rentals get snapped up quickly. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall see the most comfortable weather, the latter of which is festival season.
