Lots of fun. Bring water shoes for the little ones. You can bring your own tubes or rent. If you want to stay later bring your own. Rentals close around 6.

This is a classic Texas springfed swimming hole. Cool clear water that runs year round is hard to find in parched central Texas, let alone in the middle of a great tourist town like New Braunfels. For generations locals and visitors alike have flocked to the river for wonderful swimming and tubing opportunities. In the summer though it gets extremely... More

We exited last public exit and walked 6-8 blks back to our car and headed to coopers BBQ for dinner. Give it... More

Went tubing with the Texas Tubing Company. It was a great experience. The river is a little cold. And it did get crowed. But it is clean and the people on the river were very friendly.

Lots of Fun. Bought tubes from Walmart and did the town chute. Floated past Schlitterbahn and walked back to the park. Lots of fun, good family time. Bring sunscreen and drinks.

This was a great time. There is one rapid that was a little difficult to get thru at times, but just floating down the River and relaxing was a ton of fun. Some people brought an extra tube and had a cooler and even music while floating down. It was fun for everyone. I would highly recommend it. We floated... More

Really, it begins and ends in town! Starts in Landa parl from the Comal springs and ends where it converges with the Guadalupe River. Popular for floating, I like "walking" it standing/swimming in a tube w

While floating the river is great fun, the comal has multiple spots where there are extremely strong currents and chutes. This particular time my toob flipped over going down the first (and... More

Beautiful and relaxing. If you have small children there is one chute that is a little stressful, but otherwise perfect family fun!
