Clear waters. Rocky river and rapids. Just perfect for a two hour trip on the inner tube. It’s a short walk to the river- no more than 200 yards. The Frio is the best river around. We walked through one shallow part. We will return!!

We had two tents up, and the site next to us had three, so I’m guessing 3 is ok.
