Camping, hiking, and a river

Great spot to take the family for a day trip. We'll be back to camp out, but the hiking and sightseeing was worth the 30 mins drive.

We only had a chance to stop here for a bit on our way down to San Antonio via 281. I had always read that this was a beautiful park, but had never seen it first hand. We took some time to explore down by the river and to skip rocks for a bit. Then we went to climb on... More

I have visited in small and large groups and it is so much fun. Depending on the river depth, tubing can be a lot of fun!

The park was beautiful, clean and amazing to look at. It's defiantly worth your time and money. I enjoyed every bit of nature out there. There also was so many cactus which I enjoyed seeing because they were wild out there.

Overall, great campground in central Texas between Austin and San Antonio. About 1.5 hour drive from Austin and 1 hour from San Antonio. 2 main camping areas, Cedar Sage and Turkey Sink along with walk in camp sites for tent campers that is close to the river front. Sites are clean and have lots of shade. Cedar Sage is primarily... More

I spent a few hours here strolling from the the main parking area down to the rapids and back again. The water is so blue and set against the sand stone bluff create an amazing backdrop. As you move down stream, the huge old cypress trees along the banks of the river provide some beautiful pictures and much needed shade.... More

My wife and I spent a day at this great state park. We initially felt that the $7 per person entry fee was a bit steep. However, for a full day's fun maybe not. The area around the river is truly beautiful. The Autumnal colours were simply stunning. We followed a number of trails which were short and easy to... More

My husband and I went hiking in the Guadalupe State Park. The parking near the river is great and we were quite suprised that there are parking lots all over the park, that allow you to stop in different areas and hike around the wild areas further away from the actual river. There were ample picnic tables equipped with bbq... More

I'm easy pleased with the beauty of nature and this river park never disappoints me. The focal point of the park is a bend in the river where a bluff rises high over the park picnic area and a the beach to enter the water. There is plentiful parking, picnic tables along the shore, walking paths, hiking trails, drink machines,... More
