We stayed at the Gruene River Outpost Lodge and was very pleased with the location and the ease to / from the river. For the price you will pay in this town during peak season this is a great location for river floaters. We really enjoyed the whole property and how it caters to families as well as friends just...

We stay here at least once a year. You can fit 4 in the bigger cabins. It's really all that you need if you aren't looking for luxury, There is a little kitchenette, a shower, a small dining table, a sink, a restroom and an a/c. We just go to float the river and enjoy Gruene/New Braunfels. The room is... More

We were right on the river. It was so convenient to be able to walk out of your room, rent a tube, and they will drive you to where your float begins! Everyone who worked there was so very nice! Overall, it was a very pleasant experience, and I am looking forward to staying there again next summer!

My husband and I decided to roadtrip for our honeymoon. We stayed two nights at the Outpost and absolutely loved it! The cabins were right on the river, awesome picnic areas. Tubing was super convenient with the outfitter right on the premise. Beds were a little squeaky, toilet wabbly but we werent looking for high dollar luxury. Sitting outside, listening... More

This place has a great location for all you want to do in the area. We stayed two separate nights and were able to check in early both times. Enjoyed sitting on the banks of the river with a tasty beverage watching toobers, fish and turtles. This is a lodge not a 5 star hotel so think "camping" and you... More

Nice room, AC cranked. Needed extra blankets and we got a few more from the office. Lost the keys in the river, the manager was fine with getting us two more sets at no charge. Stayed for four nights and didn't have any problems at all. With the low water lately the river is a little stagnant, but the swimming... More

I will NEVER stay here again. The floor appears to not have been swept or mopped in years. There's mold on the ceiling in the bathroom and in the microwave. A cabinet door in the kitchen is missing, my husband found a 2 inch cockroach in the bathroom that was dead & stuck to the floor. The a/c works but... More

The Gruene River Outpost Lodge is so beautiful and just amazing. My daughter and I came down on vacation last month in June and we had a blast! Everything was clean and well kept. We had a wonderful time at the river and the service was immaculate. The Manager, Keven Brinneman was one of the nicest, polite, and accommodating people... More

Stayed in a river view room that was completely unkempt. The shades in the room did not work - luckily we brought along an extra blanket that we were able to use to try to cover the window, so we had a bit of privacy and didn't have the outside light shining into our room all night long. The water... More

If you have standards at all for a good night's sleep, for a place that looks like it is maintained properly, for a quiet place to relax, keep looking, don't look here. For the price of $140/night (discounted rate at that), you get toilets that wobble, bathroom walls that are poorly patched from rot, entry doors that require a jiggle... More
