“Frio Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2009

I have stayed at 4J Riverway 5 times in the last three years. We really like the location on the river and just a few hundred yards from Garner State Park entrance. I know some time between summer of 07' and 08' the campground changed hands and is now under new ownership. Although I never had the issues many had with previous owners the new owners are alot friendlier and more eager to please. I plan to stay with 4j for many years to come.

We have stayed at 4J every year for the last 3 years more than just once each year. We have taken family and friends along the last 3 times we stayed and each has planned trips to 4J of thier own. We actually keep their number in our cell phones to quickly call when the itch to get away strikes. While the previous owners were a bit rough, the NEW OWNERS Glen and Linnea Fortner are the kindest, friendliest people you may ever be blessed to meet.

We often make the last minute decision to just get away for the weekend and each time we've called, we have been lucky to find a cabin available. We have stayed in Kara, Maw, Bill, Inlaws and Kari each one similar but unique, all very clean, comfortable and the kitchens were nicely supplied with cooking gear. Our favorite has been Maw with the 2 bedrooms, room enough for our larger group (4 adults, 3 teenagers, 2 young kids), full kitchen, fixed BBQ and the great DECK. We really enjoy relaxing outside were the evenings and early mornings have always been cool and and quiet.

Glen and Linnea have made some recent changes that we can't wait to get back and try out, like the new fire ring. These owners have no problem with kids enjoying the campground, ours have brought their bikes and ridden around, played volleyball, and explored the river, just a short walk down the hill behind the bigger cabins. Our most recent stay was July 18-21 where we rented 2 cabins for our family and our friends to stay in.

If you are looking for a relaxing "outdoor" getaway with a few homestyle comforts like a kitchen & bathroom 4J Riverway is the way to go. And for the kids who swear they will die without T.V. or Cell phones, good news...the cell phones do work and 4J has satelite T.V.. In all we have never been disappointed in a stay at 4J Riverway.

I had stayed at the 4J ten years ago and didn't stay long enough to have any issues with the previous owners. I had heard they were pretty tough on the guests. I decided to stay for a couple of days in May this year (08) and was delighted with the new owners. They are young, outgoing, and have done a great job with the place. There's easy and direct access to the river from their property. You're as close to Garner Park as you can get without being there. There's a small store on site for miscellaneous items and there's a gas station one mile up the road for anything else. There are lots of places to stay on the Frio, the 4J has good pricing and clean facilities. I recommend them if you are looking for a nice clean place to stay.

My family and I have stayed at 4J Riverway for 11 years with the Jennings. 11 years ago our children were 10, 4 and 2. Gladys and Bill made us feel comfortable and welcome every year. They watched my children grow up and Bill even built on deck on the cabin we always stayed in, he said it was for me. They were two very hard working people who ran a very clean camp. They didn't want problems and they did have alot of rules but we never had any problems in the 11 years we stayed there. We had long talks with Gladys and Bill always made time to stop by and talk to us. I know alot of people truly hated their stay but we had nothing but enjoyable memories of our stay at 4J. We will truly miss Bill and Gladys and wish them well in the future.

The new owners are very friendly and we are happy we called to ask about the previous reviews. This placed has definately changed since being taken over by the new owners. We had a wonderful 3 day weekend here. The campgound is clean and well kept. The cabins are nice and cozy. We stayed in Rhonda & Fonda and both cabins overlook the Frio. We would recommend family, friends or anyone to stay here. We would definately stay here again. The owners are also very knowledable about the area and places of interest.

This was the second time renting a cabin through 4J Riverway Camp. Once with the previous owners and this year with the new owners - like night & day. It was a wonderful time for me and my daughter and friends. The new owners are real outgoing individuals that will make sure you have a good stay. For my friends this was their first time and for sure not their last time. They truly enjoyed every minute of it. He was able to fish and we were able to enjoy the river from a short walking distance. I loved it the first time and now with the new owners it was more enjoyable for everyone. Thanks Glen for your hospitality, it was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Good Luck with your new adventure and hope to see you all real soon.
