Property at a Glance: Crider’s on the Frio

Three generations of family members have owned and operated Crider’s on the Frio, a homey property in southern Texas. The family’s cabins are nestled along the banks of the Frio River, and each unit can comfortably house large groups. Every cabin is different; all feature full kitchens, and some have fireplaces, dishwashers, washing machines, and dryers.

  • Bonnie’s Bakery: Housemade treats are baked on site daily.
  • Keep your eyes peeled for spotted deer and other wildlife.
  • Horseback riding is available just a half mile away.
  • Kayaking and tubing: Rent equipment from Happy Hollow, located less than a half mile from the property.

Rio Frio, Texas: River Activities, Scenic Hiking, and Bird Watching

The Frio River was named after its cool, clear waters fed by icy underground springs (“frio” translates to “cold” in Spanish). The Frio flows through southern Texas, from Kent down to Three Rivers, where it merges with the Atascosa and Nueces Rivers. Limestone bluffs and bald cypress trees line the shallow banks. Head to Garner State Park to go tubing, kayaking, or paddleboating. Eleven miles of elevated trails feature scenic overlooks.

Farther north, Lost Maples State Natural Area draws leaf peepers each fall, when its majestic maple trees turn to gold. But there’s plenty to see here no matter the season, including a diverse population of plants and birds. Many are endemic to the area, such as the golden-cheeked warbler.

This is a nice cute little cabin. Not as close to the river as I thought but it was a great little family spot. We even caught a couple trout.

Thank you for staying with us! All of our cabins are less than 100 yards from the river - that keeps us from putting our guests at risk when if floods. I'm sorry you through it would be closer, but glad you enjoyed your time with us.

We had a wonderful time! The beatiful Rio Frio, the biggest tree in Texas, the new pool, hot tub, and sports courts - all right there along with being out in nature and a warm cabin to boot! Absolutely love it at Crider's!
