Introducing Concan

Tucked away in the scenic Frio River Canyon, Concan has long been one of Texas’s best kept secrets. The glistening waters of the Frio River, the rugged outline of the lofty mountains, and the stunning expanse of unspoiled woodland all come together to form an unparalleled backdrop for outdoor excursions and sporting activities. These factors, plus the area’s proximity to Garner State Park, have seen the popularity of Concan vacation rentals skyrocket in recent years, with visitors gathering in the region to discover an authentic slice of Americana that can’t be found anywhere else.

Things to do

Concan’s outgoing nature

Garner State Park is located about 10 miles north of Concan and boasts over 1,700 acres of Hill Country terrain, plus a sparkling 3-mile stretch of the Frio River. Hiking and camping are both popular activities, and are a fantastic way to discover Texas’s unique ecology. Ranger-led tours take this even further, and should be at the top of every nature lover’s wish list. The park’s summer dances have been a hit with locals since the 1940s, and bring people together in the evenings for a jukebox boogie. Book a Concan vacation rental near Garner State Park to have all these activities right on your doorstep.


Concan’s cool waters

The Frio River is named for its refreshingly cool waters, which come from underground springs throughout the area. A number of Concan vacation rental companies offer water-sports activities along the river, including kayaking, paddleboarding, tubing, and canoeing. As you make your way down the waters, you can spot the towering cypress trees that line the banks, or admire the large rock formations and limestone bluffs that have been molded over centuries. A swim in the Frio is a particularly pleasant way to cool down after a long day of exploring under the Texas sun.


The Concan forecast

The region around Concan typically sees 225 sunny days per year, meaning Concan vacation rentals are in perennial demand. The summer months see highs of up to 94°F, the perfect time for a cooling dip in the river, while a chill sets in each winter, when temperatures drop to 36°F. The fall season brings moderate heat and long, sunny days, ideal for walks amid the changing foliage. The area sees around 29 inches of rainfall per year, well below the national average, so you’ll have no problem getting out and about to explore your surroundings.

Natural features

The winged wonders of Concan

The Frio River Canyon is beloved by bird-watchers, who flock to the nearby mountains and valleys to see over 100 species of bird. Bring your binoculars and you can observe specimens like the black-crested titmouse, ash-throated flycatcher, and golden-cheeked warbler. The Frio Cave is home to the world’s 2nd-largest bat colony; more than 10 million Mexican free-tailed bats spend the spring and summer here.
