Frio Town TX, Frio County
The Historic Frio Town Ranch in Frio County, TX is made up of 4,629 +/- acres and is conveniently located just a short drive south of San Antonio. The diversity of the Frio Town Ranch is what makes this ranch so compelling. The front 900+/- acres consist of flat native south Texas brush country and open pasture for cattle. The middle section of the ranch is roughly 830+/- acres of irrigated farmland, and the south end of the ranch consists of 2,891 +/- acres that is high fenced and is used for hunting and recreation. This section of the ranch is very unique with two wet weather creeks that merge together, rolling hills with some of the highest elevations in the area, a great mix of open pasture, and lots of brush which is ideal for hunting.
The History of the Frio Town Ranch is very interesting with two historic markers that are thought to be campsites of Santa Anna and his Mexican Army along with a Texas historical marker for a Texas Ranger Camp monument for Captain Neal Coldwell’s Company.
The Frio Town Ranch is located in an area that is known for its strong south- Texas wildlife habitat.

Whitetail deer thrive in this environment and can be found on the Frio Town Ranch. This area in Frio County is also known for great dove hunting due partly to the productive farmland in the surrounding areas. Other wildlife that calls the Frio Town Ranch home are hogs, coyote, a few coveys of quail, and other typical native south Texas wildlife.
