  • We went on a weekday in October and stayed in the cabins for a night. We were still able to swim in the frio which was beautiful. We hiked as well. The park was not crowded. The shop had all the neces...  read more »
  • The rating is for the complete lack of communication by and within the park and park management. The park itself is lovely, but it is in desperate need of signage,people who know what they are doing, ...  read more »
  • Tried an inner tube floating down the Frio river. Great way to beat the Texas heat. We were lucky it was overcast the days we camped. The breeze at night made it more comfortable. 
  • Loved this state park for the various activities you can do here. We went hiking up the old Mount baldy trail and the crystal cave tail. There is also tubing along 2 miles of the frio river, the waters were clear and shallow. I loved tubing the most. Would recommend anybody to spend a day or two at this state park.
  • The park has a lot to offer. Tubing, swimming, hiking, biking, fishing. Great trails and sights. Tubing can be more like walking if the water is low. The only reason I did not give it five stars is for such a popular park, they don't keep it clean. All that money coming in you could keep it nicer.
  • Our first camping experience, I am so not a camping kinda girl... who knew?!?! Had a great time! Our tent neighbors quickly became friends, our combined kiddos tent hopped and thoroughly enjoyed the dance. We would have loved to extend our 3 day stay had it not been for the hours long wait to do so. You'd think they'd come up with a better solution to the check in process. Even with prepaid reservations we waited 2 hours to check in!
  • Beautiful park! Get in line for day pass between 7and later!! The Frio river was chill. Water, cool!!! Pretty rocky in places, but good flow. Not deep at all. Rent a tube and shuttle to drop off. If no cabin available, drive to Uvalde, 20 min. Away. If you bring cell phone in river tubing, make sure in waterproof case, you will get soaked in some spots!
  • Loved every minute of our time of heaven in Texas! We did three days and two nights on the 20th of July 2016, camping under the beautiful star lit sky, crispy camp fires, and fresh rushing water! Definately gonna do it again every year till I die! Restrooms can use a little more care but what do you expect from all the tourists coming in and out every day.......other than that its really great!
