Guadalupe River State Park consists of over 1800 acres of rolling Hill Country terrain. We have over 7 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails that run through the grasslands and cedar brakes and down to the cypress-lined riverbank. The park has about half a mile of river access for fishing, swimming, kayaking, and tubing. Picnic areas with tables and charcoal barbeque grills are located near the river. Rental Kayaks and tube are available during the summer when river conditions allow, and fishing poles and tackle are available for loan on the weekends. If camping is more your style, we have almost 100 sites, ranging from walk-in tent camping in our Wagon Ford camping area, to drive-up tent camping with designated water spouts in the Cedar Sage Loop, to RV sites with water and 30-amp electricity in the Turkey Sink Loop. Fees and availability vary depending on site type and time of year; contact the park for up-to-date info. Educational activities vary by season. Saturday Night Nature programs run every Saturday evening, usually at dusk, from March through October. Subject matter varies by week and ranges from Prehistoric Hunting to Animal Adaptations to Hill Country Caves, and everything in between. In addition, every Saturday Morning at 9:00 the park hosts a hike from the historic Rust House down to Honey Creek. This guided hike takes visitors through varied Hill Country terrain and down to Honey Creek, a pristine river environment and one of the most beautiful spot in the hill country. Please check the Activities list or contact the park for more information. If a hike isn't really your thing, we also offer our newly-built Discovery Center. This kid-oriented building hosts a number of exhibits displaying the natural resources in the park and the surrounding area and offers kids and adults alike to take a closer look at the natural world around them. The Discovery Center also loans our Explorer Backpacks, containing binoculars, magnifying glasses, guidebooks, and other tools for explorers of all ages to use while in the park. Backpacks can be borrowed on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Guadalupe River State Park also offers custom hikes, programs, and other resource-based programming for schools church groups, scout troops, and many other organizations. Please contact the park, and we'll be happy to set up a program to include any curriculum or merit badge requirements you may have. We look forward to seeing ya'll at the park!
