Riverbend officially opened its doors to campers in 1955. Originally bought and developed into a campground by Harry Ritchie, it became Ritchie's River Bend. Many of our longtime returning families still remember the camp this way. The office building where the suites are now located was originally a bowling alley! It later became a cafe for campers, and is now a gift shop to get your river needs.
The Yeargan family bought River Bend from Mr. Ritchie in 1970, officially becoming Yeargans River Bend. It remained owned and operated by the Yeargan family until January 26,2018. Yeargans River Bend is now Riverbend on the Frio, where it is run by the Traugott family. We will keep all the fun, family and friendly traditions alive as the past families did. To us, family is EVERYTHING!
We truly appreciate our returning campers and their incredible loyalty, as well as new campers who are starting new family traditions with us!

River Bend has a rich history that makes it a unique gem hidden away in the Texas Hill Country, since 1955!
