The Frio River originates in northern Real County and, fed by springs and streams, tumbles over limestone rock to create waterfalls, rapids and pools on its way to Concan in Uvalde county. Along the banks are boulders, bluffs and grassy spots shaded by pecans, live oaks, sycamores and giant, centuries old, cypress trees. Residents of this Land of 1100 Springs are proud of the natural beauty of their area and encourage visitors to help preserve it. Numerous river camps and lodges from Leakey to Concan - in addition to Garner State Park - offer visitors a variety of accommodations and outdoor activities. Year-round activities include fishing, hunting, bird watching, camping, cycling, and driving the spectacular mountain roads. In the fall, see the pristine nature of the canyon filled with the turning foliage's crimson and orange. Favorite summertime activities are swimming in and floating on the Frio River. Horseback ride anytime in these tranquil surroundings.
