The Guadalupe River serves the Cuero community as a source of recreation and also a source of history.
Cuero is a part of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Paddling Trail. There, you can enjoy taking your boat, kayak or canoe and paddle down the river to enjoy the great outdoors. As you paddle, look around for the old damn and power plant that used to serve the Cuero area many years ago.
The river is also the source of great stories. The most recent story for the river and Cuero was in the flood of 1998. The Guadalupe River crested in the morning of October 17th, the river crested at over 49.8 feet, which is the highest recording at this part in the river since 1900. The city was covered in the river with many buildings not even visible from the air. Since this flood, the city and county have put in more measures to ensure better flow for the water, but this flood will go down in history as a once in 500 year flood.
