  • This is a gem. You can imagine what it would be like to own a precious piece of the Texas Hill Country all your own. Set along a limestone bluff, the Guadalupe flows magnificently with clarity and color through the park. Both primitive and fully-featured campsites are available for use. Trails lead down along the river to the rapids and up through the natural meadows. Picnic tables and day use areas abound. Great spot for a picnic or for an extended stay.
  • Decided to take the kids here for spring break. It was so pretty and the water is so clear. My kids loved playing in the water. We also did a few of there hiking trails, which were very nice. The Park Rangers were all so nice and helpful. I will definitely be back.
  • Great place to camp near San Antonio. They have walk in tent sites and drive sites for tents / RVs. I recommend walk in site #93. You'll be able to hear the river from that site. It also has its own secret trail which goes down to the water. The racoons are very aggressive here. Not 5 minutes after arriving they were creeping around our site waiting for an opportunity to steal our food. Be very careful with securing food here.
  • Good place to camp and fish. When we went, their wasnt enough water to swim. You kinda had to be belly down or back down. It was fun. Restrooms are real clean and they have hand soap.
  • Excellent camping facilities, great family fun, great riverfront stretch to plop down and take a dip with the kids. We even spotted this little Fawn in the underbrush. Kids will never forget that
