4J River Way Cabins and RV Camp
Reviewed 9 August 2010

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.

The campground is quiet, clean and small enough to feel very safe. We liked the gated entrance. The cabins had everything that you could need as far as dishes, etc. Air conditioner froze us out, lol. TV was great for the kids. We had a 3 and 5 year-old and they loved being able to ride their bicycles all over the place. The owner and employees were all friendly and helpful. I will stay there again. In fact looking forward to planning another trip soon.

We love staying at 4J. We have styed here the past 3 summers with the last 2 being twice between June and August. Glenn & Linnea are very friendly and accommodating. There two boys and my one love to play together as well. 4J is a great family park with a family atmosphere. We won't saty anywhere else when we travel to the Frio. Very close to the river and other amenities. I highly recommend 4J Riverway for your Frio River stay.

Our family has been meeting together for the past six years at 4J’s. This year proved to be another phenomenal week of relaxing in the pristine waters of the Frio River. As in previous years, the new owners were again fantastic in providing first class accommodations with service that exceeds expectations. 4J’s is a classic Texas hill country jewel and once you’ve experienced it, you’ll want to keep coming back every chance you get. The crystal clear Frio River offers something for every member of the family, be it tubing, swimming or just relaxing in the shade of giant cypress tree. And not to mention the world class fly-fishing opportunities within walking distance of the cabins. 4J’s offers a variety of camping experiences and if you are looking to experience the very best of what the Texas hill country has to offer, I would highly recommend 4J’s Riverway camp groups.

Thanks for such a great start to our summer. Our family had a great time taking advantage of all the ammenities. We swam in the river, played volleyball in the sand, rode bikes and enjoyed ice cream from the store. The owners even supplied all six kids with free kites. 4J Riverway is one of the cleanest and safest parks we've been to.
