With hotter temperatures coming, the aptly named Frio River attracts tubers, including these local students toting inner tubes at Garner State Park near Concan. The popular park, which reaches capacity daily between Memorial Day and Labor Day, is one of several put-in sites along the clear, spring-fed waterway. Andy’s on River Road, Josh’s Frio River Outfitters, Happy Hollow Store, and other outfitters rent tubes and offer shuttles to and from additional access points. Or stay on the water at Neal’s Lodges, Frio Country Resort, or Seven Bluff Cabins. No matter where you decide to drop in, the Frio promises ice-cold waters and a fun way to laze away the summer.
