  1. We are an elderly couple who have lived here in Canyon Springs Resort since 2005. We used to take our dogs, grandkids and a picnic lunch to the park at the end of Cranes Mill road to swim and play. Then, we tried walking our dogs on the road on the top of the dam. Now we cannot find safe , cheap places to get out and walk and play around the lake (south side). We used to have a little lake view from our back yard. Now this view has been covered by huge houses in Oak Shores. We used to drive over to Boat Ramp #8 and walk around the shoreline, but the terrain is too rough for us to walk around. We bought fishing license, but cannot find where we are allowed to fish. Can anyone tell me where Canyon Lake south side residents can enjoy being near the lake? Contact us at: Thanks! toni.tales@ymail.com

    So all summer long we have so many tourists that are on the lake and in the parks that we just stay home. Finally the tourists are gone fir the summer and NOW you close the parks? Seriously? What are you people thinking? Shame on you. As residents who pay taxes here, we should be allowed to have some time on our own lake at the parks before you close for the season! Time to rethink your not so good plan.
