Guadalupe River State Park is in Kendall and Comal counties on State Highway 46 some eight miles west of its intersection with U.S. Highway 281 in Comal County. The 1,938-acre park was acquired from private owners in 1975. The Guadalupe River divides the park into two sections: on the south side of the river is a 1,239-acre tract that opened as a park in 1983; on the north side is a 661-acre tract that is undeveloped and not open to the public. The heavily wooded area is home to a wide variety of wildlife, ranging from raccoons and white-tailed deer to the golden-cheeked warbler and other rare migratory birds. Park facilities include a hiking trail, camping and picnicking areas, and restrooms.
