This recreation area is part of Canyon Lake
Cranes mill is a National Park. I purchased the senior lifetime pass and was able to stay every night for half price at this serene park. We arrived on the afternoon of Columbus Day weekend and we're happy that the park cleared out a bit on Monday. The views were spectacular at sunset. I appreciated camping on a small peninsula being able to see Canyon Lake on both sides of our campground. Most of the pads were fairly level though ours was a bit steep. We were disappointed that there was a burn ban at that time. The small town of Startzeville is very near with adequate grocery and forgotten item facilities. We found this a very nice, clean and quiet camp site in near proximity of home.
Nice RV Camping close to the Lake
like to use the park across from this , Ft. sam army park, but they are all nice on canyon lake
The water level of Canyon Lake was down so access to the water wasn’t real easy. once in the water it was great floating in a tube. very clean bathrooms. each campsite has a covered picnic table, barbs and fire pit. I will definitely return.
Quiet and peaceful
I absolutely love canyon lake and have been to pretty much all of the surrounding parks. Cranes Mill has great trees for hammock camping as well as traditional camp sites. There are all the normal amenities you'd expect and there is a lot of space for everyone to spread out. Definitely recommend the park!
