Very well kept secret of comfort. Probably shouldn't be reviewing it, but it deserves the recognition. Always a great time and park is kept very clean. Nothing better than the good ol Texas hill country and it's rivers. Thankyou to the men and women who protect this beautiful country.

The day we were there, it was very quiet. Great place for letting the kids run around and just enjoy the sunshine and the peaceful view.

Love visiting this park...usually quiet and able to just chill.... beautiful section of the Guadalupe, but wear good shoes if you go near the water as it's very rocky. Staying up top are picnic tables and outdoor restrooms.

This is a very nice, small park on the Guadalupe River. It was erected to honor James Kiehl a local Vet that lost his life at a young age in combat in one of the recent wars. The park is very simple, mostly just a place to swim, fish, potch in the water and picnic. It does not have any... More

My husband and I stopped for about an hour or 2 walked along the beautiful river and the hills around the river. The park is very small but it was just right for us for a short hike and to enjoy the man species of birds all around. The memorial for James Kiehl and all serving military was tasteful and... More

I drove there with two of my granddaughters, as we were getting out of my car, in an empty parking lot, a pick up pulled up right next to us, the man got out and started taking pictures of us. I rushed my two granddaughters back into my car and drove off. Why he parked that close, when the whole... More

A beautiful spot, for reflection, exercise and to reflect on a young life sacrificed to war. Do be careful, however, if you leave the trail...there are water moccasins, etc., in the area

This is a beautiful hill country park on the Guadalupe River dedicated to a local man who lost his life serving the US in Iraq. Great place to take a nice walk, enjoy the water and hopefully reflect a bit about the young man whose name the park shares.

I have taken my kids to this park several times. It is nice to walk the trails, and explore. It has not had more than a couple of other people there when we went. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. Nice and peaceful.
