Group Areas

Canyon Lake is a fantastic place to hold an event for a family, group, club, business, or organization.

We have four (4) group shelters and five (5) group RV/Camping sites located in two parks: Canyon and Potters Creek.  RV and tent camping are allowed in Potters Creek sites, while tent camping only is allowed in Canyon Park facilities. These group shelters (AKA: Group Pavilions) are very popular for events, so please make reservations in advance.

If you wish to plan a large event at any of the locations then you MUST talk to the rangers first to determine if you need to apply for a Special Event Permit. from the Canyon Lake Office.  Just call the main lake office at 830-964-3341 to discuss with us specific needs for your proposed event or go to the Contact Page to email a request for a permit.

A special event is anything not limited to your immediate family and friends, has attendence in excess of the capacity limitations for an areas, or you wish to have exclusive use of a certain portion of a park.    All such activities must have a permit.
