Overall a nice park. It is close to many attractions in the area and access in and out was a breeze. There are a few pull-through spots and back-in spots around the perimeter. Spots are moderately spaced, level and roads were dirt and rock but level and smooth. Wildlife was abundant as we saw deer, armadillo, jack rabbits and several birds. Water, electricity and sewer hookups all good. Cable was available. There is a kids play area and a few cabins to rent. Overall this is a nice place with a small store at the entrance. Verizon was weak, AT&T strong and they had great internet access. Pet friendly except for the burrs in the fields. We would come here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Bec's Store and RV Park is in a lovely area in the scenic hill country about 6 miles north of Concan, TX. Bec's is only a couple miles from Garner State Park and access to the Frio River. The campground is well shaded by beautiful oak and pecan trees and the sites are very large, well groomed and level. The managers were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here 1 night, and it exceeded our expectations. Our rate includes a Good Sam Discount. The “General Store” is a stock of basic goods for campers as you will find in many camps or resorts in the Frio River area. The showers were very clean and had a mat and other features seldom found even in high $$ resorts. Well Done! Wi-Fi was excellent, and the owners/managers were nice and friendly. There was no cell phone service for our Verizon contract. The “town” of Concan must be a gas station ($3.20/gal) at the junction of 83/127. The town of Leakey is MUCH bigger. I would like to camp here again in high season and float the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean! Clean! Clean! This is not your average campground. From the moment we arrived we were blown away. The cabin we stayed in was extremely clean. The campsites were well spaced out. The camp store was a huge bonus. The campground host went above and beyond to make our family vacation a memorable one. We highly recommend Becs RV and have already booked our return trip for March 2011. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.
We love this park. Great views, quiet, clean, friendly owner, and just minutes from Garner State Park and the Frio River. We stayed during the off season for $27 / night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners here are very gracious hosts. It's a wonderful atmosphere. They are motorcycle friendly and the area is wonderful for riding with many winding roads. The park is in great shape, laid out nicely with a community firepit and many future plans that I believe will come true for these hard working, fun loving Texans. Thank you for a wonderful stay and may God bless you with your goals. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The management was extremely friendly. Very nice park. Monthly rate is cheapest anywhere. We stayed 4 months. We had no problems. Wi-Fi is free and very good. Cell phone service here is good. We would highly recommend this park. We will come back and stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice park. Owners have some wonderful ideas and are fantastic people to stay with. Very accommodating and such a relaxing and scenic area. Would definitely stay again if in area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the Passport America rate of $13.50. There were only a few campers during our stay. We were in site #14, pull-through, long and level with ample room. This site is next to the trash dumpster (trash truck came by at 7:00 a.m.), but there was no odor. The park is located next to the highway, but I did not hear any road noise during the night. The owner, is helpful and friendly. No pool, no river, no clubhouse but there is a clean country feeling about this park. No Verizon wireless service here. Wi-Fi and cable are included in rate. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here several times before and it is great - not on the water, but the hospitality of the management is great - good size sites - full hook-ups... Frio is not too far off and most of the outfitters have reasonably priced shuttles. One of the best selections of rv supplies in the store as well which makes it nice if you need anything. Dry creek bed in the back to fossil hunt, and tons of wildlife for the kids. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new family-run park, located next to Garner State Park. During our 2 week stay we enjoyed hiking, fossil hunting and bird & deer watching. This is a great place to winter over. We plan to return again next winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pro's- May be the most beautiful park in Texas with the deepest traditions. Cons- they allow multiple families in one campsite making it crowded and noisy in some instances. Overall.... Has to be one of the best parts in Texas it's not the best. If you're looking for real camping and not a "RV park"with Wi-Fi, cable, etc. Great hikes, and beautiful places to go to the river and enjoy all day. Very kid friendly. Downside is the park doesn't appear to stick to its site policies and there may be 15 people in one site making (what would be) nice semi-secluded campsites loud, noisy, and over-run bathrooms. One of our favorite spots is rock beach down near the dam, but there's great places to go all over this park. Don't miss the nightly dance! You won't find this anywhere else and that's like people come from campgrounds all around to go to. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. For being packed with people the restrooms were very clean. This is a great park for families. It was impressive to walk around and see "Garner Family since XXX." I think the oldest we saw was 1959. Old Baldy is a fun climb. The dances are fun but as a dad with 2 daughters ... I didn't like it. We are already booked for Garner for Spring Break 2015. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We came through the area on Easter Sunday as families were leaving the park. There were other campers but rain in the afternoon ran many of the day visitors away. Skies cleared and we found the campground to be very nice. The huge old oak trees were beautiful and the river peaceful. We are an older couple but all the green space and water activities on the river are certainly a draw to those with children. The office staff was super nice and helped us locate a level site since we don't have levelers. We stayed in site 50. Sites are far enough apart for privacy and roads are paved with good access. We liked the park and the nature. We did not use the shower house. Price included Texas park entry fee since we do not have a Texas park pass. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Arriving at Garner State Park is like arriving at a deli and a border crossing at the same time. After being told by a sign to take a number, you then stand in front of a glass door while reading that only one person in your party is allowed to approach the clerk. When your number is called, you can then approach and speak to the clerk. I suppose such an approach facilitates the park handling a large number of people coming to stay at this most popular of Texas state parks. There are six different camping areas in the park, some equipped with water and electric, all (apparently) with at least water, and apparently a few with sewer as well. Sites were well maintained and clean. The daily fee does not include the daily per-person fee because we had the Texas pass (highly recommended, pays for itself quickly). We stayed in the Live Oak area with water and electric hookups. All sites are paved and tenting sites have a large flat area of dirt that looked good for tents and stakes. The older area of the park is located at the downstream end of the park. Don't trust your GPS to lead you to the correct entrance as there have been at least three that we could see. All sites were back-in and looked good for shade during part of the day. Leakey is 8 miles north of the park for some limited supplies. We were at Garner for three nights mid-week and most sites were open at that time. By summer time, we expect the park to be full much of the time as it's only 1.5 hours from San Antonio and a similar distance from Austin. This park is in the thick of the Hill Country, so over-air TV reception was very poor and our Verizon card didn't work at all. W-Fi at the entry station was slow and weak. The Tracfone, on the other hand, worked well. People driving to the park would do well to avoid the extremely hilly and tight Texas Route 337 and arrive on U.S. Route 83 from the north or south. We'd stay again if we were in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate includes park pass purchase discount. Great time of year to visit. Can't imagine what it would be like with when its full, as I'm sure it is during peak season. Quite nice, well kept up sites by and large. Looked like a good selection would accommodate big rigs. Shade or open possibilities. No WiFi in park (except at HQ and that was slooow, no Verizon service). Hiking was good for a state park, even had a couple of interpretive hikes on the weekend. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here in the off season (January) and had the park practically to ourselves. We chose the Live Oak loop, spot 352. This spot is directly across from the bathrooms and showers with a nice path to walk down to the Rio Frio river (bring chairs and skip rocks on the water, great area). This park was opened in 1941 and has aged pretty well. The roads are a bit bumpy and some of the slots have some older pavement but the buildings all seem pretty well maintained. The showers got nice and hot -- and it was in the 30Fs. The check-in process was a bit "quirky" and slow with an anterior waiting area. Leakey is about 10 miles away and has a great little mercantile with a good selection of meats and camping supplies. The scenery was great and we can't wait to camp here again. Highly recommend this state park. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is for a spring trip before school is out. We camped here from Sunday to Friday. Weekends and summer it is too crowded for us. Arrive on Sunday after 1:00 and had the pick of where we wanted to stay. Stayed in the Oakmont section under the big oak trees. Us and one other camper till Wednesday. Started filling up Thursday. It was quiet and beautiful along the river. Water pretty cool but nice by late evening. Verizon customers have no cell service anywhere around here. Free WI-Fi at Visitor center. Will definitely stay here again at this time of year. Rate does reflect a Texas state park passport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
In the off season it is quiet, a little breezy and cold but we enjoyed the hikes and solitude. Only had one family at a shelter a short distance from us that had there music too loud. If you can be at Garner in the off season, give it a try, much more peaceful and quiet. The strange thing was we saw no wildlife until we were driving towards the entrance. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park! Beautiful setting! Can be crowded and check-in can be a very long wait when crowded. If you camp during the off season the crowds aren't as bad. Uvalde is only about 30 minutes away with grocery shopping, restaurants, shopping, drugstores. Would highly recommend this camp ground, and I plan on going back during the off season again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful, huge park alongside river with big tress (cypress). Scenic hills all around. Great, shaded, level sites. Great time of year to be there, did not need reservation, but VERY busy "anytime school is out" we were told. Part of park was closed, so many sites taken, but still quiet and good spacing between sites. Only here one night but would stay longer next time. Several interesting trails. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Despite the reserve-on-line system which we used, make sure you are aware that check in (especially during peak season) takes a very, very long time. We waited, along with a parking lot full of other campers, for over two hours to check in for a weekend. The park employees were very nice, but the wait meant most of us were hooking up in the dark, even after having arrived hours before sunset. The campground was clean, the sites were level, and there were nice hikes and swimming areas. We found the Old Garner area to be surprisingly quiet. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for Spring Break our most recent time. The nightly dances are what appeals to my son! I never had a problem hooking up to the Internet. Bathrooms are supposedly being redone. This is a lovely park! Can't wait to go back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We love Garner. Nice sites, quiet in the winter. They now have Wi-Fi. Campfires depend on the current rainfall. We love spending New Year's there. Downside: the check-in process is slow and clunky. But it's worth it for a quiet, safe getaway in a beautiful spot. Hiking is good, but can be steep, so go prepared. We take our bikes and there are plenty of roads to pedal around the park. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
My husband and I spent 3 nights at this park in a tent. It was our first time there, and we were very impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the entire park. We stayed in the Pecan Grove area, which is in Old Garner. Pecan Grove has only water, no electricity, so most campers were in tents. During this time of the year, we almost had the park to ourselves and it was wonderful. However, I have heard that summer will bring a more "lively" experience, with lots of people and activity. The Frio River is gorgeous and cold, and we were treated to beautiful fall color in the huge Cypress trees along the river. We took a day trip to nearby Lost Maples State Natural Area, where there were lots of people and long trails with exceptional fall color. If you have the chance to stay in Old Garner, it is the prettiest area. There are large trees, and the spaces seem further apart. Also, it is closer to the camp store and other amenities. The structures built by the CCC, when the park was developed, are really neat and it was enjoyable just walking around looking at everything. Park employees were very friendly and helpful. We took our two dogs (must be on a leash at all times) and the park is dog friendly. Garner State Park was great, and we are looking forward to returning with our entire family next time! We camped here in a Tent.

This is a very nice park with lots of space at each site. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. There is Wi-Fi available down by the river at where the laundromat is located. There are lots of birds to watch and deer, both local and exotic. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Never get tired of coming back. Old, established park but nice. The river has been enjoyable and makes for a great summer get away. Stayed for a month. You will enjoy the location, relaxation and friendliness. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a great state park. We enjoyed our stay and the staff was extremely friendly. The park is extremely well kept and river was great for families with small children. The kids had a great time swinging from the ropes. Most campsites are very well shaded. However, you must book with plenty of time because the sites fill up quickly. We are definitely looking forward in returning to this wonderful park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As always -- GREAT!! Our 3rd year here. Some bathrooms are being redone or have been remodeled -- check when you arrive to see about closures. Lots of day visitors as usual. Be sure and bring everything in you need to eat -- nearest Walmart or grocery store is 45 minutes away. Ice available in the park store. Watch the alcohol consumption -- even in campsite. Rangers have been recently coming over to 'sniff' your drink, even in a red cup. Just watch it. We love the place! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Probably the best State Park camping facilities in Texas. New restrooms that are kept very clean, shady spots near the river, and good support facilities within the campground are some of the highlights. Just realize that this State Park is far removed from any town with grocery stores, etc. when you arrive, as driving into town to pick up a forgotten item will be a road-trip. Also, no cell coverage in this area. Overall, we loved our stay and playing in the Frio River and hiking the trails was so much fun!! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the most beautiful State Park in Texas. There is plenty of hiking and the river, for swimming. We camped in Site #26 in Old Garner. It is the closest site to the river that we found. The Park is very large, full of deer and other wildlife. We weren't there long enough. The water is crystal clear and perfect for swimming, although a little on the cool side in October. We will be going back! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Garner SP is the most visited park in Texas. Families have been having reunions here for 30-40-50 years or more. Books up WELL in advance of summer! Garner is a place like no other. Family-friendly, yet those nightly dances and 'hot summer nights' -- let's just say plenty of kids get their first kiss at Garner! Or their first dance, or both! Rope swings, tubing on the river, paddleboat/kayak rentals, hiking & biking -- it's all here at Garner! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Price after purchasing a Texas Park Pass. Come with groceries as park is pretty isolated and there is no cell phone service. Large, level, gravel sites. We would recommend this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is mostly cabins here but they have 5 sites that accommodate up to 28 foot and 4 newer sites for 40 footers.The 4 larger sites are separated by trees and the other sites are side by side but also have trees. Its nothing fancy but the river is beautiful and just down the hill from the sites. They have a store for most anything you may have forgotten, plus a gameroom. They also rent inner-tubes and have nightly hayrides in the summer months. Family owned and family oriented. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rates reflect Good Sam discount and non-summer time period. About half the riverfront sites have utilities located for nose-in motor homes, but can be used by backed-in travel trailers if you don't mind snaking your lines under the trailer. Sewer caps are on both sides; however. Couldn't ask for a better view and the river was very nice and clean, but it got noisy on the weekend from the Garner State Park crowd that is just across from the RV park. Sites not quite level side to side, but ours was remedied by our 2 inch blocks. Fore and aft was fine. Very nice small store on site and nice small restaurants in Concan and Leakey. Staff was friendly, but did charge an extra $2 for WiFi - wish they would add it in beforehand so it wouldn't seem like an "extra" charge. Water pressure and electric service were quite adequate. Verizon didn't work very well, but AT&T was fine. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our pick for best park in Concan. This park has great river access for everyone in the park as it's not too far from any campsite. The wi-fi was a bit slow at peak times and the sites do require leveling. You may want to check and make sure the site you pick or are assigned does not flood. Concan got 5 inches of rain while we were here and our site was high and dry but the sites across the street were about 8-10 inches underwater and the occupants had to move. The bathrooms and laundry are very clean at all times and the park patrol is consistent and the rules are enforced for everyone. We will return again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is with Good SAMs discount. Park located across Rio Frio River with easy access to river for tubing. We were one of only two motorhomes in park, rest variety of campers, 5th wheelers, etc. Sites in need of repair and mostly were not level. Did not use baths, showers, Wi-Fi or cable. No play area and construction buildings very visible from sites. Very friendly staff, security guard at gate and owner ready to help if necessary. A lot of road construction on many of the roads in the area...we would not return. But if you want tubing in the river stop here. Very pricy $$$$$. Sites not maintained... We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflect Passport America discount. Very nice park located right on the Rio Frio river. Very friendly and helpful office staff. Some of the sites in the park are not very level, but ours was perfect. Laundry is clean and in good order. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is on the quiet side of the Frio river across from Garner State Park. The sites are mostly level and the grounds are well maintained. We found the staff to be friendly and very helpful. The camp store is well stocked and reasonably priced for a camp store. The river is very wide and slow moving in this area, great for just laying in the tube. There are only two river access points one metal stairs the other a improved road/trail. It would be nice if there were one more access point up closer to the front of the park. The per night fee seemed a bit high given the amenities but not way out of line with others in the area. Verizon cell service is not available but AT&T is available. The park has a good Wi-Fi system but charges $2 per day for service. In my opinion this is the nicest privately owned park on the Frio. We stayed almost a week and enjoyed our stay, we will most assuredly be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stay each year over Memorial Day and we love this park. The sites do require leveling but that's the only negative I can find. We always stay in #75 which is not riverfront but has a huge shade tree and lots of yard space behind your rig that is also shaded. The restrooms are always clean and tidy (even over the holiday) and the staff is always friendly. We will stay here again and again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very good campground to stay at (off season). If you don't like crowds, stay away in summertime. When we camped, it was nice and quiet, plenty of space. Walking distance to the river. Easy back-ins and lots of pull throughs. Only remark: they should take a little bit more care at the park with the grass and roads. Staff is very friendly. We certainly will come back, stayed here with PPA. You pay $2 a day for Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park workers and guests are extremely friendly and everyone is having a good time. The view of the Frio River and Old Baldy Mountain are just fantastic. Not all sites are river viewable, however, there are several ways to get down to the river. The closest good grocery store is about a 25 minute drive. This park is very quiet and great for viewing wildlife. Restrooms and laundry rooms are kept very clean and have easy access from anywhere in the park. The site pads are sand and small gravel which can make for a mess in your car or motorhome (when wet). We spent over a month in a 40' motorhome and would gladly come back for a longer "Winter Texan" stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is passport America. WI-FI is $2 per day extra. This is an older park with mostly seasonals. This park has an odd layout which results a hodge podge look and feel. Interior roads are quite narrow but because of the layout traffic is two way! Things could get hairy when two rigs meet going in opposite directions. Parking areas were relatively level but it's a thin layer of gravel over dirt. It rained so the whole pad became a soupy mess. WI-FI is very good as are the restrooms and laundry. For those who choose to stay in this park should be advised that the road fords a creek if you come from the south. It runs all year. We will stay elsewhere if we visit this area again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small but decent convenience store on-site, hosts very accommodating. Our site not quite level, but noticed that management is leveling the pads and installing patios which will be nice. Most river-side sites were set up for nose-in motorhomes, but will work for back-in trailers if you don't mind snaking your hookups under your trailer to connect on the opposite side. Sewer hookups on both sides; however. Quiet and restful, lots of shady sites, and friendly folks. We are repeat visitors and will certainly come back again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Based on a weekly rate. Very clean park. A majority of the sites are pull-thru, tho not the ones near the river. You have river access after scaling 2 flights of stairs, located between site 9 & 10. Right across the river from Garner SP. Garner can get a little noisy on weekends, so this is a nice alternative. Bathrooms/showers a little old but well maintained. Cable worked well, tho it had only about 10 channels. Wi-Fi costs $2/per day per device. What this means if you have 2 I-phones and a laptop it will cost you $6/day, a little cheesy IMHO but the system itself was fairly fast and dependable. One other thing: If you are coming to this park from Uvalde, don't try and use County Rd 150 from the south, it crosses the river but is often covered by water. Go a little further north to FM1050, then pass up Garner SP entrance and turn right just after the bridge. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a gem! We've stayed across the river at Garner State Park before, but it was full so we tried this private CG. Quite a few snowbirds here, and they seem to be very social. Beautiful full hookup sites right on the Frio River. Small store onsite but no other amenities; golf course nearby; Wi-Fi very good but they charge $3 for each 24-hr connection to Tengo. Bathrooms and showers very clean, and the whole place is so quiet! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We planned a great week on the Frio with 18 other friends. Some camped in cabins and some at other RV parks. Unfortunately, when we wanted to get together at this campground or have others just pick us up for activities, Parkview insisted we pay $5.00 per car coming in and $3 per person. One friend paid $11 (overcharged) to come visit us for 30 minutes, others paid the $11 per couple to visit a couple of hours at the motorhome. We paid $18 for 6 people to come eat with us, but others were so disgusted by this time they didn't come. The staff were abrupt, rude, and very uncaring about our dilemma. Add in that the cable only gave us 5 channels, the internet was down for 2 days plus the $41 per day and this was a very expensive place to stay. We won't stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After completing our fourth trip to this park in three years, I am pleased to say that it is still the best RV park in Concan. As mentioned by another reviewer they do charge for additional guest; but this policy keeps the riff-raff (for lack of a better word) out of the park and helps maintain the security of the park, which is filled with families and children (not party goers). I do defend and am happy with this policy and it is part of the reason that we enjoy this park. On our last trip we had 36 people between RV parks and cabins in our group and we just meet down on the river and dined at the cabins where there was no surcharge. That being said, the sites do require some leveling but the access to the river, proximity to Garner State Park, the cleanliness of the facilities and the parkstore make up for a level pad. We have our reservations already booked to return next year. I highly recommend this park for anyone wanting a peaceful, family oriented park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great winter-time park. Rates w/ Passport America are the best in town. Lots of activities at the clubhouse. Quiet park - very secluded area. Matrix Internet for fee available - limited cable channels but sufficient. I would recommend access from the back way rather than off hwy 83 - river could be up as it was when we came in and crossing it was a bit precarious. Enter via FM1050 instead. Explore and relax in the Hill Country. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good location close to the Rio Frio like so many Rv Parks in this area. Park is very basic with gravel roads and sites. This made it very hard for our small dogs to walk.The gravel got the inside of our Motorhome pretty dirty, too. We stayed here for one night since they were fully booked for 4th of July. The park is gated, but we had the impression that this has nothing to do with security (this park is in the middle of nowhere) but more with money. We had moved to the park next door and tried to see friends who stayed there. My husband and I could not get to them (thanks to a controlled gate) without paying $ 11 visitors fee. We would not stay here by choice again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is an awesome park. We stayed in a riverside space, and the view was great. There was plenty of shade, and the spaces have more than enough room. They have very good water pressure, and we had excellant cell phone coverage (ATT). We will be back for sure. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This was the first time to stay at this park. it was very clean and the staff was polite. You can not see the river from most of the sites, but water access is just a short walk. The park is small and secure. I have two children (9&11) and I had no problem letting them ride around and play in the park. The bath rooms were exceptional. They were always clean and they have good size shower rooms! We had reservation for Graner State Park for Labor Day weekend, but have canceled them to stay here again. Rates seem to vary (based on some of the posts on this site), I assume it is seasonal. Labor Day Weekend is $39.00. Great Park. I suggested a couple of things to them. They do not have a dog run. Dogs are welcomed but there is no place to let them off the leash. A small play ground would be nice for the kids. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
During our adventurous winter travels we needed a place to mellow out for a while, and tried this place because of the other good reviews. It turned out to be the perfect choice. They accepted Passport America, hence the great $16 rate. Wifi is important to us, and although it costs extra here ($18 per week) it was the best wifi we’ve had at a campground in a long time. Even at our remote, idyllic site (21), we had a full signal, and even with some trees around the site our Dish satellite came in. Although unpaved, our site was fairly level with a picnic table and fire ring, atop a small cliff overlooking the Frio River, which is very shallow and wide here due to an impoundment. It’s the quietest campground we’ve been to (though I’m sure summer is a different story) and one of the most tranquil. Although the campground advertises being adjacent to the State Park, it is actually 2.5 miles to the long entrance road, unless you can swim across the river. The campground has a large store that is nicely stocked with RV supplies and also some groceries. There is propane for sale. The staff is friendly and they have a large function room. Although it was wonderful here, we did have substantial discomfort at times from the dreaded Juniper pollen that plagues this and other portions of the southwest in December and January. This is the closest I’ve come to giving a campground a 10, especially due to the cost for what we got here, but due to the remoteness, unpaved sites, no cell phone coverage (Verizon) and the Juniper pollen, it drops down slightly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV camp is everything you could possibly want. They have large sites, with full hook-ups. My phone service was excellent here.(ATT) They have a very large game/meeting room, with a full kitchen. There are potlucks, at least once a week, and the owner also gives special meals. He had a fish fry for the park right before we left. He also gave a very nice Christmas Party for the Park. They also have craft classes on Tuesdays, and I actually learned a couple of new things. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Also the staff working out in the park were helpful and always there if you needed them. The bathrooms and showers are spotless. All utilities worked great. The only drawback was the internet. It is an extra $32.00 a month, but worth every penny. We stayed there for 2 months, December, and January, and already have reservations for next year. You can't go wrong with this beautiful park, right on the Rio Frio river. Garner State Park is right across the river, and just a couple of miles to the entrance. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here with Passport-America rate. This is a very nice campground with good access to the clear waters of the Frio River. There is a small store and propane is available at the office. There is a large room for get-togethers. Campers are a friendly bunch and everyone chipped in for a brunch on Christmas. They have game nights, crafts, golf (nearby), and other activities. The 10 cable stations had good reception. My only two complaints was (1) no Verizon phone service but you can buy a Go-Phone (ATT) that supposedly works here. This is a bit of a major complaint because we do not like being without phone service in case of emergencies. However, this is not the fault of the park...and a pay phone is available at the office. They have Wi-Fi but it's through an outside company that you have to sign up with. We would definitely come back here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This camp rocks. Quiet. Friendly owners/employees and campers. As a cyclist, I also ride the area and the locals are bike friendly for sure. No worries riding on a 2 lane road with lots of climbing, deer, and scenery. Only issue during this time of year is the leaves from the cypress trees stick to your shoes and once inside your MH, are like needles. Just unpleasant. But wearing indoor/outdoor shoes/slippers takes care of that issue. Garner State Park is really nice. Lots of good hiking. The Frio is beautiful and cold. Recommend this stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 2 months so our rate reflects a monthly one. The two things that keeps this from being a 10 RV park is location, 10 miles to closest town and 30 miles to go shopping. The second thing is the surface of the site has something similar to cinders, and it is bad to track into RV. Everything else at this park is top notch. This would be a great summer park for families. If you like to walk or ride bikes this is a good place, or if you just want to sit back and relax you can do that. It is a very quiet place. There is plenty of room for big rigs. There is a small store on site that has the very basics. The owner and staff are very helpful. The owner came to our site and personally welcomed us to the park. The cleanliness of the bath and laundry were the best I have seen at any park. (877) 374-6748 We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here twice. We returned most recently while running from Hurricane Ike. The staff welcomed our family back and helped us find a generator to take back home (a rare find at the time). We stayed in site #44 this time. Most sites are very nice with full hookups and some shade. The main attraction is the Frio River which is easily accessed within the campground. The security patrols maintain the family atmosphere, taking care to remove any disruptive, rowdy folks. The store has provisions for those items you forgot and a shuttle service is provided for a float down the Frio. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I had to evacuate from an RV park in the Corpus Christi area to avoid Hurricane Ike. What a stroke of luck finding this nice little RV Park in the Texas hills. The owner told me he was filling up with like minded RV owners that needed to seek higher ground. He decided to begin his winter rates, $27, a few days early so the financial impact of an unplanned trip would not burden the RV’ers forced to leave their homes because of Ike. This park is right on a clear water rock bottom river which is perfect for swimming and floating. The gravel pads were mostly level and each site had its own picnic table and fire pit. The cable TV was good. The wifi was not free, $15 for 7 days, but the signal was very strong. I would rather pay for a strong wifi signal than have a free weak wifi signal. Nice clean 24hr Laundromat. Very family friendly and helpful staff. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
One of our favorite places to stay in south Texas. Great hiking just across the river at Garner State Park and also about 15 or so miles away at Lost Maples State Park. We think this is a great place to just "veg". They offer a PA discount in the winter months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Still one of the best in the Hill Country. Easy to get in any of the sites. The check-in crew is very helpful and pleasant. Good access to the Frio River for fishing, tubing, kayaking or even wading. This is a good place to get away from it all. As an added bonus it honors Passport America and you can't beat those rates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is in need of road repair but the owner is working on upgrades as he can. The wifi you have to pay for which I felt was pricey at 21.00 week when most places are free. People were very friendly and we did enjoy our stay. Very Quiet as it is back off the main hwy a couple miles. In summer I understand the place is VERY busy with lots of families. We stayed in a motorhome with trailer, 65', the owner was very accommodating to park the trailer where we had access to it. Sites are gravel. Fire pits at each site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We've been coming back year after year. The park is well-maintained, quiet, and restful. The staff is friendly and ready to help you and/or assist in directing you to area attractions. They have a nice selection of convenience items in the on-site store. The sites are not quite level, hence the "9" rating, but it doesn't take much to take care of that. Nice shade and right on the beautiful Frio River. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We only spent three nights here although we would have liked to stay much longer. It is a very nice park with access to the beautiful Frio River. The owner and employees were friendly and very helpful. We used Passport America to get 50% off the normal rate. The ability to make on-line reservations is an added bonus. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was my fifth time at this park. It is really nice, with large spaces, lots of trees, a beautiful view of the Frio, and nice Hill Country views in the other directions. Our back window overlooked the river, and we saw lots of wildlife while we were there. The staff is very friendly, the store is well stocked, and the showers are clean. This is one of our favorite spots in the Hill Country, and we will be back often. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very friendly staff and quick to respond Easy walking in the park. Let me pick my spot to camp. Good access to Frio River. Sites are gravel, roads paved. WiFi worked fine in our isolated area. Store has rv supplies and food. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had 3 sites for 2 nights. The park is large, clean and child friendly. They even have fire rings at each site for campfires, something that is becoming a rarity. I would have given this park a 10 had it not been for the lack of a pool, hot tub or free wifi. Garner State Park is just across the river and since they charge a day use fee on top of the camp site fee, Parkview may offer much more for less money. We will return to this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a good time here - had 2 sites right on the bluff. Management was friendly and unobstructive. Kids loved the river, and lots of pretty scenery to drive around and look at. Great stay! Clean, well cared for park. Hard to get reservations, but worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for 3 nights the first part of May (were there over Mother's Day). Can't say enough about this park - it was heaven! We drove down from Lost Maples State Park to check things out both here and at Garner State Park (already had reservations here). We were camping with another couple in 2 rigs (our 5er and their pull camper). Got kudos on the selection of this campground. Everyone kept saying they were so glad we didn't stay at Garner State Park! Best sites in the park are numbers 21-23. Our friends had 21 which was on the river bluff and next to the river access, although we had 22 and I thought it was the best site in the park. The views were to die for - huge cypress trees and the river was shades of jade green. I took lots of pictures and walking along the river was fantastic. We spent most of our time relaxing outside & enjoying the view (besides a side trip one day to Uvalde and Bracketville to John Wayne's Alamo Village). The laundry room was immaculate and so was the park. Everything was spotless. Park employees were great. The park was nice & quiet; nothing at all like Garner State Park. Wished we could have stayed for 2 weeks, but had to leave as this was the mid-point of a 2 week tour around Texas. We'd definitely go back again - this one's a keeper! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Very well run campground. The people there are very helpful and the atmosphere is very relaxed. It is on the bluff above the Rio Frio and Garner State Park. Easy access to the river for paddle boating, wading, swimming, fishing or tubing. Beautiful hill country with plenty in the area to see. Nearest sizeable town is 30 miles (Uvalde) and the other towns within 15 miles or so are under 2,000 population. This is the place to get away for a while. Spent a week here, but if I had the time, I would have stayed longer. Good place for winter Texans. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The actual address for this campground is Concan, Texas. It is a Passport campground and is listed in their directory under Concan. The mailing address is the P. O. in Rio Frio. Don't know why. They have monthly rates that include electricity. This campground is great. There is a well-stocked store for groceries and rv supplies, a very large rec room with big screen TV. The campground overlooks the Frio River and Garner State Park. The river is beautiful and there is access to it from the campground. It is miles away from any large city or population area which makes it quiet and relaxing. They are installing WIFI, but it is new and there are occassional problems. We stayed there a month and considered staying longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 3 nights during Thanksgiving. Perfect fall weather. Sites level with plenty of room. Staff very friendly. Their mailing address is Concan and this park is just across the river from the Garner State Park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great small park atmosphere. We toured all the area parks and this is by far the best. With the best river access. Only reason we did not give a 10 is that they do not have a laundry room. But there is 2 within 5 miles. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not really that high for this area. Very pretty park and is fairly tight, however, the sites are full hookup, level and free Wi-Fi. Short walk down to the Frio River and they have some beautiful riverfront area. If you have friends that need a cabin, they have some of the best looking ones in the canyon. The back ins are probably wider than the pull throughs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very close to the Frio River; you can walk down to it. Has ice, firewood, and tube rental on site. Has free wi-fi. Very nice management. Cabins are super nice; we had friends in one of them. It is a dirt campground, not paved, that's the only thing I didn't like, hence my 9 rating. Expect to get dirty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is very small, only 28 sites. Most are back in, fairly level but none paved. The few pull throughs (3 or 4) that are available are that in name only. Because of it size this is not friendly to big motorhomes and requires a lot 3 and 4 point turns to manage your way back out. If you are pulling another vehicle, forget about it. The owner is usually on site and is very friendly and helpful. It is quiet, but a long walk down to the river. We found the park "ok" but overpriced for what was offered. We would not likely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been here for 3 nights and will be here another 4 nights. If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th night free. If you are looking for an on-site gift shop, preplanned entertainment, crowds, noise or a nearby mall, this is NOT your destination. If you like unobstructed views of a night sky so full of stars you can almost touch them, this is your spot. If you want so much quiet you can hear your own heartbeat from the other side of the park, its here. Bring your camera because you will fill up the memory with the most amazing images from here and nearby venues. The owners are top notch and we will absolutely be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
There are no bathhouse/restrooms. Small park with shade. Sites are a little close together and a couple of them are hard to get to with a long trailer close to the front. Very nice place to stay. Next to the river. Owners/manager friendly. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
With the exception of the 4 pull through sites the sites are extremely close together. My awning rubbed my neighbors unit. The owners don't seem to be people oriented. Restrooms were horrible complete with overflowing toilets. The best part of the park is the river and river access. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We love Seven Bluffs. We have been camping here for years! The river access is easy and the area is safe for children to run and play. The management is fantastic and the staff is always willing to assist campers in anyway. Some of the sites are tight to get into, but there is plenty of room to run and play. Moreover, most of our time is spent at the river's edge! I highly recommend this campground! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a wonderful, well kept up destination RV Park. We come here for the excellent spring birding and are the only campers here now. The Frio River is adjacent to the property and summer is their main season. They also have several cabins for non campers. We have stayed here before and will hopefully come again We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great RV site and friendly owners. We have been staying here for many years. Peaceful, river access and nice facilities, book early for the summer months because they fill up fast. Would definitely stay here again and again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice facility nestled in a pecan orchard with deer and various wildlife. Very clean and family friendly. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. Summer reservations are difficult to make, especially for return guests, but if you get in, it is worth it. One of our favorite places for over 5 years. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

A very peaceful park nestled in pecan orchard. Many birds and deer. Great owners. We
stayed a week in early spring and recommend reservations during summer months.Located on the Frio River, but requires a hike of about 300 yards to get to
river's edge.We will return when in the area.No frills here, just peace and quiet. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
