This is a very nice, small park on the Guadalupe River. It was erected to honor James Kiehl a local Vet that lost his life at a young age in combat in one of the recent wars. The park is very simple, mostly just a place to swim, fish, potch in the water and picnic. It does not have any... More

My husband and I stopped for about an hour or 2 walked along the beautiful river and the hills around the river. The park is very small but it was just right for us for a short hike and to enjoy the man species of birds all around. The memorial for James Kiehl and all serving military was tasteful and... More

I drove there with two of my granddaughters, as we were getting out of my car, in an empty parking lot, a pick up pulled up right next to us, the man got out and started taking pictures of us. I rushed my two granddaughters back into my car and drove off. Why he parked that close, when the whole... More

A beautiful spot, for reflection, exercise and to reflect on a young life sacrificed to war. Do be careful, however, if you leave the trail...there are water moccasins, etc., in the area

This is a beautiful hill country park on the Guadalupe River dedicated to a local man who lost his life serving the US in Iraq. Great place to take a nice walk, enjoy the water and hopefully reflect a bit about the young man whose name the park shares.

The Guadeloupe was clear and calm the day we visited, and although we didn't float, James Kiehl looks like a great place to put in. There is a park map in the parking area, which indicates float times a take-out points. There were several cars parked there, but no people, so I assume they were on the river. A group... More

We visited this attraction the last weekend in March. Their publications said it was open "7AM-dusk" year-around. HA! There was a chain over the entrance, and NO PARKING signs all over the place. Sorry folks, but we ignored the signs and parked in front of the entrance! This is a very small park that would be perfect for a: wedding,... More

This is nice little park for an hour or two of rest and relaxation. The river would be great for canoeing, but it is a long haul to the water from the parking area. There are several mistakes in area road map posted on the bulletin board, so be careful.
