Accommodations at Crider’s Cabins on the Frio

So what sets Crider’s on the Frio apart? Well, aside from the obvious splendor of the surroundings, there’s much to recommend the lodgings themselves.

Each of the fifteen knotty pine cabins is fully air-conditioned, providing a safe haven from the heat of a searing Texas summer or the chill of a winter’s evening.


Each kitchen is furnished with all the appliances you could need, including a refrigerator, microwave, range, as well as assorted cookware.

And some (but not all) cabins offer a few little extra luxuries, such as a fireplace, a washer-dryer, dishwasher, or even cable TV! There is also a general store on the site, just in case you forget any essentials.

And when you step outside, you’ll see the attention to detail doesn’t stop there. Each cabin has its own fire pit and BBQ pit so guests can cook up a storm in the outdoors on those glorious summer evenings.

There’s a perfect balance between the friendly, communal atmosphere of a campsite and the serenity of a rural retreat. You can socialize if you want, but there’s absolutely no obligation.

Outdoor Activities At Crider’s Cabins On The Frio

There’s plenty for the outdoorsmen, but if that’s not really your bag you’ll also find much to appreciate at Crider’s. Take Bonnie’s Bakery, for instance.

They sell everything from cinnamon rolls to pigs in blankets, and they’re very reasonably priced. Make sure to preorder though, as Bonnie’s is so popular she tends to sell out.

During the day, why not take advantage of the porch swing adorning each and every cabin, so you can sit and watch the world go by. And when it comes to night time, there are plenty of options too.

If you feel like toasting a few s’mores and telling some ghost stories, then the outdoor firepit fitted at each and every cabin might be the way to go. Otherwise, there’s always the hot tub to help you relax and unwind.

Especially for the Nature Lover

This place truly is heaven for the nature lover: where else could you sit on your porch and watch deer peacefully grazing nearby? It also happens to boast the largest tree in the entire state of Texas. It’s a bald cypress which is 96 feet in height, and may be as much as 700 years old.

A hike along one of the many picturesque trails around Buffalo Creek will always yield one fascinating sight or another, so don’t forget to bring a camera!

Crider’s on the Frio is a great place to visit at any time of year. In the summer, of course you’ve got the sun to keep you warm and the river to cool you off. But Crider’s has plenty to offer during off-peak periods too.

At these times of the year, the wildlife can be more active, and the crisp country air all the more revitalizing. Plus, the team offer special rates during the off-season, so it’s worth checking their website to see what savings you could make.
