We stayed in cabin 1, which was awesome! The beds however were horrible. You sink in them like Fester Adams. This makes for a sleepless night and a sore morning. The cabin has a pretty full kitchen with no cookware or utensils so bring your own. It's great for rafting with the easy off so you can drink and not... More

It is unimpressive. The management staff failed to follow the wording of their Passport America agreement which clearly conflicted with their interpretation of it. They have since changed it to make it clearer. I felt their poor wording should not have left me paying more than I should have. Good business practice would have sided with the customer one would...

The location of this property at the mouth of river road is unbeatable and the grounds are well maintained. The "cabins" are a different matter. Depending on your expectations I was terribly disappointed for $350 per night. The facilities are basically manufactured housing and small. We had a three bedroom and it had one full bath and a closet with... More

The property is just beautiful. We stayed in a king cabin / 2 bdrms - comfy and clean not fancy, deck with picnic table and all cabins have little grills below. Beautiful very of the river. Stayed Feb and April 2015, going back in September and can't wait.

We opted for the 4 hour tubing trip instead of the 2 hour trip. They took us by bus and dropped us off 15 minutes from their location and it took 3 1/2 hours to float back. We were able to purchase a water camera from their gift shop and saved our phones from the possibility of an accident. Be... More

We just finished our annual New Year's trip to Rio Raft. This was our 8th year in a row. We love the place, the location and just about everything about the place. It's a beautiful and quite place to go and get away from it all. Be sure your own cooking stuff and have a great time in the peace... More

Riverfront on the Guadalupe is a premium. Little prefab cabins. Simple, minimal. Rates vary depending on the time of year. Nice people and great riverfront spot. Chilling casual river time. Here to fly fish in the Trout Trophy region. Busy in summer with river rats having a great loud time. Winter is a low key time of year.

I absolutely loved this place and can't wait to go back. We stayed in our RV, so I don't know anything about the cabins. However, I can say if they keep them up like the rest of the park, then they'll be fine. Now, they're nothing fancy. This is the river!! You shouldn't expect fancy. The staff was very nice... More
