We visited New Braunfels, with 2 things in mind 1 the water parks, and 2 to float the river. We arrived at the float rental (Rockin R) at about 9:30, and there wasnt any line at all. We unloaded, parked, got our rentals, and was in the water in under 20 min! They were nice, informative, and helpful. The river... More

This was my first visit to the river since I was in college, needless to say, long time ago. Decided to go when it was the first day of school, so the river was empty and quiet. Very relaxing and scenery is awe aspiring. If you have never been and really don't like crowds, try to avoid the high season... More

The Guadalupe River is a real Texas treasure for tubing or just visiting to take in the natural beauty. We have made many trips up and down River Road, just trying to take in all the Guadalupe has to offer. Great place to camp at one of the areas many campgrounds.

Loved it so much I wish we could have floated for a longer period of time. If you arrive early enough, you can float the river again. Beautiful, cool water with just enough rapids to keep it moving. I would suggest going on a weekday if you want to miss the party crowd.

The river and scenery is absolutely beatutiful. We rented rafts from Rockin R. They did not give us any warnings or tips regarding the Rapids. The Rapids are pretty tricky. Be especially careful at Huaco Falls and Slumber Falls. We went the wrong way and I was thrown from the raft and smashed my head on a rock. I can't... More

4th of July was way fun when a group of us floated from Rocky Beach to Lone Star (on River Road). Forget the Horseshoe, THIS was amazing! Lots of fun ripply rapids - and the chute! Hold on to your tu-tu, cuz it's a fun/wild ride and worth every penny. Rent your tubes from Rocky Beach - very clean place,... More

Sunday afternoon on the river. Relaxing, cooling and refreshing. Wildlife to watch and enjoy include fish, birds, squirrels and people, great for people watching, kayaking, tubing and swimming...or plain ol' daydreaming.

In Texas, there is nothing more fun than tubing the river when it's flowing well. The rapids are fun and can be a bit wild when the river is up. The Guadalupe is in a more natural setting than the Comal. Both are great, just different experiences. The Comal I'd a better swimming river and the Guadalupe is a better... More
