Is there enough water currently to float without a bunch of walking? If so where should we put in if staying at Parkview?

I planned to post up by the big hole and chill but some of the family is set on floating...

Newbies here....

I think its 348 (river road). Coming into Concan from Sabinal on 127 , cross the river go past Neals and the post office. Hang a right at Andys(river rd). The first crossing is frio country. 20 bucks to park. Good place to put up a tent in the water to chill if water is too low to float.

you can put in at 1050 and float back to Parkview. My favorite float is River rd at frio country to Neals.

Best place to sit and have colossal amounts of beer is the northern cross river road(3rd crossing), south side. In the afternoon theres some good shade and you can sit there till dark or after and the beer tastes better under the stars...…...err so Ive heard

yall will have a blast and I wish we could tag along

We are across the river, at Garner. We had to walk some but itís that time of the year and the river is lower. Earlier in the week we were upstream and the water was warm, we then when to rock beach and the water is much cooler. Bring a fan if you sit outside. Itís been hot and little to no breeze. Have fun !!

For a good float on the Frio with low water, go to Happy Hollow and have them take you to lower 1120 and float back to Happy Hollow.

No, actually I just got home from the hospital in SA. The nurses were talking about several people that were being treated with IV antibiotics for severe bacterial infections linked to the Frio

I heard the same rumors the last time we went about the frio. I chalk it up to vibro in the bay. The water always got something in it. Don't drink it or get it in your mouth and have a good time

They had some signs posted along some of the slower flowing sections of the Frio also.
