This 1,938-acre park is perhaps best known for the four-mile stretch of the Guadalupe River that runs through it. Four words describe this part of the river Bee-U-Tee-Full. This park can become very crowded on weekends during the summer so try to arrive early or on weekdays. That should be no surprise because the park often is listed on the top ten swimming holes lists primarily because there is a lot of access to the gorgeous Guadalupe here. Take a look at the map of the park and you should be able to find some relatively secluded spots on the river away from the developed part of the day use area. Some good campsites away from the water are at 33 and 34. Canoe, kayak and tube outfitters are located inside, upstream and downstream of the park so contact park staff for rental information. This is an absolutely sensational place to go for water recreationalists and for those who care to hike or go horseback riding. This park is a true jewel of the Hill Country. This is a nice place to go drive up camping, but you should know that the campsites are located fairly far from the river in case that is important to you. Saturday morning tours of the adjacent Honey Creek State Natural Area also are available. The park is located about 5 miles upstream from Specht’s Crossing and about 4 miles downstream from Edge Falls Road if you want to use it for a kayak trip. Pets on leash are OK and RV sites are available.
