Guadalupe Canoe Livery

This campground has over a half mile of river frontage and they rent kayaks, canoes, rafts and tubes for use on the enticing Guadalupe River right next to the 281 bridge. The best way to get down the river is by kayak, so you should seriously consider renting one even if you have never paddled before. Trust us, it will be fun. If you prefer tubing and want to avoid the crowds in New Braunfels and San Marcos, this could be just the place for you because there is not a lot of tubing that takes place on this stretch of the river and it is a very pretty portion of the stream.  Be sure to ask how long the trips will take so you don’t end up spending six hours on the river when the flows are down.  You can come here to spend the day swimming, or to camp overnight, which is always a nice option. Pets are ok if kept on a leash. There are several nice paddle trip alternatives up in this neck of the woods with one of the more exciting being the trip down to Rebecca Creek Road where you will paddle through Mueller Falls and Rust Falls. Both of the falls can be tricky if you don’t have a fair amount of experience on the water so watch out or you will get tossed out of the boat. There is a chute at each of the falls on the left bank if you don’t want to take the plunge. The friendly staff know a lot about the river and will be able to help you prepare for your paddling trip so be sure to ask them about the river conditions before heading down to the water. They also have hot showers in case you are feeling all sticky after your paddle trip.
