The San Marcos River bursts forth from the Edwards Aquifer through 200 spring openings at the bottom of Spring Lake in the heart of San Marcos, Texas. The river provides a refreshing playground for snorkeling, and scuba diving in the crystal clear water. Tubing, canoeing, and kayaking are also great water recreation activities, and there are several beautiful campgrounds downstream of San Marcos.
