I love this park because it's easy to access, they have upgraded the facilities and the dogs love it. You can get 2 good miles by the river bend and it's very calm and good exercise!

Great for biking, walking, jogging, swimming and camping. The trails are beautiful. Fun for individuals, couples, and families. Great place to disconnect from technology.

And Guadalupe River State Park gives the opportunity to see the turquoise colored river from the limestone river and bluffs. A bird station gives everyone a chance to write down the list of birds at the station. Another visit when all the trails are open!...More

We came here on a perfect day during the off-season and loved it. We want to come back to stay a couple days in the RV campground. You can hike along the river gorge or on the upper paved area. We'll definitely come back!

The park and the river are very beautiful. Some central locations are under construction and not very well organized. The small panorama museum was also closed on my visit. The water in the river is impressively crystal clear - almost 5 stars :)
