On the beautiful Guadalupe River, the Rio Guadalupe Resort is a picturesque RV park in Texas Hill Country. It’s just a few minutes' drive from Canyon Lake and 30 minutes from New Braunfels. It's also halfway between the vibrant cities of San Antonio and Austin.
RV camping at the Rio Guadalupe Resort includes access to full hookup sites, with water, sewer, and 30 or 50 amp electrics. There are pull-through spaces, each of which has gravel grounds that extend to 70 or 80 feet in length. In addition, you’ll find cable TV and complimentary Wi-Fi at the resort, as well as laundry facilities, hot showers, and clean restrooms.
Recreational facilities at the Rio Guadalupe Resort include an outdoor swimming pool and a children’s playground, not to mention a covered pavilion where you can enjoy a picnic. You can rent inner tubes, rafts, and kayaks from the resort office and pick up any essentials at the on-site convenience store.
Camping at Rio Guadalupe Resort is a good base for visiting Canyon Lake, which lies just eight minutes’ drive from the RV park. It was established by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1958 along the Guadalupe River to provide flood control and water conservation for the downstream communities. Canyon Lake is now a hub for recreation, with eight different parks scattered along its shores. You can soak up the lake views from the Canyon Overlook Park or cast a line to see what’s biting from the fishing dock in Cranes Mill Park, with two marinas where you can rent boats and jet skis.
A 35-minute drive west of the Rio Guadalupe Resort is the Guadalupe River State Park, which encompasses four miles of river frontage where you can paddle, fish, tube, and swim. Begin your visit at the Discovery Center, where you’ll find hands-on discovery boxes and nature-themed exhibits, then explore some of the 13 miles of hiking and biking trails. Highlights include the 2.8-mile Painted Bunting Trail and the short Barred Owl Trail, which accesses a scenic river overlook. Keep your eyes peeled for endangered golden-cheeked warblers that nest in the park’s juniper woodlands. Or, you can kayak or canoe along the Guadalupe River, with the park serving as the starting point for the five-mile Guadalupe River State Park Paddling Trail.
A one-hour drive north of the Rio Guadalupe Resort is the Pedernales Falls State Park, which sprawls across a former working ranch east of Johnson City. It centers around the Pedernales River that provides a peaceful setting for swimming, tubing, and fishing. Around 20 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails wind through the park, including the short Twin Falls Nature Trail that offers picturesque views of Pedernales Falls. If you’re after a more challenging hike, follow the six-mile Wolf Mountain Trail or mountain bike on the Juniper Ridge Trail.
Campsites at Rio Guadalupe Resort are within walking distance to a general store where you can stock up on grocery supplies. There are also gas stations nearby if you need to fill up your RV rental and a handful of eateries that include a bakery, a pizzeria, and a barbecue restaurant. Make the 30-minute drive into New Braunfels, and you'll find a more extensive choice of dining establishments and services.
While you’re in New Braunfels, take time to explore the early-19th-century German buildings within the Gruene Historic District. Highlights include Gruene Hall, which was built in 1878 by Heinrich D. Gurene and is billed as the “oldest continually run dance hall in Texas.” It’s changed little since it was initially established and features a large dance floor and a small stage where blues and Americana bands perform.
If you’re traveling with kids, don’t miss a visit to the Schlitterbahn, a sprawling water park that boasts more than 50 attractions. Aside from a lazy river, thrilling water slides, and several pools, the park also features food concessions and shaded picnic tables so you can make a day of it. Also of note is the McKenna Children’s Museum, where you’ll find exhibits that explore topics including science, technology, healthy eating, gardening, and art.
A short drive west of New Braunfels is the Natural Bridge Caverns, which are the largest known commercial caverns in Texas. It’s named for a 60-foot slab of limestone that spans the cavern’s entrance and is renowned for its impressive geological formations and speleothems.
