Guadalupe River State Park is located along the boundary of Comal and Kendall counties. It was acquired by deed from private owners in 1974 and was opened to the public in 1983. The park is bisected by the clear-flowing waters of the Guadalupe River. The park is comprised of a 1,938.7-acre segment of the Texas Hill Country noted for its ruggedness and scenic beauty.
The park has 4 miles of river frontage and is located in the middle of a 9-mile stretch of the Guadalupe River. Park visitors may enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, including canoeing, fishing, swimming, tubing, picnicking, hiking and camping. The park recently opened a 5.3-mile equestrian trail that is also open to mountain biking.
Please note that "Primitive" at this park only means unimproved with no electricity but we will have water available at the campsite. This is still car camping. I will be staying Saturday night. Plan on bringing your own food and anything you would like to share. If anyone would like to plan a group meal or picnic, please start a discussion here. Please bring fire wood. There might be a burn bun. I will send out a notice a few days before the trip.
