We stayed here last year and enjoyed it. Both times, we stayed during the week. They have a beautiful and pristine location on the Frio River in Concan, TX. They no longer allow canopies at the river because people abused it; however, it's really nicer without all the canopies destroying the scenery. Canopies really aren't needed since there is ample tree shade on the opposite side of the river. It's an easy walk across; you can sit in the water near the opposite bank and be in the shade. (The opposite side of the river is private property, so stay in the river itself and not on the opposite bank.) If you walk upstream just passed the bend, there are some falls/rapids. Kids enjoy walking up the side of the rapids and going down on tubes. On the El Rods side of the river and on their bank is a large rock that the kids like to jump from into the river. It's very easy to keep an eye on the older ones in the deeper water and on the big rock while staying next to the little ones in the shallow water. The campground itself is clean, and the grass is kept short. They have an office with a small store inside. I did not look in the store very much, but they have ice, t-shirts, toilet paper, snacks, etc. The shady spots are beautiful, but I can see where they could be a muddy mess when it rains. The pads are the black gravel, fairly new, and as level as gravel can be. Picnic tables are large. Most sites have a fire ring and/or barbecue pit. If your site is missing one, let them know. I have found the owners to be accommodating. Restrooms are clean and appear fairly new. They do not provide toilet paper or soap in the restrooms; bring a bag with both if/when you visit the restrooms. It wasn't clear which side was men's or women's, so we just picked one and hoped we were correct. We never ran into anyone else in the restrooms while we were there. Speed limit and general behavior are strictly enforced. I felt comfortable letting my children ride through the campground on their bikes with other campers' children. This place is very family-friendly. We saw lots of other families outdoors cooking and playing outdoor games, visiting, bike-riding, and enjoying the outdoors. They now have guest WiFi. I didn't get a good signal in my camper (my site was toward the middle of the shady section), but I got good service while outdoors at my site. I was able to check e-mail, send texts, and make wifi calls home. We enjoyed our time camping here with our family, and we plan to return.
