Nichol’s Landing is a unique spot on the Upper Guadalupe River. Nichol's Landing is the area where the Upper Guadalupe River can be accessed with the most ease. Unlike most other access areas, Nichol's Landing had off road parking close to the river, making it easy to reach the river without strenuous hiking.This ease of access makes Nichol’s landing a unique and valuable put in or take out point for kayaks and canoes.

The depth and rapids on the Upper Guadalupe River vary from day to day. Most of the time beginners can navigate these waters in canoes, kayaks or tubes.

In addition to being a great point to begin or end a floating journey, Nichol’s landing is a great swimming hole. There is a sandbar that narrows the river into a smaller channel and a rope swing hanging from a cypress tree.

The Upper Guadalupe River is lined with beautiful cypress trees and limestone shelves. These unique views can be enjoyed by visitors as they participate in their various activities.

Fishing is allowed at Nichol’s Landing. This section of the Guadalupe River is home to several types of bass, carp, crappie, gar and catfish. Small lures and a light line are recommended and Texas fishing regulations apply.

Before participating in any activity on this river, it is recommended that visitors check the rate of the rivers flow. The river is safe for any activity when its flow is between 100 and 800 cubic feet per second. Flow rates can be found online using www.wordcc.com or waterdata.usgs.gov.

Whether you are swimming, fishing, floating or paddling you will enjoy your day on the Upper Guadalupe River at Nichol’s Landing.
