Potter's Creek, Canyon Lake, TX - Day 2


Potter’s Creek is a Corps of Engineers park on Canyon Lake located about 15 miles from New Braunfels.  It is on Hwy 306 which runs between Hwy 35 and Hwy 281.  The nearby town of Canyon has numerous restaurants, cabins, and RV parks if you don’t want a more rural setting.


The grass was pretty much brown about two weeks ago but quickly greened up with the rain we had.  Sunday about noon the tenters started leaving so the park was back to its more normal quiet.  This is a beautiful time of the year to be here.  It is a lot more busy in the summer.  Canyon Lake is very popular for boating and fishing.  
RV spots with water and electric are $24/day ($12/seniors with national park pass).  

There are very nice restrooms for each loop, some cabins, a boat ramp, and a dump station.  There are some shady spots and some directly in the sun (not bad at all for now but pretty toasty in the summer).



There are a lot of deer which roam freely through the park.  







There is also a large flock of geese.  My resident bird expert, Birdie, told me that they are Egyptian geese so they look a little different from what you might expect. 

All in all, it was a wonderful visit.
