FRIO RIVER • CONCAN, TX
The River Life
Vacationing by the Frio River
When you’re looking for the perfect Texas getaway, come and relax by the Frio River. The beautiful vistas, clear crisp water and endless things to do make our river unlike others.
There are no “can ban” or “non-disposable container” restrictions on the Frio, which makes planning easy whether you plan to tube, kayak, swim, fish, or just splash around.
It’s a place that is known for beautiful sweeping landscapes, highlighted by crystal clear waters and numerous springs and hollows to make every day seem filled with potential. The area is prime to explore and enjoy. For years it has been known as a hidden gem and one of the best places to vacation to in all of Texas.
THINGS TO DO
Garner State Park
With nearly three miles of Frio River access, this beautiful gem is Texas’ most visited state park. Swim, rent a stand up paddleboard, kayak, or paddle boat, hike 16 miles of scenic trails, picnic, fish, putt-putt, geocache, visit their sweet shack, or enjoy the summertime nightly jukebox dances.
Frio Bat Cave
Witness 10 to 12 million Mexican Free-Tailed Bats ascend into the evening sky before sunset each night from March into September at the Frio Bat Cave. This is the second largest bat population in the world open to the public!
Visit Elm Creek Stables for pony rides, trail rides, and a petting zoo. Enjoy the gorgeous scenery as you ride across 2 miles of trails with the help of their friendly guides. Lots of fun for both beginners and experienced riders.
See some of the biggest bands in Texas Country at House Pasture, a family-friendly music venue. Recent performers include Kevin Fowler, Pat Green, Spazmatics, and Cory Morrow. Many of the local restaurants and bars also feature live music.
Drive and shoot a real tank, hunt for whitetail deer or exotic game, do a photo safari, cave exploring, skeet-shooting, hand-feed giraffes, 4×4 off-roading, shoot a machine gun or flamethrower, and many other unique activities.
