The park is beautifull. The campgrounds are spacious and well kept. Hiking trails are well marked and very enjoyable. Good camp shop, laundry facilities etc, its all here BUT: We arrived at 12.30pm parked and went to the office to check in. You have to take a ticket and queue. Our ticket was 97 and they were serving number 70. We waited 3hrs to be checked into the park!!! Staff were very unfriendly and obviously couldnt care less how many people were waiting. We would never come back.

Clean areas, challenging trails, hot water at bathrooms, park police at camping areas very safe.

The frio river water actually is very cold

We went camping last year and did some floating down the river. It was an awesome time. Next time we would like to go hiking also.

There are a lot of campsites here near the river, and plenty of spaces for day travelers, too. There's very little privacy, though, so you might want to travel in an RV or splurge for cabin or a shelter so you're not looking into other campsites all the time and them into yours, and have more privacy to yourself.
