Frio River in Concan, Texas (Uvalde County)

Concan is a small unincorporated community in Uvalde County. It sits along the Frio River close to Garner State Park and is a popular destination for summer vacationers. It is also well known for the excellent birdwatching in the spring. Also, a Roy Bechtol-designed 18-hole golf course is open to the public called Concan Country Club or the Golf Club at Concan. The area is also dominated by large cattle, sheep and goat ranches some of which date back to when German emigrants settled this area of Texas.

Several outfitters in the area haul swimmers and tubers up the Frio River to designated drop-off points and then pick them up later downstream.[citation needed]

Neal's Dining Hall in Concan is featured in a 2012 episode of the syndicated television series Texas Country Reporter hosted by Bob Phillips.

The name "Concan" may have originated from the card game Conquian.[3]
