All of our cabins are less than 100 yards from the crystal clear Frio River. Additionally they all have fully equipped kitchens, A/C, and heat. Every cabin has the following outdoor amenities: porch swing, picnic table, fire pit, and BBQ pit. Cabins 8 and 9 have wood burning fireplaces. We have a large pool complete with a water slide and hot tub. For other activities in the rec area you can enjoy basketball, sand volleyball, washers, tetherball, gaga ball, and the WiFi! From the porch swings on 10-15 you can watch the river flow by and listen rolling waters of the Frio River. We are family owned and operated and have been since 1949. Come for a visit to the historic, but nicely updated, Crider's Frio River Resort right on the Frio.

We booked cabins 10, 11, 12, &14 for our multi family trip the first week of August, which is probably our 8-10th year at Crider’s. We used to stay at Yeargains but years back they were unable to accommodate our large group and we switched to Crider’s. . The new owner/ manager was very accommodating and helpful and there were welcome new mattresses in the cabins. Each cabin has everything you need for your stay. Even though water flow was very low we spent everyday sitting in the river right in front of the cabins and our nights playing washers and cornhole tournament. There is great mowed, flat space for your social activities and ample picnic tables and grills for all your needs. Following after a longtime family owner has to be difficult, we had nothing but a great experience with the new manger and owner! We are a group of 31 adults and three kids this year and we will Be back again next year! Thanks!

DO NOT BOOK YOUR STAY AT CRIDERS ! The new owners are HORRIBLE If I could give ZERO stars... I would !! First of all. The staff is rude and lacks customer service skills. They charge your card for thing THEY feel they should charge. We just stayed here for the 8th year in a row and now with the new owners it’s trash. So sad that Jill worked so hard to keep this place family friendly. They claim we left a dirty cabin but we washed all THEIR sheets after wee took our own sheets off (for our own sanitary reasons). They also claim the CLEAN dishes left in the sink were dirty , when all we tried to do was keep the counter clean and dry by putting them in the sink A small bag of trash was left in the restroom. Maybe by mistake... I’m not sure but they want to say we left a filthy cabin. The cleaning lady just wants to go in there and not have to do anything We swept the entire cabin, upstairs and downstairs, this cabin was clean! It was clean just like all the other years we have stayed without an issue DO NOT BOOK YOUR STAY AT THIS PLACE !! Ashley , Rosie and Mr Escamilla are running this place to the ground They’re trying to steal people’s money instead of earning it the right way The people in the cabin next to us were very close friends to the family and we’re NOT staying in the same cabin with us. We booked for next year because we didn’t have to see these horrible people other than the day we checked in They don’t disinfect the cabins after each stay because they expect the people checking out to do it for them WE PAY A CLEANING FEE/RESORT FEE !!!! So THEY can do it for us ! I’m attaching a pic of our last year at Criders so they can count how many people stayed in cabin 15 There was NOT 40 people in that cabin... EVER

Our family has made the yearly trip to Crider’s for 10 years. Unfortunately, Crider’s now has new owners. Our visit this year was horrible!!! The customer service was THE WORST! Not family friendly !!

We rented one of the new cabins, has two spacious rooms with downstairs each with queen beds and another room upstairs with 3 single beds. Even though we mostly cooked out on the grill and ate outside on the picnic tables, we did use the kitchen for preps and making the sides. The kitchen is very well equipped with the standard appliances (stove, oven, microwave, etc) and it also has blender, toaster, and coffee maker. The cabin is steps away from the river banks where we enjoyed fishing and also floating. It is about a 45 minute float between the drop of and the take out, and all within the Crider's property. After a day fishing and floating the river we ate grilled burgers and enjoyed an awesome campfire with smores. The staff is very friendly and the property is pristine. Can't wait to return.

As always had a wonderful trip. Always friendly service and prompt resolution of any issues. River was also in prime form for floating. Cabins are wonderful. Grounds have really gotten better. The addition of a frisbee golf coarse and the pool are. It really is a great place to stay
