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!
Got some girlfriends you need to catch up with? Round ‘em up and make plans to meet for a Great Escape weekend of good friends, treasure hunting, and belly laughs!
May 1-3, 2020 | Oct 2-4, 2020
Dates coincide with Wimberley Market Days, our town's famous flea market.
COST: $180 per weekend. ($90 deposit)
Rocky River Ranch is a rustic summer camp with dorm-style cabins with bunk beds. Cabins are first come-first serve, heated and air-conditioned, with shower and toilet facilities. Bring your own bedding (sheets/blanket/pillow), as well as toiletries and towels (shower and swim). Friday check-in: 5 pm
We make it easy to relax by providing delicious meals all weekend in our dining hall, The Grubstake. From Friday's dinner to a sumptuous Sunday brunch, you can focus on taking a break, instead of figuring out meals.
Saturday morning hop on our shopping shuttle to embark on a treasure hunt amongst 475 booths of arts, crafts, gifts, and antiques at Wimberley Market Days! When you're finished there, Wimberley Square offers more one-of-a-kind shops from quirky to sophisticated. (Plan ahead and you can also shop in Gruene and San Marcos Premium Outlets, on your way to or from Wimberley.)
As an Escapee, you'll have access to our kayaks, or bring your fishing tackle to hook some fins!**
If the weather is warm, you can take in some rays at our cliffside pool or relax on the banks of the Blanco.**
Put on a harness and be pulled up by a group of fellow Escapees to the height of your choice – up to 40 feet high! Drop the release cord and enjoy a squeal-worthy and exhilarating swing!**
What's a weekend at camp without s'mores? We supply each cabin with the makings for a campfire and the gooey goodies.
Grab a flashlight and a folding chair for a private movie viewing under the stars at our famous outdoor theatre.**
Spa service reservations are first-come, first-serve starting at 3 pm Friday -- they fill up fast! Complete your weekend of relaxation with a facial or massage and feel your stress melt away.
If you'd like to arrive on Thursday, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you register and we'll update your reservation and add $35 to your charge. Thursday check-in is 5:00 pm.
*Deposits are non-refundable but may be transferred to a new weekend or to a new person for the same weekend. Deposits cannot be used to pay the balance for another person with a previous reservation. Deposits do not carry over to another year.
**Activity offerings depend on weather and certified staff availability.

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!
Mama Knolk — what a wonderful and gentle lady. She always wanted the best for us and for us to be our best.
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.
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 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.
