Kerrville State Recreation Area is on the Guadalupe River and U.S. Highway 173, three miles southwest of Kerrville in Kerr County. The 517.2-acre park was given to the state by the city of Kerrville in 1934. During the mid-1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed picnic areas and other structures. Facilities include a boat ramp, toilets, a lighted fishing pier, a dining hall, and an amphitheater.
