1955 marked the year that River Bend officially opened its doors to campers! Originally bought and developed into a campground by Harry Ritchie, it became Ritchies 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! Later becoming a cafe for campers, and now a fully stocked gift shop. The Yeargan family bought River Bend from Mr. Ritchie in 1970, officially becoming Yeargans River Bend, and remains in the Yeargan family to this day with the family still living on and managing the grounds year round.
We truly appreciate our returning campers and their incredible loyalty, as well as new campers who are starting new family traditions with us! We hope you will enjoy the upgrades to the camp, as we have our guests needs and requests in mind with every decision we make.
Perfect for families and groups of eight people! The suites offer four queen beds, two bathrooms, full kitchen, grill, and a porch!

We offer cottages that sleep a maximum of six people, featuring two twin beds, two double beds, bathroom, full kitchen, porch area, grill, and community fire pit for making the perfect amores and meeting other campers! Our Kitchenettes are perfect for smaller groups of four or five maximum featuring two queen beds, one roll away, full kitchen and one bathroom.
Our river-front campsites have been upgraded into RV sites! Beautiful river front campsites with 30 amps, so you can now run your AC units in the campground!
