Known as "The Water Recreation Capital of Texas," this popular area developed after the U.S. Corps of Engineers build Canyon Lake in the mid-1960s. Nestled among the scenic hills of the Texas Hill Country, growth has paralleled that of nearby San Antonio, New Braunfels and Comal County. The area includes Cranes Mill, Hancock, Sattler and Startzville communities. The lake and the Guadalupe River offer an abundance of water-related activities--fishing, sailing, boating, tubing, swimming and more.
