    Concan sits along the Frio River close to Garner State Park. It is a popular destination for summer vacationers, and birdwatchers in the spring.

    Concan was settled about 1840 in the rugged hills of north Uvalde County. Concan was supposedly named for “coon can,” a Mexican gambling game. It is on U.S. 83 in the scenic Frio River Canyon. There are numerous dude ranches, resort camps and other lodging opportunities.

    Garner State Park – 1,420 acres on the Frio River, is an exceptionally scenic Hill Country area. It is a very popular family-oriented recreational park.

    It features accommodations for 2 to 6 people in comfortable stone and timber cabins. The camping area provides shaded sites for tents, trailers and screened shelters. Rest rooms with showers are available. There is a grocery store for supplies.

    Other facilities include a snack bar and restaurant in the summer season, pedal boats, and a miniature golf course. It also offers swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, and nature study.

    It is located 10 miles north of Concan, off U.S. 83 on Park Rd. 29. There is an admission.
