They have many camp grounds and trails to hike. It was close to 100 degrees the day we went, so we skipped the hikes. They have one trail to see painted bunting birds, so I was tempted to brave the heat to view them. (we ended up seeing one at our B&B in Canyon Lake.) You're able to kayak, tube... More

We went to check out this park and got there around noon, everything was full! including the parking lot, the additional parking is a long walk, they should definitely expand the existing parking areas, the river was about 3 deep feet in most of the parts, the currents were strong, perfect for rafting or tube surfing, nevertheless we had fun,...

We went on a 5 hour kayak down the river for the 4th of July. There are a few class 1 rapid and a nice steady current. Great place to go tubing too.

Just left this park and we had a blast! We will definitely come back to this park again! The park was very well maintained and had some of the cleanest state park bathrooms.

We actually just bought a ranch on the river and immediately saw it's kayaking and tubing potential. After running over to COSTCO and the Academy athletics store and buying kayaks and tubes, we returned to the river and have had a... More

Bank swallows trade back and forth from their nests on the far shore of the Guadalupe river as it winds its way through this lovely State Park. On a weekday in May there were hardly any other campers. Sites were nicely private and well maintained. Bathrooms could use more cleaning.
