Description

Guadalupe River State Park is a 1,938-acre state park occupying a diverse landscape within the state of Texas. Here, you can find everything from river rafting to birdwatching. This park was originally held under private ownership and wasn't purchased for public use until 1974. After this time, the State of Texas funneled several thousandsĀ of dollars into creating public buildings and updating the existing facilities, making this park something special.

The Guadalupe River has a long and historic past, with shipped goods being sent up and down the heavily populated shoreline. Nowadays, however, these waters are primarily used for swimming and rafting. Dogs are allowed on the beach provided they're on a leash and kept away from the more populated areas. These beaches are used often, so always make sure to clean up after your canine!

Guadalupe River offers several hiking trails to choose from, and they're all very friendly to pets on a leash. The 2.86-mile Painted Bunting Trail offers wonderful wooded scenery and is less challenging than some of the other, more mountainous paths. Keep in mind that some of these trails don't have many entrances and exits, so if you or your dog begin to slow down it's probably time to turn around! All of these trails are available to your dog, provided you keep them on a leash at all times.

There are 85 campsites available throughout the year, all of which offer water services. Public bathrooms are available, as well as showers for a small fee. Canines are strictly prohibited from any structures, as well as the campsites themselves.

The local SPCA offers adoption drives here every first Saturday of the month. These events are open to everyone, but they do request that you keep your canines clear, as some of these rescue animals can be agitated by the presence of additional canines.
