Deep canyons, crystal-clear streams, high mesas and carved limestone cliffs are the brush strokes in the geologic painting of this intriguing terrain. Many backcountry paved roads wind through canyons along streams here, offering the traveler a different pace from the freeway rush.

This is a strong favorite in our family. Though it is a bit of a drive, we have camped her twice in the last couple years.
Fall is my personal favorite. The color along the Frio is beautiful as the cypress trees turn red. The weather is usually lovely, temps are perfect.
There are many hiking trails and so much to see and do here. If you time it right, they have evening dances on the pavilion. Putt-putt golf. Kayaking the river, or in summer tubing the river is a big hit. Hike to find the Crystal Cave or climb Old Baldy.
There are tons of sites, and that means it's a popular park with lots of visitors. But, we just love it here and it's one we'll keep returning to time and again.
