CAMPING on the Guadalupe River

Camping on the Guadalupe River, and BBQ….yeah!

The Shanty River Center has provided camping on the Guadalupe River for over 10 years. We have 2 camping locations available for your convenience. Both locations have river access to the camping grounds. Camping on the Guadalupe River, and river access for tubing on the Guadalupe. Shanty River Center, also has a Tiki Bar, and Ice House on Location, as well as Guido’s BBQ, to add to your camping experience. Shanty 2 is our camp ground that is closest to our tube rental location; it has public restrooms, showers and is near Guido’s BBQ. If you haven’t tried Guido’s BBQ, then you haven’t tried the best “good ol” Texas BBQ, from this side of the Pecos!! So if you are sun drenched, after a day tubing, try Guido’s BBQ, followed by music and good times at the Shanty Tiki Bar, while on your stay. Our 2nd location is located near 4th Crossing! This location provides picnic tables, fire rings, public showers and restrooms.
