Overview

Overview

Potters Creek Park is situated on the northern shore of Canyon Lake in the rolling hill country of South Central Texas. Cool breezes off the lake create a pleasant environment for relaxing in this scenic area. The lake and Guadalupe River also provide great opportunities for boating, fishing and swimming.

Natural Features:

The park is settled among wooded, gently sloping terrain. Native oak and juniper surround the upper campsites; sites closer to the waterfront are in full sun.

Grassy fields of native hill country plants and wildflowers dot the landscape. Rocky outcroppings are scattered throughout the park.

Recreation:

Visitors enjoy coming to Canyon Lake for boating, swimming and fishing. The Guadalupe River is a great location for canoeing, kayaking and tubing. Both the lake and river are stocked with bass, catfish, and trout.

Hiking, biking, horseback riding, birding, and wildlife viewing are popular activities in the surrounding hills. Five trails circle the lake, including the Canyon Dam Crest Trail for hiking and biking, and the Old Hancock Trail for hiking and horseback riding.

Facilities:

This large campground is open year-round. It offers family RV and tent sites, overnight screened shelters, and a group site, all with electric and water hookups. Picnic tables, fire rings, and grills - for making s'mores or getting a perfect sear on a side of Texas beef - are provided.

Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, and two dump stations. The park also has two boat ramps with docks, a fishing pier and beach. Rangers patrol the park and hosts are on-site year-round.

Nearby Attractions:

Canyon Lake is near many sites of interest including Natural Bridge Caverns and the historic town of Gruene in New Braunfels.
