Discover four seasons of family fun at Crider’s Frio River Resort
! Meandering through the picturesque property, the Frio River
is teeming with water-based activities. Hop in a tube and paddle the shimmering shores, toss in a line for some fishing or just stroll along its idyllic shores. If you’d prefer to stay dry, hike along Buffalo Creek
and feast your eyes upon Texas’ largest tree, a majestic Bald Cypress Tree
set along the shores. Speaking of feasts, treat your taste buds to a plethora of pastries at the onsite Bonnie’s Bakery
. Once you’ve had your fill, return to your cozy, knotty pine cabin and watch graceful Axis Deer
wandering along the river’s edge.
We are a family oriented camp where you will build memories to be cherished for years to come. We have been host to families for over 65 years. Many guests are the third generation to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the Frio Canyon at Crider's. When our old friends show up each year it's like a big family reunion for us. Why don't you bring your family and become a part of ours?
We are open all year. Each season the Texas Hill Country offers a unique and special beauty. After the summer rush when the area is quiet and peaceful is an ideal time to visit us. Also, did you know that the Frio River is one of the top places in Texas to kayak? Our friends over at Inflatable Kayaker have just featured the Frio River in their Texas kayaking guide as one of the top 20 spots in the state!
Recently the Texas Forestry Service notified us that we have the largest tree in the state of Texas. It is a bald cypress, towering over Buffalo Creek and the West side of the camp. The Forestry Service estimated it to be anywhere between 300 and 700 years old. We have a special area on our website with information about this beautiful and historic tree.
