We recently spent a long weekend at 4J Riverway. We had a large group and were split between six of their cabins. The cabins were generally nice and well equipped. The AC blew cold, which was great when sleeping. Each room had its own unit, so everyone could control the temperature in their area. My only real complaint with the inside was the dishes provided were dirty and covered in something that looked like coffee grounds. Fortunately, we brought everything but the kitchen sink from home. Every cabin has a small grill, a picnic table and a few chairs outside. There are a few community fire rings available around the camp. The only complaint I have outside the cabin is the location of the AC units in relationship to the parking areas. I went to my truck on the last night and smacked my head into the corner of the AC unit. Something on the ground to make me walk away from the cabin at that spot would have been helpful. There is very little light on the sides of the cabins. Beware if you are taller than 5' 10". The camp itself was located on the other side of the Utopia bridge from the Garner State Park entrance. This was great for our day trip to swim and our night trip to the dance at Garner. We also spent a few days swimming below the Utopia bridge. The kids had a blast and were in the shade for the majority of the day. The adults could move between the sun and the shade easily. Keeping an eye on the kids was no problem. The only downside to swimming in the bridge area is the quantity of folks that come from San Antonio for Saturday day trips. This is typical up and down the Frio, but no one was there to police the idiots with glass bottles in the river. Most, but not all, picked up after themselves and their kids. Trashing the Frio is one of my top five pet peeves! All in all, 4J was a great place to stay. The location is excellent, the staff is helpful and you can't beat the price.
