From Livestock to Live Music!

A Look at Cool River Ranch . . . Nestled on 220 acres of prime river front near San Marcos, Cool River Ranch offers unparalleled access to premium recreation and relaxation. While still a working ranch, be sure to check out the cattle and longhorn grazing in the green pastures nearby, Cool River Ranch offers visitors something special: an unrivaled river retreat with shuttle access to and from your location.

Originally settled in the 1800’s as Dupuy Ranch, Cool River Ranch borders the beautiful San Marcos River, fed by the second largest natural cluster of springs in Texas. Always a cool, crisp 72 degrees, the San Marcos River at Cool River Ranch offers visitors a long, winding tubing adventure courtesy of U -Toob River Floats, or you can kick back with a picnic beneath one of the ranch’s sprawling, centuries old shade trees and take in some live music at Cool River’s premiere events venue.

Archaeologists believe the Cool River region may be one of the oldest continually inhabited sites in North America after unearthing Paleo Indian artifacts in the area that date back as far as 12,000 years. Now that’s a history that speaks for itself. So why not discover what makes Cool River Ranch one of our nation’s most hospitable regions by planning your visit today. 

We offer unparalleled service to our customers, whether you are going for a day tubing adventure or if you're joining us for a great event or concert. Our facility was built to make your visit with us enjoyable and one that you will remember. We welcome the College crowd with specials and events thru out the season!
