Having Some Fun on Texas’ Canyon Lake

The summer days may be getting shorter, but there is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy Canyon Lake. Ideally situated between San Antonio and Austin, and located on the Guadalupe River, with 80 miles of picturesque shoreline, and over 8,200 acres of surface area, it’s no surprise that this treasured waterway is considered “The Jewel” of Texas Hill Country. In the heart of it all, New Braunfels Leasing and Resorts has two vacation rentals within proximity to this natural and scenic attraction that have proven to be the perfect homes away from home for those seeking a late-summer lake retreat. Lending itself to a vast assortment of recreational options, Canyon Lake has played an integral role in making us one of the best vacation spots in the state.

Things to Do on Canyon Lake

With a seemingly endless array of lake activities, finding ways to spend your vacation can become somewhat mind-boggling. Sure, you could laze about your cabin or condo without a care in the world, but that’s why we have winter! Spending time on Canyon Lake is a quintessential Texas Hill Country vacation experience that shouldn’t be ignored. To help you wade through your options, we devised a fun list of things to add to your Texas vacation itinerary for maximum recreation:
  • Have a pontoon picnic
  • Go jet skiing
  • With an average depth of 43 feet, Canyon Lake is an excellent place to do some fishing. You can either go at it alone or hire a reputable guide.
  • Whether floating down the Guadalupe River or being pulled behind a speedboat, tubing is a seasonal favorite. Otherwise, if you prefer standing, water skiing is popular too!
  • Paddle Canyon Lake is an outfitter specializing in kayak and paddleboard rental and sales, providing a physical, yet tranquil way to enjoy the water.
  • Post up on shore and host a boat party
  • Swimming seems like kind of a no-brainer, but if you haven’t thought of it, then there you go!
