From You
I have camped at River Bend for 39 years. I was 5 when my family started camping there. The best thing about it is the sense of community. Everyone is usually willing to help out anyone in need.
We love the family atmosphere and how everyone comes together!
It's quality time with friends and family at a reasonable cost.
I grew up there and now this is our first year with our daughter!
My children can be kids! They can take off on bikes and play while we can feel safe about it. They make friends and stay active. It is the primary reason we camp seasonally. It is hard to let your kids be kids these days.
I enjoy the peace and quiet it brings to my busy life.
My daughter actually gets to be a kid at Riverbend.
We love all the activities (pool, playground, kayaks, river, etc) lots to do!
