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.
The Frio River is flowing nicely in 2015
Please call or email us with any questions or booking requests. If you are in the area please stop by our store and see our great selections of river and camping gear, as well as our gift ideas, T-shirts, caps, and river hats or if you can’t venture to the Frio River please come and browse through our store. Thank you for your time!
Hope to see you on the Frio, Jerry & Melissa Bates.
