Nueces River
West of the town of Uvalde, you'll find the Nueces River. Find a nice spot and spend the day floating in clear, warm waters.

Frio River
You can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, floating and swimming in the Frio River in Uvalde County. A great place to start is at Garner State Park.

Medina River
Head out on Highway 16 toward the town of Bandera and you'll find a gem along the Medina River. Bandera City Park is along the banks of the Medina River. You'll find shade from huge trees, too.

McKinney Falls State Park
Want to go camping? McKinney Falls State Park is a great place to do that. You'll find a nice swimming hole here, along with nearly 3 miles of hike and bike trails.

Pedernales Falls State Park
Another popular state park is Pedernales Falls State Park, just about 30 miles outside of Austin. Swimming and tubing are popular activities here, so pack a picnic and make your way here.
