On our latest adventure, we ventured a couple of hours outside of Austin into New Braunfels. New Braunfels is known for many attractions, but mostly the Guadalupe River. The Guadalupe River is a well-known source of adventure and fun. The river is rather small, being only about 230 miles long. Despite that, it is one of the best rivers you will find in Texas because here you can do a little of everything!

In the New Braunfels, San Marcos, and Boerne area, the river is used mostly of tubing, where people use tire-shape inflatables and just let the current take them. In fact, the activity is so popular that large events such as Float Fest, where many artists perform while the crowd simply enjoys the concert from the water, happens at least once a year, and many other smaller events and campgrounds attract tourists solely based on the fact that one can just float the river.

Photo from TheBuzz Magazine Of FloatFest2015In this case, we rented a small patch of camping ground from Mountain Breeze Camp. Because it was technically during the off-season, our stay was only $15 per night, but seeing how the place is extremely popular, it would be recommended to call before heading to find out more about season prices, and availability. Of course, there are other camps on the same road, so do not be discouraged if this one camp is full.

One of the things that caught my attention about the park, were the cats. The park has several cats roaming around. Well kept, and well taken care of, of course. While I did not ask management about them, I can only assume that they are there to take care of vermin and to scare the raccoons at night. Even so, the cats are by no means a nuisance. I was impressed by how well behaved they were. At no point did the cats try to steal any of the fish I had grilled from the table, unlike the raccoons. Which stole all of the smaller fish we had caught from the bucket. So remember to close your buckets and containers to prevent similar situations.

 

Overall, my experience in Mt. Breeze Camp was superb. The fresh smell of nature in the morning, the slow flowing blue water from the river and the company of good friends is what gives this place its magic (friends not included in the park. You must bring your own).

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year
    old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
    to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
