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.
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.
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!
Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.
I am grateful for the girls that Skeet, Sandy and Rue had as our counselors because of the character and leadership they taught me. I love them all. Many are my friends still and I cannot wait to see them again year after year. We are all grown, some mothers now, some in interesting careers, but all of us sharing one special thing in common -- outside of careers, husbands, family and schooling -- the RRR Spirit that endures in our everyday life.
I will forever remember Rocky River Ranch as the greatest place on earth! To this day I still remember the nine summers that I spent at Rocky River Ranch. I hope to have my children experience camp as I did so many years ago.
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.
