You’ll Want To Spend The Entire Day At The Gorgeous Stretch Of River In Texas’ Garner State Park

The winding, 200-mile Frio River has been a natural wonder for generations of visitors in the central and southern midsection of Texas. As its name suggests, the body of water references feelings of refreshment – particularly on a hot summer day. In Spanish, the word “frio” means “cold.”

One of the Frio River’s most popular points of interest is within the Garner State Park in Concan, about 75 miles west of San Antonio.

A total of 2.9 miles of the river wind through the 1,774-acre park, and visitors have long used the stretch of waterway to float on the cool waters in inner tubes or enjoy paddle boating.
