Encompassing over seven acres directly on the water, the Resort includes natural terrain inhabited by wildlife. Canyon Lake and the Guadalupe River are known as the “Water Recreation Capital of Texas” and it’s no wonder why – Canyon Lake offers 80 miles of shoreline around pristine clear blue waters for fun year-round.

This area welcomes over 1.4 million visitors each year and is continually growing to meet this demand with new restaurants, services, and events.
