Potter's Creek COE, TX

 potters creek01

Potter's Creek Park is located on the north shore of Canyon Lake, about 37 miles NNE of San Antonio. The park is for campers only; there are no day-use facilities here. There are two major campground loops with a total of 114 modern RV campsites, 7 screened Shelters, 10 designated tent camping sites, and 5 Family Sites (each with hookups for three RV's).

The eastern loop, comprised of sites 1 through 61 is dedicated to first-come/first served campers. We decided on site 52, a water-front site.

Date of visit: Feb 2014

Sites 45 and 46 are probably among the best in the park, being closest to the water.

potters creek04
Sites 50 - 58.

The majority of sites here are out in the open sun, but there are also some nice shaded sites which must be very popular in the summer.

Sites 34-40.

potters creek08
Sites 21-24 on the left, 28-32 on the right.

potters creek09
Site 20 on the left, 25-27 to the right.

Sites 1-10 are in the upper part of the loop, with some large shade trees. Here are sites 9-11.

Sites 13 and 14, also under the trees.

Here is an overall view of the lower loop, which shows how open the area is.

Over in the western loop are the reservable sites, numbered 62-124. As in the eastern loop, the lower row is in the sun while the back row is under some large trees.

These are sites 88-101.

potters creek22
Sites 76-82 offer some shade.

potters creek23
Sites 68-71.

potters creek17
There are 10 tent sites, numbered 115 to 124, out on a small peninsula. These sites also have water and electric hookups.

potters creek24
On another little peninsula are 5 sites designed for large families or groups of friends. Each site has hookups for 3 RV's.

potters creek20
For those without a tent or RV, there are seven screened shelters. They are rather spartan, but do have electricity and sinks with running cold water. Users would have to provide their own cots or mattresses.

potters creek07
There are five modern bathhouses, each is clean and offers free hot showers. I use the term "hot" with reservations: in the bathhouse closest to our site, the water in the shower was hot to start, but quickly began to gradually cool down

potters creek14
For campers with boats there is a dual lane boat launch located between the two main campground loops.
