Guadalupe River park a gem for picnics, camping
By CHARLES PARSONS Outdoors writer
With what is undoubtedly the finest state parks systems in the country, Texas offers unlimited opportunities for residents and visitors to camp, fish, boat, hunt and generally enjoy the outdoors.
Even though the immediate area has a number of recreational areas and facilities, there are several state parks which should not be overlooked as the summer winds down.
One favorite is Guadalupe River State Park, which is approximately 40 miles west of New Braunfels on Texas 46.
The park, which opened in June, 1983, has 1,900 acres and includes Us miles of river frontage. With four rapids, this is the Guadalupe at its best — limestone cliffs, bald cypress trees and clear water.
Visitors can enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, canoeing, hiking, picnicking and camping inBriefly
The Guadalupe River, lined by huge cypress trees, is the park’s outstanding natural feature. As previously mentioned, the river winds over four natural rapids and two steep limestone bluffs indicate its awesome erosive power.
Trees to be observed include the sycamore, elm basswood, pecan,
walnut, persimmon, willow and hackberry in the lower elevations. Away from the river, oak and juniper are abundant, including one area of virgin Ashe juniper that provides nesting habitat for the rare goldencheeked warbler.
Animals to be seen include whitetailed deer, coyote, gray fox, skunk, raccoon, armadillo and bobcat, along with many smaller species.
The maintenance, security, staff and facilities are all excellent and the short drive is well worth the effort. Additional information and reservations can be obtained by calling the park superintendent at 438-2656Stamp collecting offers indoor hunting
A series of outdoors-related stamps highlight the 1985 philatelic season.
One of the new issues is a four-block set of 22-cent duck decoys, which, along with other commemorative stamps, are available at the main post office.
Sets available for starting an animal-theme stamp collection include Animals and Creatures of the Sea and the American Wildlife Album.Calaveras stocked with corvinas
Lake Calaveras at the southeast edge of San Antonio was stocked with almost 7,000 fingerling-sized hybrid corvinas during the past two weeks, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
The fish are hybrid crosses between the orangemouth corvina from California's Salton Sea and spotted seatrout which are native to Texas coastal bays
Anglers already are catching the first hybrid corvinas releases in the lake last summer. Those fish are now in excess of two pounds, according to
biologist John Prentice.Dove hunt offered at Las Palomas
The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is offering a public hunt for white-winged doves at two units of its Las Palomas Wildlife Management Area.
Prospective hunters must obtain application forms from TPWD headquarters in Austin, or by calling toll-free 1-800-792-1112. Completed applications must be returned to Austin by 5 p.m. Monday.
Dates for both hunts are Sept. 7-8 A fee of $10 will be charged each applicant selected.
A total of IOO permits will be issued for hunts on the Anacua Unit, located southwest of Harlingen in Cameron County. Hunter success during the hunt there last year was 6.3 birds per hunter, and last year's applicants had a one in six chance of being selected.
The other area is the Ocotillo Unit. which will be hunted for the first time since the site was acquired this year by the department. The unit is
located along the Rio Grande north of Ruidosa in Presidio Count\
the park, as well as less vigorous pursuits like birdwatching and nature study.
The most beautiful part of the park is the day-use picnic area, which has 50 picnic sites and ample parking. For longer visits, 48 sites are available for recreational vehicles
and trailers, 37 sites are available for tent campers and 20 sites are available for walk-in tent camping.
Drinking water and sanitary facilities are provided in the picnic and camping areas and the restrooms at the multi-use and tent areas have showers.
