Mission Statement

The Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce supports all non-profit organizations, businesses and members (“members”) within the Canyon Area. We honor these “members” through the promotion of their business and fund raising community events throughout the year. By joining the Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce, we support our “members” by posting on our Chamber website, their business/contact information and links to their website. Fund raising community events are supported by the Chamber of Commerce through advertising the calendar event on our website and email distribution of posters / flyers, to all  of our “members”.

Our goal is to promote support to our community and to make the public aware of the beautiful Frio River and Texas Hill Country. In turn, this will help enhance the area as a whole and improve the quality of life in this area. The Frio Canyon Chamber of Commerce will not give monetary donations and are unable to do “weekly sales or advertising”, but are pleased and proud to promote our “members” and community area events which effects the bottom line for all of us.

We thank you for allowing us to be a small part of your lives and hope your continued support of the Chamber will grow each year.

These things and more are yours to enjoy when you visit the Frio Canyon, located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country between the towns of Kerrville and Uvalde.

Action here focuses on the upper Frio River, flowing with clear, cold spring water through 100,000 acres of scenic beauty. The Frio River originates in northern Real County and, fed by springs and streams, tumbles over limestone rock to create waterfalls, rapids and pools on its way to Concan in Uvalde county. Along the banks are boulders, bluffs and grassy spots shaded by pecans, live oaks, sycamores and giant, centuries old, cypress trees.

Residents of this Land of 1100 Springs are proud of the natural beauty of their area and encourage visitors to help preserve it. Numerous river camps and lodges from Leakey to Concan - in addition to Garner State Park - offer visitors a variety of accommodations and outdoor activities. Year-round activities include fishing, hunting, bird watching, camping, cycling, and driving the spectacular mountain roads. In the fall, see the pristine nature of the canyon filled with the turning foliage's crimson and orange. Favorite summertime activities are swimming in and floating on the Frio River. Horseback ride anytime in these tranquil surroundings.

Leakey, the Real County seat, provides charming examples of early Texas Hill Country architecture: the hand cut, native stone structure of Real County Courthouse, First State Bank building and Leakey School, all on U.S. Highway 83. Markers at the courthouse commemorate the history of Leakey and its founders, John and Nancy Leakey, early settlers of Frio Canyon. Approximately six miles north of Leakey on Highway 336 a marker denotes the site of the McLauren Massacres, the last Indian massacre in the Southwest. Travel 7 miles south of Leakey on Highway 1120 to Rio Frio, the Canyon's first settlement, to see the nation s largest Texas Live Oak tree and the Lombardy Irrigation Ditch dug by pioneers to water their crops. The Real County Historical Museum at Leakey displays authentic furnishings, tools and personal items used by the early settlers of this unique ranching and farming valley. Plan to stop by and see the new Chamber Office / Visitor Center located in downtown Leakey. Local folks will welcome you warmly.
