Comal and Canyon parks, popular destinations for recreationalists seeking direct access to the Canyon Lake shoreline, probably will be packed this weekend and may periodically close when they reach capacity then reopen.

To check park status in realtime, visit the parks’ Facebook pages.

To avoid confusion, the Water Oriented District of Comal County (WORD), which manages these former U.S. Army Corps of Engineers parks, offers these tips:

Comal Park
1178 Comal Park Rd., Canyon Lake, TX 78133
This 116-acre park is located on the south shore of Canyon Lake near Startzville. Amenities include picnic sites, two boat ramps, a pea gravel-and-sand swim beach, playgrounds, restrooms, a sand volleyball court, soccer goals and four washer pits. Admission is $10 per vehicle or $5 for Comal County residents.

Good to know this weekend:

  • Bring everything and everyone with you in one vehicle, if possible. Do not leave family or possessions in the park. Once the park has reached capacity, no one will be allowed to enter until the park reopens.
  • Comal Park is day-use only. Hours are 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. No entries after 6 p.m.
  • Leave the glass, styrofoam, fireworks and charcoal grills at home!
  • On Saturday, July 3 there will be a parade in Startzville beginning at 10 a.m. All roads leading to the park will be temporarily closed. Plan accordingly.

Canyon Park
