You cannot beat this experience! Treat yourself to private river access and enjoy the day in peaceful bliss. The swimming, hiking, and massive trees are worth the expense. We will definitely be back!

We were pleasantly surprised at this beautiful place where you can truly relax and be away from loud nosies and rowdy crowds. Mr Doug the owner was very nice and gave us an interesting tour of the property. We loved our tubing experience and getting back to nature. Highly recommend.

Well worth the price! Our group of three really loved this experience. Doug was very informative and responsive during the entire process. We really wanted to enjoy the river away from crowds and an overwhelming amount of noise so this was the perfect spot on the Frio. He only allows so many people in per day and we could go and come as we please. He had tubes, hybrid paddle boards, etc available for rent. We asked to rent one of the tubes so he went and got it and ran it over to us. There were plenty of places to set up a chair or sit on a tube and just chill. He allowed us to have our music on as long as it wasn’t disturbing the other guests. He gave us a tour of the property. The property has some of the largest cypress trees in Texas. There are also some blue hammocks that Doug has set up on the property for guests to enjoy. We had to pack out all of our trash, which was ok because that meant there wasn’t a lot of litter. I wished I had taken more pictures, but I was too busy relaxing! We’ll definitely come back next year for our annual trip. Maybe we’ll get to hike around and also swim over by the dam.

Adriana, It was a pleasure to host you and your group...I was honored that one of you came all the way from Nebraska to spend valuable time together...and you chose to come HERE. Thank you for trusting that we would be a destination worth your time and money...VERY happy you enjoyed yourselves! Thank you for giving so much information for folks to know...yes, we appreciate music, but everyone enjoying nature and their day is the most important thing, and thank you for taking your litter with you and understanding that we ask everyone to do that. Glad you took advantage of our hammocks...my wife is from Brazil and it is kinda in the wedding contract that hammocks must be available at all times. Literally in Brazil, people sometimes don't have extra beds in a room...they have hammock hooks in the room and sling a hammock when someone extra comes over to spend the night! Looking forward to your return trip next year! Best, Doug and Zeus

Do you want to see a big ass tree? Are you willing to pay any amount of money to avoid large crowds and be far away from loud drunk people? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then this is the place for you. The tree is majestic af. 10/10 highly recommend. Water is clean. There is a nice dog with a great personality. The owner is quirky but very nice, salt of the earth kinda guy. You gotta pee in the river or woods and bring whatever you need with you (chairs, food, etc) but it was fine.

Christina, you made me laugh with your review! Thank you for your kind words…and you may qualify as quirky too! Yup, we got big trees, clean beautiful Frio River water, and privacy…pretty much sums it up. True, we don’t have public bathrooms at this time…guests are free to come and go during the day and may visit bathroom facilities back at their lodging cabin, or at the public visitors center 1 mile away, or at a local business they might patronize. As for peeing in the river…I am sure nobody does that (wink)! No using facilities here behind trees, that is discouraged…folks can easily go to town. Yes, folks are welcome to bring supplies, chairs, canopies, etc…just no glass or styrofoam…and bring a garbage bag to pack out any garbage you bring in. Thanks again…come back soon! “Quirky” Doug and Zeus
