We’ve hosted Girl Scouts, women’s groups, family reunions, church groups, and retreats of all kinds. With 145-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 would not be the person I have become today if it were not for Skeet and Sandy. One of the biggest lessons I ever learned in life was from Sandy — I fell off a horse and Sandy made me get right back on. I had no idea what impact that lesson would mean to my life, but I have to say it has become one of the most valuable.
I am still amazed and in awe of the subtle and mysterious way that simple activities and experiences weave together to leave an indelible impression of love ... confidence ... appreciation. They seem so simple there in the moment ... the singing of camp songs, Friendship Circle at the end of an evening program, the Cowpoke/Wrangler drawing, saddling a horse for the first time, scooting down the rapids ... but each song, with each tug on the halter rope, with each stroke of the canoe oar, with each ring of "Goodnight, campers!" a new brush of color is being painted on her childhood experience. From those "colors" spring forth amazing women as evidenced by the many remarkable people that now call themselves Rocky River alumni.
I had a wonderful experience of being a counselor at RRR 1960-61 and 1966-67. Those first 2 years I knew and loved both Mama Knolk and Jane. Later, I was there with Skeet and Sandy. I have great memories of all those special people and all the fun times at camp. I'm so glad the camp is still going strong!
Rocky River was a HUGE part of my childhood and I cherish all of the wonderful memories I have. Sandy, Skeet, Jim, Rue, Arthur — y'all were the best extended family a kid could ever ask for. My favorite cabin, Bar K, holds fond memories as well. The stories I have would take days to repeat and the friendships I made were oh so REAL!
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!
I can't believe this will be my second summer away from Rocky River. I'm so campsick. I find myself singing RRR songs all the time, and i wish I could be there now! Camp has meant so much to me. Thanks for such a wonderful experience.
