Bring water shoes when you visit Canyon and Comal parks on Canyon Lake, the Water Oriented Recreation District of Comal County (WORD) advises.

Lake levels are low due to the ongoing drought, and beach and shoreline areas in the park are a lot farther away from the parking lots than they used to be.

“There is still plenty of water in the lake and we are making every effort to put both water access and non-water amenity improvements within the parks to give the best possible visitor experience, but we have no control over drought conditions,” WORD said on its two Facebook pages, Canyon Park on Canyon Lake and Comal Park.
