canyon lake dive weekend

Where: Canyon Lake, North Park – somewhere new to the club
When: July 15-16.
Let’s go diving in beautiful Canyon Lake west of San Marcos. Yes, it’s a long drive (let me know if you want to car pool) but it’s a new place for the club. It’s a very scenic area too.

Long drive so it’s recommended to drive down the day before
Dive#1 Saturday 10am (approximately)
Lunch – grill at the park
Dive #2: 2 pm (approximately)
Dinner at restaurant – TBD

Alternatives for Sunday:

Dive Clear Lake if you have the certification for it (I’ll make a reservation)
Dive North Park again – checkout is 2pm from the Park
Dive Overlook park – free and different from North Park, but the shore entry is more difficult – you have to haul your gear down from parking to shore – a cart is definitely recommended.

We have two sites for Friday night and Saturday night to be able to dive the park. Note that they allow 3 cars per site so ride sharing from hotel to lake is recommended.
Accommodation alternatives:

Primitive camping at North Park. Paid by the club and no charge if you want to stay there.
Hotels in San Marcos (30 minute drive from Canyon Lake
Quality Inn University near Downtown (this is where I’ll be staying)
Motel 6 north of San Marcos – many have stayed there in the past for Rebel’s San Marcos cleanup.
Baymont Inn & Suites by Wyndham San Marcos Outlet Malls
Comfort Inn & Suites
Airbnb – there are multiple options.
There are a couple of hotels by the lake – check Expedia for details.


I need to provide a list of divers to the park prior to the arriving so RSVP is encouraged (Otherwise you may not enter the park).
Not sure of conditions – will know closer to the dates.
There’s multiple sunken objects – here’s a map:

RSVP to Mike Lindstrom ([masked] /[masked]).
