Large campsites, nice hiking trails, and lots of fun in the Guadalupe River. Unfortunately, ranger programs are only held on the weekends and the bathrooms are less than sparkling clean.

This place is awesome. Mainly awesome due to the river. The river is clean, flowing and beautiful. It was like a teal green color. The tubing was amazing. We entered with our own tubes here and floated for 3 1/2 hours and only had to be back before closing. Not much parking. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here while visiting San Antonio and Natural Bridge Caverns. This state park offers a lot of outdoor activities. We enjoyed a short bike ride to the river the first evening. My son took a longer and much rockier trail the second evening while we went swimming in the river. While there, we saw lots... More

Things I liked about GRSP: Relatively large campsites. We stayed in the Turkey Sink Camping Area. The spacing between sites is good and combined with the abundance of trees and undergrowth you have some semblance of privacy. Plenty of shade. The beautiful Guadalupe River, has a nice green color most of the time with fairly good visibility. Nice views, some... More

We stayed in the rv/tent sight in a tent. Our site was away from the road with lots of trees. It had a picnic table and fire ring with grill grates. Entire park was very clean! Lots of hiking trails that my 2 year old could do most of. A small playground and awesome discovery center for the kids. The... More

The river is beautiful in this state park. Camping sites are nice. Lots of trails for hiking and birding. The little nature center is a nice cool diversion for children. They offer exploring back packs you can check out for you child to use during your visit.

We camped here for 2 nights on our way west. It was rainy- quite a bit of rain actually, so all the trails were closed. River was high and fast from the rain. Overall, the park was very pretty and I'd love to go back under better river conditions. Camping spots are very private for the most part. Bathrooms were... More

My boyfriend and I take a camping trip to a different State Park every year. This park was beautiful. We love to hike and the trails they had were beautiful and long. Some of which with a beautiful view. It was very clean, and quite. Just the way we love it when we go on vacation. I will definitely recommend... More
