Rocky River Ranch is a rustic summer camp with dorm-style cabins with bunk beds. Cabins are 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: 3 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.

I would definitely not be the person I am today without the experience of camp. I remember being 7 years old and so excited about my first camp experience. I don't think I slept the entire night before leaving. When I arrived at camp it was the most wonderful place I had ever seen. Rue was my first counselor and she took the time to show me around and introduced me to the other girls. I was scared at first, but it did not last long. By the end of the first night camp already felt like a second home. By the end of my first two weeks I did not want to leave. Rocky River was a part of my life forever. In the end what I took away from camp was friendship, love, respect and confidence.
I loved my counselors, I loved the river, and even learned how to sail on Canyon Lake. I still sing all the old camp songs that we sang every day after lunch to my little girl, who's five, every night before bed. I always end with, 'I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills ...' and then Taps.
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.
The experiences at camp gave me a confidence and feeling of accomplishment. First, just being able to take care of myself away from home (with the counselors help, or course) allowed me my first feelings of independence. Being able to try different activities in a non-threatening environment — things I probably never would have tried at home — was a great way of discovering who I was. Then, later on having the responsibility of caring for children by being a big sis to a younger camper and then CIT, gave me a life-long heart for children. Enough so I became a registered nurse working in the pediatric intensive care. I don't believe I would be the person I am today without those many experiences at camp.
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.
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.
