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’ve told my family that if I’m ever missing, can’t take the real world, think I need to drive away, they will find me at Rocky River Ranch. I’m now 41 years old, a mother of two and every time I turn down Flite Acres Road it is like going home and it makes me cry because I am so happy to be there. I had seven glorious summers at camp and I cherish every memory I carry with me.
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.
We still can't believe it has been 50 years since my mother, Mama Knolk, started RRR. We are so proud that it is still the same as she built it and still has the same spirit upon which it was founded. Our children and grandchildren have had the wonderful opportunity to attend camp and we all can still sing some of the songs when we get together. May the spirit of Mama Knolk stay with all that have attended RRR.
I love Rocky River Ranch. It was a place I could go and feel accepted for the person I was — not the person I was expected to be. When we passed under that arch, the playing field was leveled and I was free to be myself, or even to reinvent myself! If I could ride, if I could swim, if I could do crafts or even if my only talent was spitting watermelon seeds, I was accepted!
I loved performing on stage and modeling in the fashion show. I learned how to shoot a bow and arrow, and how to do synchronized swimming. I wrote a 'Snoopy' column for the newspaper. In fact, a lot of the things I loved then are things I still love today.
Rocky River Ranch is like my second home. It is such a comfortable, fun place to be! I am planning to be here as long as possible, and want my future daughters and granddaughters to experience this camp. Rocky River has a special place in my heart, and is a big part of my life.
