The San Marcos River
One of the most loved family recreation areas, the San Marcos River, bubbles to life from hundreds of springs right in the City's center. Always a refreshing 72 degrees, the river is enjoyed year ‘round.
Rio Vista Park, where the Lions Club Tube Rental shuttle will pick you up, is a relaxing area that includes pavilions, picnic tables, and children's play park. The river at this area has deep pools to swim and float that flow into the three chutes known as Rio Vista Falls. It's great fun to shoot the falls over and over again!
Help keep the San Marcos River beautiful. Mesh trash bags are tied to your tubes for convenience during your time on the water. Trash cans are located in and around the park and shuttle pick up area. Please dispose of your trash and recyclables properly.
