Tips from locals
When tubing the downtown area of the San Marcos river, this is the end of the ride. A great swimming hole with waterfall spillways. Our outdoor city pool is located here along with our children's "playscape" for the little ones to enjoy. Ivar's River Pub sits across the river.
Really great place to hang out in a park next to the river. This is where the tube chute/kayak course is located.
A beautiful park on the San Marcos River, it can get crowded during the summer on the weekends.
The cold water is clear and the dam provides a nice ride down on your tube!
Because year-round, the San Marcos River flows from its springs, so year-round there are rapids and moving water available here. It is the only reliable whitewater in Texas.
