Activities Available:Tube Rental Services
The club offers tubes for use on this very popular portion of the stupendously gorgeous San Marcos River and they shuttle visitors from the take out point at the Rio Vista water park back to the rental office. This stretch of the river is one of the most beautiful places to go tubing in an urban area in the Hill Country. This river is very flat so you won’t have to worry about any rapids throwing the youngsters off of the tubes if you are looking for a place to bring the kids. It is also a nice stretch of the river if you are looking for a leisurely float down a stream, but it can get crowded with college students just so you know. You also will need to watch out for local teenagers who like to “cannon ball” from the bridges and you probably want to avoid having the younguns float down the chute alone at the dam and make sure they have on a PFD. Please be sure not to dislodge any of the Texas Wild Rice while you are floating down the river. The trip down to the triple drop is only an hour long, but you can take the shuttle back up to the beginning and come down the river as many times as you want. From IH 35 take Aquarena Springs Dr. towards campus. Turn left on Charles Austin a little before you get to the river and follow the signs. One other thing, when you get off the shuttle watch out or you could get smacked in the head with a tube. Those high school kids unloading the trailer can be a little mischievous at times.
