Canyon Lake is not your average city in California. It is one of five gated cities in the state and provides a unique lifestyle that is not easily found anywhere. Whether your primary residence is in Canyon Lake or you spend vacations and weekend getaways in Canyon Lake, there is always something to do for everyone. Some of the most popular activities are to get out on the lake and go fishing and or wakeboarding. Canyon Lake offers six extremely well kept tennis courts, a newly renovated junior olympic sized pool, a horse stable and jump course, an ASGCA 18 hole (71 par) golf course, a campground with full RV hookups, baseball fields for little league, basketball courts, and close to 20 parks scattered throughout the city in which provide frisbee golf, volleyball, horseshoes, bbq’s, play structures, beaches, and boat docks!
Aside from the many amenities, Canyon Lake has MANY clubs and classes available to all residents. Some of the classes offered are as follows: crochet, ymca youth class, a variety of computer classes, dancersize fitness, exercise with your baby class, karate, line dancing, pilates, water aerobics, winter workout, yoga, dog classes, guitar class and other classes designated for seniors.

One big reason people move to Canyon Lake is for the fishing. A lot of people will tell you that Canyon Lake has some of the best bass fishing in all of Caliifornia, and from my personal experience I would say they are not lying! The lake is open 24 hours a day so you can go fishing ALL NIGHT LONG (on your boat too). I would almost guarantee that you will catch your personal best bass in Canyon Lake if you give it a good shot.
Below are some pictures of the city to help you get a better idea of the area. Canyon Lake is not ideal for everyone but if you want a friendly and safe community with a laid back lifestyle then you should put Canyon Lake at the top of your list. Canyon Lake is just an hour drive from both Orange County and San Diego so spending your weekends here is easy and a reality to many homeowners in our city.
