“Floating with a family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I have floated MANY times throughout the years, being a Texas girl. Some of my best college day road trips were to float the river. This was the first time I have floated with my family. It was a friend of mine and our 2 daughters are best friends. We were a nervous wreck, even though the girls both had on life jackets, not the cheap ones given for free at the tube rentals, but ones purchased previously. The river was low, so the young girls would zip through the rapids and we would get stuck, and have to stand to get our pull out tube with us. After the day, the girls had a blast and we were worried for nothing. They loved and were safe, and even though they made it to the end before us, people helped them to pick up their tubes and leave on the side. My advice, no cooler tube. I was in the ALL the time handing out sandwiches, chips, snacks... Next time I will give the gives their own small cooler to put between them so they can get their own food when hungry or thirsty. We love the river, and I am more confident now to take the kids. I did not give them enough credit. She is already talking about going again next year.

“tubing in Texas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

The cubic feet per second (flow rate) flowing out of the Canyon Lake Dam determines the level of fun or lack there of you will experience. Check the flow level, http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=08167800, is a good place to start. Anything between 120 cfs and 400 cfs is fun, between 400 cfs and 600 cfs is getting challenging, and above that you need to rent a raft. Beautiful scenery between the dam and Gruene.

“Not much water for floating”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

First experience wasn't the best. We made due, but trekked most of it in ankle deep water walking on rocks.

“Summit Cabins on the Guadalupe River”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Nice with small, rustic cabins, great pools and all, but the river is not running enough to do any whitewater floats unfortunately. Need some more rain!
