This is an excellent park. The river is perfect for playing in. The water is safe for children. There are picnic tables near the river with barbecues if needed. The scenic view is amazing. There is a vast array of animals and birds you can spot throughout the park. There is lots of shade at your site. There is a nice little playground nearby as well. Hiking as much as you want, or leisure stroll on paved smooth roads that are awesome for bikes as well. You are accessible to many attractions nearby in New Braunfels, San Marcos and other nearby cities. Highly recommended!
While the water slides (two) are the allure, the park offers little else. There are 2 pools, but one is always closed. The pools also do not open until very late in the day (10:00am), so for those with children trying to go early and miss the sun, it is not an option. The park allows "day visitors" which over populates slides and pools, leaving little room for their "over night" guests. Customer service and professionalism are lacking. Most employed at the park are elderly, leaving a small lack of patience for children. Their day time activities also include an option for a paid craft and a free nightly movie. While bikes are convenient to get around the park, the gravel caused several to fall and injury themselves. The golf carts are an option, but at a very high cost and they are limited. The dust from the gravel also engulfs your camp when anyone passes by. Shade is limited, both at your camp and at the pool. The lake was suppose to be catch and release, but there was nothing to catch. We tried to stay a week, but left the park early dissatisfied.
