“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed June 13, 2008

I have been coming to Neal's for over 25 years now. It's nice to visit a place that time seems to have forgotten. I have Sprint cell phone service, so I don't have service in Concan. That can be a blessing. When I come here, I even leave my computer at home. We have done tent camping and stayed in their lodges. Both have their benefits.

Neal's has been family owned and operated since 1926. If you're looking for a luxurious getaway....THIS IS NOT IT! This is for those who want to step back in time and enjoy nature's simple beauty and just have fun away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cabins have a rustic charm. When you stay in one of the older cabins, you can just imagine your grandparents staying in that very same cabin when they were young. The tent sites are first come, first serve and there are only about a dozen of them. This is, in my opinion, the prettiest spot on the Frio river.

I've seen the same faces at the front desk and in the company store year after year. They almost feel like family to us when we visit. If you're visiting with kids, don't skip out on the "hayride". Actually there's no hay. A large tractor pulled trailer is decked out with clean mattresses and covered in clean sheets. Once boarded by the lucky passengers, the tractor pulls the trailer across the low river crossing and into the woods where watchful eyes can see rabbit, deer, skunks, armadillo, and who knows what else. After about 15 minutes, you reach your destination..... an isolated campsite along the river with a blazing campfire. A table is laid with cookies, pre-poured punch, watermelon slices, and lots of roasting sticks already loaded with marshmallows. Kids (young and old) roast and eat to their hearts content enjoying the sounds of the river until it is time to head back to the store. My kids are teens now and they still like going on the hayride.

Neals also offers lots of tubes that can be rented and a shuttle service for tubers.

We love this place!!!

this is a nice little reterat with cabins in the texas hill country on the banks of the frio river - the scnery is beautiful and you can swim in the river - the cabins have air conditioning an dheating, television sets, microwaves, kitches, but you have to bring your own bed linens and towels - they are not furnished

there is a country store on the premises as well as a cafe - the cafe serves good food, the food is the best part - the pancakes were great as was the chicken fried steak

i attended a small conference held here - they do have a large cabin designed for meetings - this is not a full service hotel by any means but it is clean and would be appropriate for those who like the outdoors

the next time they have the conference at neal's lodges, i might go back for the conference but if you're looking for a hotel.motel, this isn;t it

the place is not well lit at night, so finding the cabin they put me in was a challenge - the staff are very friendly and helpful though

  • Liked — the ffod at the cafe
  • Disliked — not well lit at night - cabins difficult to find after dark
  • Tips/Secrets — this is not a motel/hotel - no sheets or towels provided - if you want these services, go elsewhere
  • Stayed November 2006
