Discover Guadalupe River State Park, TX

The Guadalupe River snakes through this 4,300-acre tract of Texas Hill Country, offering endless recreational activities for avid adventurers. Both Texans and tourists love tubing, fishing, and swimming in the river. Landlubbers will find an extensive network of trails to explore here as well, which offer glimpses of the park’s diverse array of flora and fauna.

The park’s convenient location under an hour from San Antonio and an hour and a half from Austin makes it an excellent stopover for RV road trippers headed for the big cities. It’s also the end destination for thousands of anglers, hikers, and nature enthusiasts keen to soak up the park’s tranquil ambiance. The best way to experience everything this serene swath has to offer is to set up camp for a night or five. Book an RV in Kendall County and start planning your Guadalupe getaway.

Getting Outdoors

The best way to kick off your Guadalupe State Park camping adventure is to explore the park on foot. The park’s 13-mile hiking trail network offers paths suitable for all ages and abilities. For an easy walk chock full of scenic views, take the quarter-mile Barred Owl Trail. Pause at the overlook to take in the river. The Golden-cheeked Warbler Trail, named for the endangered bird species which lives in the park, is just shy of a mile long but features steep descents along the way.

After you’ve worked up a sweat out on the trails, make your way down to the Guadalupe River to take a dip. Anglers without their own equipment can borrow a rod and reel from the park office and cast a line in search of rainbow and brown trout. Just make sure to follow state regulations regarding harvesting. Tubing and canoeing are also popular pastimes on the river.

Once you’ve finished adventuring, unwind with a picnic lunch and watch for wildlife. Deer, gray foxes, and armadillos are relatively common sights at the park. If you’re lucky, you might spot a bobcat skulking through the forest. Birdwatchers who keep their eyes on the sky have the chance of seeing dozens upon dozens of species. Sharp-shinned hawks, several owl species, swallows, and vireos all inhabit this outdoor oasis. Be sure to grab a birding checklist from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Website.

Camping at Guadalupe State Park

Guadalupe River State Park campers will have plenty of choice at the park’s two campgrounds, offering a total of 85 sites. Turkey Sink Campground provides water and 50-amp electric hookups, while Cedar Sage provides 30-amp service. Generators are prohibited in Cedar Sage. Like most Texas state parks, Guadalupe River offers clean restrooms, showers, picnic tables, and grills.

If your campervan rental is longer than 20 feet, you’ll want to book a site at Turkey Sink. Sites here fit rigs up to 55 feet long, though maximum length varies between sites. In addition to the RV camping sites, Guadalupe State Park features a walk-in campground with nine primitive sites. You can reserve your space up to 11 months in advance, and pets are welcome to tag along for your Texas state park camping trip.

Exploring the Area

Before you pack up the motorhome rental and set out, stop by the park office and grab a souvenir to commemorate your Guadalupe River State Park camping trip. I-10 and Highway 281 are both convenient to the park, making it easy to extend your adventures through the Lone Star State. You’ll find the nearest gas stations along Highway 281 in the community of Spring Branch.

If you’re craving some time in the big city, take the 45-minute drive due south into San Antonio. Most first-time visitors to the Alamo City will want to see the Alamo itself and wander down the Riverwalk. If you’ve been there, done that, why not pay a visit to the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center? Here, you can see the largest mural of the Virgin Mary in the world. The history buffs in your crew will want to see the San Antonio Missions National Historic Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which protects four Spanish missions that still host worship services.

Prefer to steer clear of hustling, bustling San Antonio? Set your sights on the quainter locale of New Braunfels. This spot will be an absolute treat for the pint-sized campers, complete with zoos, waterparks, and children’s museums galore. First stop is Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo, where your little ones can enjoy hands-on encounters with a Burmese python, brown lemur, or a Texas tortoise. After you’ve had your fill of animal fun, head to Schlitterbahn Waterpark to beat the summer heat.

No matter where you decide to go next, you’ll enjoy proximity to the busy urban centers and peaceful natural areas for which Texas Hill Country is famous.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership. With a rental, you can book the perfect rig for any trip just like you would a car or hotel. With Outdoorsy, you rent directly from the RV owner but get the backing of programs like roadside assistance, insurance, and stellar support from real, live people 24/7.

On average, you can expect to pay between $75 and $150 per night to rent most small trailers and campervans. Larger trailers and motorhomes could cost $100 to $250 per night. Renting an RV for a longer time can be even more affordable–a week or month-long rental could average out to less than $60 per day.

Are there RV rentals with unlimited mileage?

Yes! Each RV owner can choose whether to offer unlimited miles on their vehicles. You’ll be able to see if unlimited mileage is an option on any listing you check out. If unlimited miles are not available, you’ll be able to see what is included with the base rate and what extra miles will cost.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

Are there RV rentals near me?

RV rentals are available all over the country! Whether you want to pick up an RV near home to set out an epic road trip or if you want to have one ready at your destination, you can search by location for any type of rig.

RV rental vs buying?

Renting an RV is an affordable way to get all the benefits of RV travel without the maintenance and overhead of ownership. It’s also a great way to try out the lifestyle and different types of rigs before you take the plunge and buy your own. Already own an RV? Consider renting yours out to bring in some extra income.
