About this beach

Warnings and hazards

There is little shade – bring your umbrella and sunscreen.

Comal Park is a popular place, so it’s better to arrive before the noon to get a good spot.

Dogs are allowed in the park, but not at the beach (including water). 

Comal Park Beach is one of the fantastic Canyon Lake beaches. Located in a scenic nature area on Canyon Lake, it offers various opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, camping, picnicking, swimming, sunbathing, and boating.

Furthermore, it’s one of the best places on Canyon Lake where swimming is encouraged and there is a well-maintained beach with a dedicated swimming area. It’s a popular lake destination, so prepare to see quite a lot of visitors in high season.

Location and Access

The park is located at 1178 Comal Park Road, which is on the south shore of Canyon Lake not far from Startzville. The park boasts easy access and offers good parking. Its operating hours are from 8 a. m. to sunset from April through September.

On arrival, you should check in and ask the attendant for the time of park closure for that particular day. The staff is always friendly and helpful. On holidays and weekends, the park fills up quickly, so it’s better to arrive early if you want to get a picnic table or even come during the week if you want more seclusion and tranquility.

Park Facilities

The park facilities include a public restroom on the beach, a children’s playground, and two boat ramps. If you’re planning a picnic, there are as many as 65 picnic sites to choose from. There isn’t much shade, so bring your own umbrella. If you need to buy something, there is a large grocery store less than a mile away.

Beach Access

Comal Park has a large well-kept beach with a designated roped-off swimming area. Nevertheless, you can often see people swimming beyond the ropes when there are too many swimmers inside.

The water is fairly clean. There is no shade near the water, so take your umbrellas and sunscreen. The beach cleanliness can be hit or miss: there are many dustbins throughout the area, but visitors don’t always deal with their trash properly.

Dog Policies

If you’re a dog owner, feel free to take your furry friend to the park, but be aware that dogs are not allowed in the beach area including the shore as well as water.
