  • Leakey, (pronounced LAY-key) is in one of most scenic and picturesque areas of the rugged Edwards Plateau.

    Elevations range from 1,500 to 2,400 feet with deep, dramatic canyons cut by the Frio and Nueces rivers. Archaeological excavations show evidence of prehistoric civilizations in the Leakey area.

    At the time of the first Spanish explorers, the game-rich Leakey area was inhabited by Comanche, Apache and Lipan-Apache Indians. Ranching predominates Leakey today, featuring cattle, sheep and goats. Flocks of registered Angora goats produce prized mohair.

    Camping and hunting are popular with visitors. Game birds and animals include white-tailed deer, wild turkey, mourning dove, quail, squirrel, javelina, rabbits, and raccoons.

    During the spring and summer, Leakey visitors enjoy tubing the crystal clear waters of the Frio River. In the fall, the beautiful hues of red and gold of autumn leaves on the tree-covered Leakey hills is a great sight.

    Garner State Park is 10 miles south of Leakey on U.S. 83.

    The Real County Historical Museum includes historic items and articles that are displayed in period rooms depicting the history of the Real County area. There is an admission.

    There are spectacular scenic drives. F.M. 337, both east and west, spans some of the Hill Country’s most spectacular scenery, including wooded steeps and tiny secluded valleys. West to Camp Wood leads to river camps on the picturesque Nueces River. East to Vanderpool and north on F.M. 187 leads to the beautiful Lost Maples State Natural Area.

    U.S. 83 north skirts the East Frio River. Twelve miles north, a roadside park offers spectacular views and picnic facilities. Texas 39 east, along the Guadalupe River to Ingram, Texas and Hunt, Texas is another picturesque route.

    The Wildlife Art Museum features art of taxidermy, sculpture, paintings and carvings. It is on F.M. 337 in Leakey, 3 blocks east of U.S. 83.
