KL Ranch Cliffside Tubing

KL Ranch Cliffside Tubing

The “CAN BAN” DOES NOT apply to our section of the Guadalupe River!

The Lower Guadalupe River flows from the bottom of Canyon Lake, keeping it cool, even in the heat of a Texas summer. The flow of the river is completely dependent on the release rate from Canyon Dam and is measured in cubic feet per second (cfs).

Ideal recreational flow for the Guadalupe are between 100-500 cfs. Even at low flows, KL Ranch Cliffside has trips available without having to walk. The river is considered dangerous over 1,000 cfs and tubing is not recommended.

Before you take your trip, “know the flow” with our up to the minute river level below.

Tube Pricing

We have trips starting at 1 hour to 8 hours, and several in between.
Trip times and drop offs do change depending on the flow of the water.

There is no deposit required for campers of KL Ranch Cliffside. If you are not camping here we can take your car keys as a deposit, you don’t want to take them on the river with you anyways!! If for some reason you lose or damage a tube the cost is $20 per tube.

KL Ranch Cliffside DOES allow campers to bring their own tubes, rafts, and other private equipment. We offer a shuttle service for customers who choose to bring their own equipment. Prices and trips do vary and may be different from trips offered with a tube rental. When renting a tube your shuttle and parking are included.

While we do offer this service, we also recommend renting tubes! When you rent a tube it is kinda like having insurance. If something happens while you are on the river you can stop at any river outfitter and they will either help you out, or call us to help you! For example; if your tube springs a leak, the place you stop can trade you or call us, and we will bring you a new tube! This is not an option if you have your own equipment.

Please call us at (830) 626-3663 for group rates (over 20) and information.

KL Ranch Cliffside is outside the city limits and if you rent from us, your entire float will be outside the city limits. So feel free to drink (responsibly) out of any can of your choice!
