Texas an Out of State White Water Rafting

White Water Rafting in TexasIf you like white water rafting in Texas you don't have a whole lot choices to enjoy this fun, thrilling, and heart pumping adventure. If some of the lakes and rivers get a lot of rain (hasn't happened for the last few years and most of the Texas rivers and lakes are a little low) you might find a Texas river that has some white water rafting over some good rapids.

Texas whitewater rafting in the Hill Country rivers typically offers the opportunity to run some short whitewater rapids, small waterfalls, and across some boulder gardens. The Guadalupe River offers the best chance for white water rafting if it's running high and most of the tube rental companies have rafts for rent.

Running the Texas rivers is scenic with tall bald cypress, sycamore, pecan and live oak trees, and cliffs are crowned with mesquite, cedar and yucca and the Guadalupe River has rocky bluffs and rolling hills. Bottom line - try white water rafting in Texas on the Rio Grande River in Big Bend or try tubing down the Texas rivers or kayaking. Check out our Kayaking Page and Tubing Page for lots of good information on tube/raft rentals, rivers to run, outfitters, and more.
