Where is it?

KL on the River is located just outside New Braunfels City Limits alongside the banks of the Guadalupe River. The address is 5455 River Rd., New Braunfels, Texas, United States 78132.


The Story Behind the Name

“The owner's Great-Great Grandfather began acquiring land in the 1870's which was to become KL Ranch. During his lifetime he acquired over 1700 acres of land (currently the campground section consists of approximately 10 acres of river front property and the ranch section about 1367 acres). During this time, a man named Louis Klappenbach leased the property on which to graze his cattle. He used his initials "KL" for his cattle brand. After time, he sold all of his cattle to Mr. Bretzke along with the cattle brand. Therefore, the property came to be known as the Bretzke Ranch and later KL Ranch.”
