The Rio Frio Campground has a similar set of perks to explore as their neighboring sites at Live Oak. Nearby amenities include a shower and 50-amp hook-ups. Hop on the mountain biking trail just west of your camp, or head east and toss your tube in the Frio to float the afternoon away!

We love garner lots of hiking, tubing, swimming but this one check the parks website if you want to float the river because sometimes in the dry times the river isn't flowing.

Way too crowded in summer. We now stay at a private campground outside Garner. Must book a year out.
