Potters Creek Park-Canyon Lake,TX

Wow, what a beautiful Corp of Engineers park where do I began. Stayed at park from 9/25-10/1. We got a late start on Saturday and just made it to the park prior to the gates being closed at 10pm. Most of the park is for guest with reservations but they do have a nice section (loop #1) that is for drive up guest. We took are chances without reservation and luckly we were able to get a good spot (#14) with shade trees. Park is well maintained and plenty of space betwee camp sites. Woke up in the AM to a cool morning breeze and a spectular view of the lake. Park is very quite as they typically only allow in overnight campers and guest.. Also very dark at night with no street lights which we liked. Plenty of deer roam freely through park. Sites only have water and electricity. So plan to have a tote tank, or visit the dump station if staying very long. Stays are limited to 14 days and cost $18 per night, discounts are available.

Also there is a great little place for breakfast or lunch that we overlooked until the last couple of days of our visit called Devine Deli. Don't let the looks or size fool you the place is really clean has great food and low prices. The are located on the road leading to the park about a mile from the park entrance.

Thanks guys. This place is as near perfect as it gets ! I will definitly make another trip there again soon. Also the Guadalupe river is just minutes away for tubing and such. Camping World in New Braunfels is about a 25 minute drive if you need any supplies. Plenty to do near by or come back here and get away from it all.

Oh one more thing.. Mrs Bush's Pie Company at 14335 FM306 in Canyon City is worth a visit as well and just a few minutes from the park as well.

How far would you drive for a really good pie? | Travel Texas | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Potter's Creek is our favorite quick weekend out place. Large sites, well maintained park. We visit maybe 7-8 times a year when we just want to take a last minute weekend run from San Antonio. Now is a good time to visit as you can generally get a spot without reservations. In the summertime reservations are a must, and the walk-ups fill up by mid week.
