After a good breakfast of eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns cooked outdoors (ummm good!), we'll jump on the mountain bikes to ride one or all of the trails, which usually depends upon how late we stayed up playing games. The trails are easy to moderate with a couple steep climbs but hard enough to build up a sweat which makes soaking in the river very refreshing after a fun ride.
As mentioned earlier, it's not easy to get to the river from the sites, so we usually drive to the picnic areas to spend an afternoon cooking hot dogs, burgers, or chicken and playing in the river. The swimming area has a nice flat river bottom and the water is clear, clean, and cool. I've heard mixed reviews on fishing, mostly not positive.
This is not a bad stretch of river to spend a relaxing afternoon tubing with friends and family. If you don't want to run your own shuttle service, you can call Bergheim Campground & River Outfitters and they will pick you up at the park, rent you tubes, and take you up river for a float back to Guadalupe River RV Park. Good time!
If we have the time, we'll play one of the nearby golf courses like The Hawk at Rebecca Creek or River Crossing - here is a link to locate either course and read our reviews of each course.
