Canyon Lake, the most popular camping area in the entire
state, has much to offer. Virtually every amenity is either
available on site or within a few miles. The Crook
Campground set just 3/4 mile back from the lake
and has 26 campsites. There are two loops at Crook, each able to hold a large group of campers
at the lake is a country store complete with boat rentals
and a battery charging station for those who bring their
own trolling motors. The store pretty much has everything
you might need for a great camping trip. A phone is available
at the front door of the store.
around the corner from the store is the Rocky Point day
use area. There is a charge to use the parking area but
it is minimal ($5.00). There is good fishing down by Rocky
Point and I tend to spend at least one afternoon there
dump station is located just up the road.
