Pets on leashes are always welcome.
You can also make camping reservations at the Medina River Natural Area for $20 a night. You will need to create an online account and make reservations in advance!

Alright, so this one isn’t much for hiking, but its a great place if you’re looking to cool down for the day! River Acres Park offers great access to the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels. Bring a tube or some chairs and set up shop in the river. This is a great spot for kids and animals to cut loose and enjoy the sunshine!

“Everything is bigger in Texas.”
With over 40 miles to explore, Government Canyon State Natural Area is repping the BIG TX. Enjoy a day of walking, hiking, and biking. There’s also a playscape area for kids to enjoy themselves too!
In our opinion, one of the best parts of the Government Canyon is the dinosaur tracks. Scientists believe that the footprints were left behind over 110 million years ago by Acrocanthosaurus and Sauroposeidon dinos. So cool!
Pro Tip: Please reserve and pay your $6 entrance fee either online or by phone to ensure space availability.
