Texas whitewater, Guadalupe River

Comal county, Canyon Dam to Cypress Bend Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS II-III(V)     22 miles
 
This is a fun river to kayak.  Although some parts are very slow open water, there are usually plenty of tubers to keep it interesting.  Me and mine really love this ride.  The best put in is somewhere around the first crossing right above huaco springs rapids.  From there, your next take out is Gruene.  We get out at Gruene but the Parks and Wildlife website list the next public take out a little further downstream but remember when you enter
    New Braunfels you have to follow their laws such as the limit on the size of the ice chest you can have with you. There are four solid rapids on this run.  You need to be sure the water is flowing.  During the summer, this
is sometimes the only river flowing to assure the survival of the rainbow trout. Says Paddler

Recreational releases from Canyon Dam make this beautiful stretch of river runable year-round. There are numerous springs to warm up in in the winter. Be early in the summer time to beat the party crowd, and enjoy the rapids, scenery, and wildlife before it disappears behind the college kids with their radios, and kegs. Says Ben

If
 
you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Texas you might find the rivers here a bit more manageable, so keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners. The beautiful scenery of Comal County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. If you hurry you can run this stretch in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so pack your sleeping bag. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great reasons to come. There are some good hotels near the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination.
