City of Canyon Lake, Photography by Anthony Arendt Photography
Welcome to the City of Canyon Lake

If Canyon Lake had to be described in one word, that word would be unique. One of only five gated cities in California, Canyon Lake began as a master-planned community developed by Corona Land Company in 1968. The Lake originally was formed in 1927 after Railroad Canyon Dam was built. It covers 383 acres and has 14.9 miles of shoreline. The “City of Canyon Lake” was incorporated on December 1, 1990. The City has a population of 10,647 and geographically spans 4.6 square miles.

Canyon Lake is located in Riverside County, which offers a growing job base, newly built designer homes and great schools.
