Río del Lobo (or Wolf's River) is a location featured in Red Dead Redemption in the Cholla Springs region of the New Austin territory.


Rio del Lobo is a canyon that leads down to the San Louis River. It is a convenient shortcut for the player if they are travelling by horse from Armadillo to Chuparosa, as Marston won't have to go all the way around Plainview because of the cliff nearby.


In the Liars and Cheats DLC, Rio del Lobo is one of the four hunting locations available in the Free Roam Multiplayer mode. Here you can hunt for wolves, which will come at you in waves. After all waves have finished, the legendary animal Keifer the Wolf will appear.

A lot of foxes, coyotes, rabbits, birds, and deer appear in this area, alongside the occasional skunk and jackalope.


Rio del Lobo is home to the 2nd treasure, found throughout the game. From the picture to the right, up the slope on the cliffside and on a ledge near the campsite at the top, (Del Lobo Rock). The gold found is Jackson's, and can be sold for $125 or $188 with high honor. The gold bars can be sold at Armadillo general store, and MacFarlane's Ranch general store.
