Frequently asked questions
What ages can I expect to find at River Ridge Campground?
Our minimum age is 21. We expect to have a lot of guys in their 20s and 30’s, the average age is more like 30’s – 60’s. However, every weekend will be a good mix of all ages as we ourselves have experienced at other similar campgrounds in our travels.
When does RRC's camping season begin?
For 2020....., we open the last weekend in March for our seasonal-perms and general campers April 3. We will close Oct 31, 2020
When would it be the best time to visit?
Anytime but its best to call ahead to make sure we have a host to show you around the campground. Weekends will most likely be busier than weekdays, and if you'd like to visit under more quiet conditions...Monday-Thurs. is your best bet.
Is River Ridge a Members Only facility?
Yes – River Ridge is a all-male, membership based campground & RV Park facility. A one-year membership is $25, and includes
your first day’s visit. We also have a $8 Traveler's Pass for those traveling throughout the country and will only be stopping by once in a season. Ask about our Friends with Benefits Discount program when you register. FWB s a collaboration of participating male-only campgrounds in the United States and Canada. The purpose of the program is to extend a special discount for those campers who have a valid and current membership in one of the participating campgrounds.
Simply present your membership card (or proof of purchase) when checking into to a participating campground and receive 50% off your membership fees! There's just a couple of terms you need to know:
1. To receive a Friends With Benefits discount, each camper must hold a valid and current membership (or proof of purchase of a membership) from a participating park. If presenting proof of purchase, membership must have been purchased during a previous stay at a participating campground during the current year. Pre-paid memberships for future bookings are not applicable in order to receive the discount.
2.The FWB Program is a discount program and not a membership or club program. Membership in a participating park is not guaranteed. As each Campground is a private property, they reserve the right to issue and manage memberships based on their own respective membership terms, criteria and guidelines. Each campground reserves the right to refuse memberships or service to anybody.
The (male only) camping culture is very diverse, and each campground is unique onto itself. Participation on behalf of each campground in the FWB Program does not constitute an endorsement or referral to another participating campground. Part of the fun of guys-only camping is checking out different campgrounds and finding the ones that suit your tastes best! It's like going to boys camp when you were a kid, you had a blast and didn't want to go home, well....this is for boys that have grown up but with adult responsibilities where on occasion they want to escape from the ills of society.
How much does it cost to come visit for the day?
See our RATES page.
Do I need to be staying there in an RV or Tent to attend an event at River Ridge?
Absolutely not – we will have many guys that will come in for the day only to lounge around our "filtered fresh intimate water pods" with their favorite beverage or enjoy some of the weekend activities such as Friday night movies on the big screen in Rosey's (our Club Hall) or frequent potluck dinners, fishing off our our new dock on the river, Saturday night bonfire and various other activities.
What is your Pet Policy?
Well behaved pets are always welcome at RRC! Please keep your dogs on a lease and pick up after them. Dogs are welcome everywhere on the grounds with the exception of the main building which houses the office, rental suite, day lounge, kitchen and bathhouse. Pets are not permitted in the highly filtered fresh water social pods. Campers must pickup after their pets. There are doggy bag stations around the campground.
Can I get a tour of the facilities before I make a decision to purchase a Membership or become a (leased-site) Seasonal camper?
We’d be happy to take you for a tour! You must call ahead to ensure a host or seasonal is available to show you around.
Is There a Pump-out Service for Seasonal campers? -- Yes. Is there a dump station? -- Yes.
My camper is an oldie but goodie. Would it be acceptable to camp with it in the park?
We know that not everybody is in a position to have one of the new fancy elaborate RVs and would welcome you wholeheartedly. Seems like we all started out with a tent, then gradually moved up to something bigger. We do however reserve the right to refuse anyone with a less than desirable camper that has been neglected and not maintained. RVs or campers, 2000 or newer is required. Having a nice clean desirable campground is our goal, having a nice clean and kept up camper is yours.
