Best known for tubing on the Guadalupe River, this park has so much more to offer

With four miles of river frontage, the Guadalupe River, where you can swim, fish, tube, kayak, and canoe takes center stage at the park. Step away from the river to explore 13 miles of hiking and biking trails, as well. The trails range from the 2.86-mile Painted Bunting Trail to the .26-mile Barred Owl Trail, which leads you to a scenic overlook of the river.

The park is also a great place to camp, hike, ride mountain bikes or horses, picnic, geocache and bird watch. 

The Gua­da­lu­pe River is the park's most out­stand­ing natural fea­ture. Imposing bald cypress trees line the banks. On its winding path through the park, the river courses over four natural rapids. Two steep limestone bluffs reflect the river’s erosive power.

Trees in lower elevations and bottomlands include sycamore, elm, basswood, pecan, walnut, persimmon, willow, and hackberry. In the uplands away from the river, the limestone terrain is typical of the Edwards Plateau. Oak and juniper woodlands fill this area, with some grasslands mixed in.

An area of virgin Ashe juniper woodlands provides a nesting habitat for the endangered golden-cheeked warbler. In addition to numerous species of birds, the park supports a wide variety of wild animals. These include white-tailed deer, coyote, gray fox, skunk, raccoon, opossum, bobcat, and armadillo. Other smaller species live here, as well.
