Sites and Attractions in Guadalupe County

  • Son’s Island is a beautiful, three-and-a-half-acre island paradise! You access this private hideaway by driving across a 100-foot-long wooden bridge and once you do you discover a very special place. Large cypress and pecan trees outline the perimeter of our over 4,000 feet of lakefront land. There are 39 open-air lakeside cabanas on Son’s Island that may be rented by the day.

  • Local attractions include Lake McQueeney, touted as the "water ski capital of Texas" and numerous historic homes and buildings.

  • Son’s Blue River Camp, located along the banks of the scenic San Marcos River, has many of the amenities that made Son’s Island so buzzworthy, but this newer property offers two-story cabanas for a tree house “wow” factor and provides a completely different water experience for cooling off on a warm day.
