Many folks come here to swim, but the park is more than a great swimming hole. Beautiful scenery and colorful history await, just a short drive from San Antonio and Austin.

With four miles of river frontage, the Guadalupe River takes center stage at the park. Step away from the river to find the more peaceful areas.

On the river, you can swim, fish, tube and canoe. While on land, you can camp, hike, ride mountain bikes or horses, picnic, geocache, and bird watch. We loan fishing gear for use in the park.

Learn more about the park’s natural features at the Discovery Center. Take a closer look at nature using magnifying glasses, microscopes and binoculars. Explore hands-on discovery boxes and exhibits. Ask about borrowing an explorer pack!

Shop at our park store for gifts, firewood, ice and convenience items.

We need your help! Volunteers conduct wildlife surveys, staff the Discovery Center, and help with school groups. Visit the Friends of Guadalupe River State Park and Honey Creek State Natural Area website for information. Learn more about volunteer opportunities at state parks.
