Location and Access
Potters Creek Park is located in Canyon Lake, Texas. There is an entrance fee and they only let in overnight campers past the gate. The park is open all year round and operates on a first-come, first-serve basis, so it’s better to come early in the week to get a good spot or get ready for a possibility to be turned away due to the absence of vacant campsites.
There are two boat ramps with docks, a fishing pier, and a beach in the park. Canyon Lake is beautiful and unbelievingly clear, with a clean bottom and plenty of shells. The water is cool and refreshing, making it the biggest pleasure to have a swim in the lake on a hot summer day. Here, tourists enjoy a wide variety of water activities including boating, jet skiing, sailing, tubing, and swimming.
There are bathrooms and showers, but they require maintenance, so prepare to find toilets run out of toilet paper or filthy showers. If you want to cook some food and have a picnic in the fresh air, luckily for you, there is a nice shaded picnic area available.
Potters Creek Park offers tent and RV campsites for an overnight stay for a reasonable price. There are water and electric hookups, but no sewer. The campsites are located in a quiet area with nice views of the lake, but probably a bit closer to each other than you’d want.
Note that some of the campsites have shade but those near the water don’t so bring your own shade in case you stay there. The nature around is beautiful and soothing – there are plenty of trees, including junipers and oaks, and deer often come extremely close to the campground.
Pets are allowed in the parking area, so feel free to bring your four-legged friend with you.
