About the area: San Marcos River

The analysis has found the San Marcos River to be one of the most popular recreational rivers in Texas. The river rises at Aquarena Springs within the city limits of San Marcos, flowing approximately 75 miles through heavily wooded banks to join the Guadalupe River. A wide variety of water types, including a few rapids, many small riffles and an abundance of clear, quiet pools are present. Average width of the stream is 30 feet; however, it narrows between steep banks in its lower reaches. In periods of low water, numerous log jams are found, especially downriver.
