5/5 Excellent

So much fun!
The owner was very friendly and never hesitated to help us if we needed anything. The river was beautiful. It was close enough to walk down, or you can drive down if you have lots of floats and chairs to bring with you. There were plenty of tables down at the river to sit at. We will definitely d going back!

5/5 Excellent

Staying under one roof with family and friends , an excellent way of enjoying each other company regardless of age. It was a well spent weekend getaway.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay on Frio
This isn’t my first time staying on this property, the location is great super close to the river quick walk or drive down. And having a personal shuttle to float the river makes it easier to coordinate with groups. Definitely recommend.
