Canyon Lake is less than an hour drive from most cities in the east valley. So it is a natural place to play for all those who like to boat, ski, jet ski, fish, swim, hike or just skip rocks on the water. With 950 surface acres and over 28 miles of shore line there is plenty of room to find solitude on the lake. The lake has a marina with full amenities including boat rentals, restaurant and cantina, and three campgrounds. The services at the lake are open year round with the best times to visit being spring and early summer. Don’t forget to visit Tortilla Flats located only two miles up the road and visit the restaurant for an old west style meal.
