Canyon Lakeview Resort is a lakefront property encompassing over seven acres directly on the water, with boat ramp access right through the property. The Resort includes several acres of natural terrain inhabited by wildlife, easy access to the water’s edge at the Swim Cove, and The Pointe — Canyon Lake’s newest outdoor lakeside area for special events, such as weddings or casual gatherings such as stargazing. Feeding deer is one of our guests’ favorite pastimes. (And we provide some deer food.) Boulder pits offer unique gathering places for campfire fun overlooking the water.
