City Services

Your Own Private and Gated City

All entrances to Canyon Lake are gated, and private security personnel guard the gates twenty-four hours a day.  Access is granted to outsiders by a property owner or renter who calls in their guests to a 24-hour answer line.
In addition to the private security services, through contract with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, Canyon Lake has its own Police Department.
