Most folks go here for bird-watching. There are excellent blinds (you're completely indoors) that are very comfortable. There are some hiking trails, but these are not extensive. One frequently overlooked feature of this park are the fossils. Follow the trail from the first parking area and you'll find your way to the fossils in the riverbed. Don't expect large ones;...

Just passing through the area and decided to go off the beaten path. Very nice place to have a picnic, float in the river and enjoy nature. River was calm and pleasant. NOT a busy place at all, which made it even more enjoyable

Along the marked paths are fossils and my family loved scavenging through the rocks to find them. We also saw a family of fallow deer which were absolutely beautiful and it amazed our son to see them. It's a quiet and relaxing area with a river, along which are picnic tables. We would do this again.

From the reviews I was expecting to be "amazed". This place is OK, but not worth the drive. If you are bringing grandma and grandpa for a 100 yard walk and sit down picnic place, perfect. If you are looking for a hike to match the length of drive, find another spot.

Nice easy drive just off the beaten path outside of Boerne. Not too busy and great access to the Guadalupe.

A beautiful and remote area of the Guadalupe River. We actually visited on a Friday and we were almost the only people there, apart from one guy fishing. Not much in the way of facilities but perfect if you just want to get away from it all. Lots of great wildlife and hiking trails to be explored. My daughter just... More

This park is about 14 miles from Boerne, so it's rarely crowded during the week. As the name implies, it's a natural area without a lot of amenities, but right on the Guadalupe which has flowed nicely most of this year. Lots of birding and wildlife viewing opportunities, too. Pack a picnic, take a drive and enjoy this great little... More

I live about 5-6 miles from this park and I go regularly. Unfortunately it gets pretty crowded on the weekends by 8:30-9:00 am. Most of the trails are pretty easy, but Vista Loop is challenging. This time of the year the horseflies are annoying, so wear bug spray to keep them at bay. There is a water fountain and restroom... More

If your into anything from bird watching to river tubing this is the place to go. I believe I read 173 acre park with hiking/walking trails. Bird watching stations and complete river access. Stop by and check them out.
