  Established in 1971, Guadalupe Canoe Livery is committed to your safe and enjoyable river experience. Campgrounds dating back to the 1930's. We offer six canoe, kayak, raft, or tube trips on the Upper Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake from Nichol's Landing to the 311 bridge.

  We are not under any of the New Braunfels restrictions. Enjoy floating the Beautiful Upper Guadalupe River as it twists and turns through private property and the Guadalupe River State Park. This 23-mile stretch of river has several Class I & II rapids and waterfalls.

  The Upper Guadalupe River above Canyon Lake is about 15 degrees warmer than the River below, which gets its water released from the bottom of the dam. We have Jackson Riviera kayaks, Hyside rafts, and high-grade tubes that come with or without a bottom. Come on a whim, first come first serve.
