Guadalupe River State Park, Spring Branch

I really think Guadalupe River State Park is one of the prettiest parks!  The water is cool and clear, and perfect for relaxing!

Check out My Mommy Tips for making the most of your visit.

4.  Picnic

The park doesn’t sell food, but it does offer one of the prettiest places for having a picnic by the river!  These are day use sites, and come with a grill.

The park is busy during the summer, arrive early to get your pick of tables!


5.  The Guadalupe River

The River runs through the park, and is perfect for swimming and cooling off.  It’s not very deep at the swim area, but head up or down stream for deeper water.

There are a series of rapids along the 9 miles stretch of the river inside the park!

The park doesn’t rent tubes, but you can bring your own.


6.  Kayaks 

The park doesn’t rent kayaks, but you can bring your own.

Bergheim rents canoes, kayaks and tubes, and offers a shuttle service to Guadalupe River State Park.  Click HERE to visit their website.

7.  Camping

The park offers tent and RV camping, but not cabins.


8.  Hiking Trails

There are 12 hiking trails in the park.  We hiked the River Overlook Trail, which has, as the name implies, several places to stop and see the river below!


9.  Honey Creek State Natural Area

Honey Creek State Natural Area tours are each Saturday from 9 to 11:30am.

10.  Geocaching

The kids had a great time geocaching in the park!  There are several hidden inside the park, as well as many outside the park along the road!
