Things to Do

Hole Up on the Guadalupe River

As you travel into Hunt, Texas about a mile or so up the highway, you will see the Hunt Crossing (low water bridge crossing.) There is a small man-made dam on the left side and a natural swimming hole on the right. Parking can be tricky, though. You may have to find a place further to the north and walk back. It would be a good time to buy some ice, drinks, and snacks in the Hunt Store or eat in the cafe.

After you splash and float in this refreshing hole, trek southeastward through some very mild, bubbling rapids to where this north fork rejoins with the south fork, which in turn flows back to Schumacher Crossing. Again, please respect the folks’ private docks along the way. You are floating past their backyards, after all.

So, make your accommodation plans, and next summer you will be ready to pack up the tubes, floats, and kids for a fun day on the Guadalupe River between Ingram and Hunt. Just remember to deposit your trash in the receptacles by the picnic areas.
