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.

The Guadalupe River State Park is just one small component to the river's pathway to fun on the water. 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.

We visited during Spring Break 2105 during a wet, rainy week. However, the campsites were beautiful, the trails were long and clear, the river was clean, and it's beautiful. We camp regularly and this was our first visit here. It's kind of upscale to what we're used to with fancy, clean bathroom, but we aren't complaining. We attended the Ranger's... More

This park is beautiful. There are trails, both wooded and one along the water. Birds are plentiful for bird watchers. The park is easy to get to. About 30 minutes outside San Antonio. They have picnic areas, and plenty of parking. Texas State Parks are well worth a visit.

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
