We met a group of friends for a day of floating on the river. The prices are 5 star but the place is not. We rented one of the renovated duplexes with a full kitchen because we were the host room. It was clean. They are shorthanded in housekeeping and forgot enough pillowcases but brought them when asked. Plenty of... More

This place was perfect for our 'Girls Weekend' stay in Texas. There were 4 of us in a room. Plenty of space for luggage. Kitchen area was just what we needed. Not too fancy, but definitely had all of the amenities. The pool was great. It was open into the evening, and had plenty of lights to make swimming safe... More

Where to start? Geez....this place was just terrible. Went to bring the family for a last summer outing before school and I booked this place thinking it would be a fun place for my girls. I had a full conversation with the guy behind the desk for about 30 mins before I even booked. He assured me there would be... More

My husband and I came to New Braunfels for our 1yr wedding anniversary and we stayed at this lodge. Place needs to be updated and needs basic necessities in the rooms! Great location next to the Guadalupe river. The Bullfrog tube company they have on site is higher in the price than others in the area. Was some false advertisement... More

The location of this place could not be beat! But when I made the reservation I asked about tubing (toobin') on the river because of the recent flooding in the area. I was told there was no problem, the cost was $18, must be cash and it was located right there on the grounds. Turns out the Guadalupe River was... More

I have enjoyed the Gruene River Outpost for annual reunions for well over ten years. The location is right on the Guadalupe River with large, well kept grounds interspersed with enormous pecan trees and is very peaceful. It is a perfect place for friends or family to gather in an environment surrounded by fun activities associated with New Braunfels, Gruene... More

I have been staying at the Gruene River Outpost Lodge each year for over 15 years. There have been a few ownership changes during that time and the new owners are pumping some money into the property (several rooms and the pool were under renovations). We had several rooms in our party and the remodels/updates had already begun. We keep... More

As a regular visitor over many years I have seen The Gruene River Outpost have its ups and downs. On our latest visit we were delightfully surprised at the improvements being made under new ownership. Our room and been freshly painted, floors updated, new shower enclosure, new television with satellite, and there were many signs of exterior upgrades as well.... More

This is a great location for a larger group to spend time together, over looks the river and has large community spaces. Right across the street from river rafting/tubing outfit so no driving required. Slowly being renovated by the new owners.

Wow, the new owners have updated the rooms. New floors, paint, flat screen tv. Very clean. It is much improved over last year. They have tube rentals and a great riverside location. Plan on bringing family back for a weekend later this year!!!!!!
