Here at Jellystone Park™ we have all the ingredients for a fantastic vacation, such as access to all our attractions, dining options, daily activities, and so much more! With everything we have to offer you’ll never hear the words “I’m bored”. In addition to all the amazing things on site, there’s even more fun to be had right around the corner. Keep reading to learn all about one of our favorite nearby attractions that is a must see when visiting the area!

We all know Texas can be extremely hot, so beat the heat and cool off by adventuring to the Guadalupe River! We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful area and have access so close to our camp resort with gorgeous views right at our finger tips just a few miles away. With access like this, the options for enjoyment, relaxation, and fun are endless. Take in the beauty all around you by exploring and walking along the Guadalupe River for an enjoyable afternoon with your family on one of the available trails. For a more exciting adventure grab a kayak, canoe, or inflatable inner tube and spend the day splashing, playing, and floating along at your own pace.

If you’re hoping to pack light or do not have your own supplies, don’t worry – there are several rental options right up the street such as Shanty Tubes, River Sports Tubes, and more. There is even a shuttle service available – stop by our Ranger Station and our team would be happy to help you get it all set up! The rental places are already near the river so all you’ll need to do is arrange the shuttle or hop in your car for a quick drive.

If being in the water and floating or kayaking isn’t your thing, don’t fret there are many other ways to enjoy the river. Such as… you guessed it, fishing! Hey fisherman, why should the kids have all the fun, you deserve some excitement and relaxation too. The river is a fantastic hot spot for fishing so make sure to grab your pole and cast away. You can access great fishing spots right from our access points or explore the nearby hotspots. Certain locations are better than others so doing some research prior to departing from the park may be helpful! Please note you may need a fishing license so please come prepared. 

Apart from the fun and refreshing water activities, the Guadalupe River is also a stunning sight to be seen and not to mention is the perfect photo opportunity to capture some of the most beautiful nature around! Stretching over 250 miles, the river flows around beautiful limestone bluffs and large cypress trees that can offer some shade from the hot Texas sun.

If your trip is already planned, make sure to squeeze in some time to enjoy the local fun. If your vacation is still in the works make sure to begin planning your family vacation today, you don’t want to miss out on this summer’s best memories! Once you’re here, whether you choose to experience our favorite nearby attraction or remain at the park with us, we know you will have a vacation to remember. So pack your sunscreen, bug spray, and of course your bathing suit and get ready for the best vacation ever!
