Live oak and cedar trees in the campground. Good spacing between sites with lots of foliage to provide privacy. It is about a half mile downhill to the river. Majestic bald cypress line the river banks. There is about a half mile of river for wading, swimming, fishing and boating. The river is free flowing and clear water. The river banks are a day use area and were occupied with a number of picnic groups. There is only one restroom per camping loop. Turkey Sink restroom has showers and is clean. The other campground is for tents and is being renovated in 2018. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice state park. The slots are tight for big rigs (we have a 45'). The slots were asphalt, not level, but manageable. We did a lot of hiking, and it's decent, the trails are very shady and mostly flat. Good WiFi and phone reception. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.

This review is for Turkey Sink Campground. Good, paved (chip seal) interior roads and sites. Sites are fairly roomy back-ins; quite a few will accommodate big rigs. Sites are mostly shaded, and trees between sites provide privacy. River access is about 1/2-mile from campground loop; road leads to a pretty part of the Guadalupe River, with high bluffs, clear water, and rapids - great for fishing, wading, etc. We found the campground clean, but did not use the showers/restrooms. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

The main attraction here is the river. The Turkey Sink loop has only one restroom/shower building which suffers from calcified fixtures, ceiling mold/mildew and filth in corners and along the seams, the cleaning schedule seems erratic. It would benefit from an internal pressure washing and several gallons of bleach solution. Otherwise, campsites are maintained and clean. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Park police use a pickup and speed radar. Comal County sheriff and Bulverde police patrol heavily on Rt 46 near the mall area by Rt 281. Everything you need except laundry is near the intersection of 46 & 281. Used laundry was in Borne and San Antonio. River holds catfish, bass, perch and others.

We were here for 3 nights and had a blast. Great hiking trails, and swimming/floating in the river. Some of the sites may be a bit far from the shower house. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Travel Trailer.

We didn't really venture out too far here, with the exception of groceries at an HEB nearby. There was plenty for us to do in the park, and I'd go back again. New Braunfels and San Antonio are close.

We stayed here for 2 nights, for the hiking and paddling on the river. The facility was very nice, as was the staff. Wonderful place for a family day-trip or for a week's stay. We would definitely go back! We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park about 25 miles from San Antonio....we love the state park setting, its quiet and your site is mostly secluded from the others....we had full hookups but not all the sites are....most of the sites will handle a big rig, there are 3 different camping areas here but the turkey sinks campground is the only one that can handle big rigs...our site was level and all hookups worked great...we picked up alot of local channels with antenna and our ATT cell service worked great and used our hotspot for wifi...restrooms were clean and plenty of hot water....the only reason I did not give it a 10 rating is because they charge you 7$ a person per day entrance fee even if you are camping, so although we paid 24$ a night the total cost per day was 38$....of course this is if your out of state and don't have a Texas park pass....but it was worth it because the park is beautiful....

This is a quiet wooded park with Guadalupe River access. The sites vary in length and we had to try a second site in order to fit comfortably. Our experience in Texas State Parks has always been very positive. The rangers are very knowledgeable and the facilities are always clean.

The river is the big draw for this park. San Antonio is only 40 miles south. We toured the missions in SA and found the tours excellent. The town of Bourne (pronounced Bernie) is 20 west and very quaint.

Quite tight. Older park. In general, designed mainly for RVs 30' and under. Narrow sites and only a few sites suitable for RVs 35-40' wth slide-outs and awnings. Lots of overhanging trees, especially at site entrances, making it difficult to back in. No pull-through sites. It is nice and quiet and the river is beautiful, although not visible from the camp sites. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay here. We love state parks and the secluded nature settings. This park gave us all that plus a lovely river! Reservations are not site specific so you get the best that's available. We were fortunate to get a large site for our 40' motorhome. It was nice and private and fairly quiet even though it was spring break week. No cell or 4G service on Verizon. I was able to text but rarely could complete a call. Time to enjoy back to nature! We got some OTA TV channels. I loved the Honey Creek ranger hike--don't miss it. It is on Saturdays, but I got lucky because they had an extra one due to spring break. My husband tried some fishing but spring breakers throwing rocks ruined that. Be advised that Texas parks require a $7 entrance fee per person per day. That actually increases the camping price to $38 for 2 people which is a lot for no sewer. I bought a Texas park pass ($70) since we were camping in another state park to help cut the cost a little. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We used this as a base to visit San Antonio. It was worth the 45 minute drive to be out of the city and in the country. Don't miss Old West Burgers on Rte 46 in Bulverde--delicious burgers and fries. Great gas prices at Walmart at intersection of Hwy 291 and 46.

Very quiet, wooded campsites. We were a little worried heading into the park with it being Spring Break, but we saw no problems - rangers and park hosts are constantly patrolling. The site lengths and widths vary considerably are are mixed with tent sites. We had to try several spots before finding one that would fit our 38' with slides, and even then we couldn't use our awning and the trees were just about on the roof. Our site was slightly unlevel but an easy fix. I would have given GRSP 10 stars if all the trails weren't closed due to recent rains - with cooler weather making swimming impossible, there wasn't much to do. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Fifth Wheel.

Love it there. We live 30 miles away and go there just to clear our minds. The hike to the overlook is worthwhile. We like site 57, enough trees to feel like you're secluded from neighbors. Big site, too. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed in Turkey Sink, space 52. Site was pretty level with one block needed on front tires. Real nice hiking trail down to the river, where another trail followed river for 1/2 mile. Great photography opportunities. We are also able to access Honey Creek State Natural Area for a guided hike, which the hold every Saturday at 9:00 am.
Cell coverage and OTA channels were fine and we were able to get our DISH satellite working. Will definetely stay here again. We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.
