I LOVE this river. It's my favorite and I've been tubing it for 20yrs. It's crazy high and fast right now due to all of the rains/flooding we've had but it's still gorgeous. There are more rowdy, drunk, crazy, stoners etc. on this river, but you will also meet some of the most friendly people on this river too! I've... More

Kayaking and tubing on the river is a blast! The rates are reasonable. The river is picturesque and cool. There were even some spots to stop and have a picnic! I liked the tubes the most!

We floated the Guadalupe via the Rockin-R. Fun time the day before it was closed due to Canyon Lake discharge.

I can float down the river looking up at the birds and listening to the crickets. Dislike that people try to fish in same area tubers or kids are wading in.

Good way to hang out with friends and stay cool in the Texas heat. Get your tube, tie up or float solo.....tie the cooler on and float your way down the river. A few very small rapids ...just enough to wake you up if you are dozing.

Went to raft or tube down the Guadalupe yesterday and were informed that the water level was low. Too low upriver for rafting and pretty low downriver for tuning. Went and tubed down the Comal river instead and had no problems.

love the river and it's beautiful but seems the drought is a problem. Hope TX gets more rain soon. Sorry that TX is having such problems with rain. Maybe so many people shouldn't live where there's no water, but I understand because it's warm and lovely and there's a lot of birdsong. Really nice for a bird lover.
