Although part of the Guadalupe State River Park, Honey Creek State Natural Park is a world of its own. It is the perfect place to go to if you want to see what untouched Texas looks. Before the area became a state park, it was principally used by native gatherers. Unlike other parks which rely on providing visitors with numerous amenities, Honey Creek offers the natural flora and fauna of the place. One of the highlights is the guided ranger tours which give you an insider’s look on the surrounding areas.
Naturalist tours generally take place on Saturday mornings at 9 AM, and it lasts for about 2.5 hours, depending on how inquisitive the participants are. Although the trails are defined, they are not substantially improved or paved. In total, there are about ten volunteer guides who are well versed in the habitat and history of the area. A reservation is a must for these guided tours.
Although the tour is for free, it is highly recommended that visitors donate a minimum of $2 per person or $5 per family. The park boasts of two miles of guided trails which nature lovers will love. There's so much to see and discover. Don't forget to bring a camera should you go exploring as there is so much to see. The unique plants and animals are a wonder to behold.
Friends of Honey Creek, a volunteer organization, has various day and night programs available. No pets are allowed in the State Natural Area, but pooches are more than welcome in the nearby attractions such as the Guadalupe State River Park, and Blanco State Park. Dogs are allowed throughout Guadalupe State River Park and the campgrounds at no additional fee. However, they are not allowed in food service areas or in buildings.
