We’ve hosted Girl Scouts, women’s groups, family reunions, church groups, and retreats of all kinds. With 135-overnight-guest capacity, our facilities are expansive enough to handle this size. Smaller groups are welcome to inquire about availability.
Wait until you sit down to breakfast, lunch or dinner to taste some of the best down-home cooking this side of the Mississippi — Texas style! Our dining hall (The Grubstake) and our kitchen staff (the "Cookies") cannot be out-done. Meals are prepared with love and care and are always served in hearty portions — no one leaves hungry!
The Forty Niner, our old-fashioned saloon, is the heart of Rocky River and comes complete with a hand-rocked fireplace, a can-can stage, an antique bar and round-top tables. Meetings, parties, rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions are happily accommodated in this fun-loving, kick-up-your-heels space!
The beautiful swimming pool at Rocky River Ranch is 30 x 55 feet, large enough to accommodate group activities. Built on the bluff overlooking the Blanco River, the lovely setting and functional design make it the perfect place for swimming and soaking up the sun or having a pool-side party. Certified lifeguards are required and available for hire.
Rocky River sits on a beautiful section of the Blanco River, where we kayak, swim, skip stones and sit on the bank to watch the setting sun. A large campfire ring overlooks the river and is the ideal place for memorable evenings with your group. Millions of songs have been sung here by happy, s’more-sticky faces!
The perfect summer is waiting for your daughter aged 5 to 14 at Rocky River— filled to the brim with new friendships, challenging activities and, most importantly, lots of fun! Check out our day camp and resident camp options.
In the hot summer months, we’re an all-girls camp, but the rest of the year, we offer year ‘round fun at our Great Escapes for women and Mother-Daughter weekends!
Rocky River Ranch is the perfect solution for your special event! We host family reunions, church retreats, teacher work days, company picnics, Girl Scout groups, and more with lodging for up to 150 guests.
I loved RRR from the second I saw it. The smell of the cedar trees sure was heaven compared to the pollution of Dallas. I only got to stay for two weeks that first summer, which was way too short a time. I rode the horses, shot up targets, and made stuff in the crafts hut. I know I made it down to the river a few times. It was the year that I got my red tie in the horseback department and I was sooooo proud! I got to stand in front of the campfire while the campers all went berserk over my accomplishment. I feel so lucky to have the memories that I do and those are of RRR. I don't remember much about my childhood, but I remember everything about RRR and how much I loved going there every summer. It was heaven on earth.
I have said for years that RRR made me the person that I am today. Actually it wasn’t just RRR, but also the counselors that shaped my experiences and helped me be the best I could be. I learned to problem solve, lead others and to be a leader others wanted to follow. I learned to do my part and that I can do anything I decided to do. I learned to say 'I can' a lot more than 'I cannot.' I learned to co-exist with others which helps me to this day. As a young girl I learned what others around me now in their 30s still do not know. I learned to take care of and respect myself, respect others and the world around me.
My summers at RRR were the most special times of my childhood. I have so many great memories that I'll never forget. Thanks to Rocky River, I found my true calling in life … teaching children! And, I fell in love with Wimberley so much, that I live here now!
My years at Rocky River were some of the most wonderful times in my life. My sister (Laura) and I still spend hours talking about our fun times there. We still remember our days of swimming in the river, riding horses and water skiing. I can't wait until my little girl can experience all the joy and fun I had as a child for herself.
RRR is not just two months of SCREAMING prepubescent girls singing songs in the Grubstake, Free Swim at the river or raids on other cabins, it becomes a way of life that helps guide you through the rest of your life. Not unlike the Marines who are brothers for life, those of us who were campers and counselors are sisters for life and will do anything to help each other, no questions asked!
I think camp was very beneficial for my daughter last year. She came home with new experiences that she will never forget. It's something that she is able to share with her friends and schoolmates too. It made a huge impact on her and I hope by going again this year that she continues to grow and mature as a thoughtful young lady.
