River Rock Recreation is a primitive river front campsite located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. When making a reservation with River Rock Recreation you will have full reign of the 2 acer campsite and all of its features. Depending on the option, your reservation comes with included amenities as well as the amenities found on site. Any purchased amenities will be at camp waiting for you upon arrival.
There are 4 tent areas, a camp kitchen area, camp shower area and a large multi-use area within the campsite. A large versatile campsite to meet all of your needs while camping out! Feel free to make the campsite work for you during your stay. We only offer one campsite, the only crowd around will be your own.
Tent areas & Pad Types
There are five designated tent areas within the campsite. Two of the tent areas are located river front. Those tent pads are 10' x 12' wood decks. There is another riverside deck that is 20'x24'. The other two tent areas are located river side. Those tent pads are organic, a large cleared out area on the ground.
The river front tent pads can be used with a pop-up tent, as a deck or to hammock camp over. The river side deck or tent areas are ideal for larger or nontraditional tents. While the river front tent areas allow for a spectacular view, they also allow for the breeze off the river. (When there is one.) The river side deck provide more shade and the tent areas offer more privacy within the campsite.
When staying at the campsite you can choose where to pitch your tent and make the tent areas work best for you during your stay. When making a reservation with option three, or up to ten people, there are some other areas that tents can be placed. However be aware that placing tents outside of the designated tent areas disrupts the over all functionality of the campsite.
The camp kitchen area
the camp shower
Just because you're camping doesn't mean you can't get clean! Leave the wet wipes in the tent. The camp shower area provides a semi-private area to get cleaned up. It is compatible with just about any store bought shower bag for camping. The solar shower bags are intended to heat up in the sun all day and then will provide warm water. (Sit the bag in the sun and then shower up once the water is at your desired temperature!) You will find some corner shelfing to hold toiletries and towel hooks inside. The camp shower area is especially popular on hot or long camping trips!
