We went to visit potters creek from Houston, TX and it took me 4 hours to get there. Upon arrival the mean rude gate attendant did not allow us to go in and see the restrooms. I spent 150 dollars to get there and she refuse to let us go in and look. She said it was government policy not to let the public go in during weekends. Very disturbing and not happy, she wanted to charge me 24.00 just to see it, ridiculous.

We had a great view from our spot. I was not happy that the restrooms were not looked upon daily. Toilet paper was out for 2 days. Since you are not a full hook up(sewer) facility and your showers and restrooms are used frequently it would have been nice to have locking doors on restroom stalls and the showers. Neither shower door locked and you had to have someone hold one of the doors or it just opened up. We had neighbors in spot 105 that apparently came and beat on our other neighbors door at 4 in the morning being very verbal so they left. The drunk that was beating on the door earlier in the day was sitting at his campsite just cussing up a storm. Very disturbing. You also have a car limit per site and in most cases he had between 5-7 cars there daily. The good neighbors left but the drunks got to stay. You would think the drunk would get removed. Not sure if this will be a place we frequent.

I must say, no complaints here. The bathrooms were clean, the people were friendly and the water was beautiful. The Army Corps usually has a decent park scene. Nothing special, but no concerns.

Thier are not many trees around the lake, but each site provides a form of cover over the picnic tables. If you are planning on sitting around all day, I would bring my own shade.

The closest convienience store is very nice and new about 4 miles NW of the lake.

We also felt very safe, as the park seemed to be patrolled 24/7.

The park is settled among wooded, gently sloping terrain. Native oak and juniper surround the upper campsites, but note that sites closer to the waterfront are in full sun.

The park and campground is open year-round. It offers family RV and tent sites, overnight screened shelters, and a group site, all with electric and water hookups. Picnic tables, fire rings, and grills are provided.

Amenities include flush toilets, showers, drinking water, and two dump stations. The park also has two boat ramps with docks, a fishing pier and beach. Rangers patrol the park and hosts are on-site year-round.

Spent three nights at Potter's Creek on Canyon Lake. Had site 92, which is right on the lake, or where the lake would be if it weren't down so far. There's no shade on this site and even in the first weekend of November, shade would have been advantageous. The picnic table is covered though.

Bathrooms were huge and clean. And the views and easy access to the lake give this campground top marks.

The only ding I would give for this place is the water was turned off at the dump station so I couldn't rinse out my sewer hose when through dumping.
