The campsites had nice flat compressed sandy spaces for tents and lots of trees. We were there for three days and two nights January 1-3. We like the park, but the bathrooms... read more

This is one of my favorite state parks to go hiking and play in the water. It is awesome that it is only 25 minutes away from my house. The trails are very well maintained and you can get a good hike in for an hour or so. I have also camped overnight here and the facilities were close by... More

The campsites had nice flat compressed sandy spaces for tents and lots of trees. We were there for three days and two nights January 1-3. We like the park, but the bathrooms were really dirty. On the 1st, I thought it was due to a full park during the holidays, but two days later, the trash and floors had not... More

We did talk to some others who said there were a couple of sites open... we drove in, the park host said, "Yes, we have 4 sites open" and escorted us to the one we stayed. The next morning... More

This is my Texas "Beach" Cool quick running water. Soft stone entry along the Guadalupe River. Rock face layers across from beach. Definitely wear water shoes. Nice BBQ and Picnic areas by the River and up above by the parking. Camping sites are away from the river and just that camping sites.

Seems to be very family friendly. Pretty park, very peaceful. Easy trails, nothing extravagant, but nice.

A very pretty place to relax and recharge. The hiking trails are also beautiful but not well signed. Lots of quite shady spots on a hot day.

The Guadalupe River State Park is right down the road from my house. We often take family from out of town to enjoy the river and have a picnic.

I just spent this weekend at the Guadalupe River in TX, and I definitely recommend this place for everybody , the river itself is beautiful , clean and not dangerous at all if you act responsibly . It could be crowded during the big summer holidays but , everybody is relaxed and looking to have a peaceful time.

I live close by and often the wife and I go there in the afternoon after work just to relax. It's a great place to visit during the week and away from major holidays when it gets incredibly crowded. Be aware that during the dry season there might be a burn ban in the county, therefore you can't use the... More
