Frio River adventures begin at Happy Hollow Grocery. Don’t let our name fool you. We are a full service, family-oriented River outfitter for adventure and fun. We offer tubing and kayaking for all ages and skill levels. Happy Hollow is located on the beautiful, cypress-lined banks of the spring-fed Frio River. We have a shuttle that operates on demand throughout the season. Also, since Happy Hollow is the only store that is located directly on the River, we have our OWN River entry / exit.
