You can even get the kids excited and involved by Geocaching on the way! Want to relax and create memories?

Meanwhile kick up your feet and relax in the trees with a hammock, you might love it! The camp kitchen area allows for efficient food storage and meal preparation space during your stay. Whether you want to use the on site grill or cook over the fire, the covered kitchen area will help make your meal duties at camp a breeze. When it comes to getting cleaned up, the solar shower bag compatible camp shower gives you a space to rinse off and clean up in privacy.

Great spot
My family and I loved this camping de the first time back in 2020 and we come back each year, sometimes with our friends, sometimes just by ourselves. The privacy is something we value and the cleanliness as well. If not for a factory that makes super load noises on Monday morning for at least an hour( it doesn’t do it on weekends) it was an awesome stay. Thank you Zack

A Beautiful Weekend on the River
This river site is so wonderful! Easy to get to, comfortable, and spacious. We love being right on the river's edge, in a spot that is accessible but still tucked away and private. The outdoor kitchen area is perfect and the platforms make for a great sleeping experience. Zach is a great host, very responsive and accommodating. This was our second annual visit to this site - and we look forward to returning again!

This was a really beautiful campsite. It was just two of us for this trip, but it could accommodate a fairly large group very comfortably. The three platforms for tents (one was massive) where great, and there were a number of other small tent areas around the space, some of which would offer a bit of privacy. The covered kitchen and small handwashing sink were great and made cooking and cleanup very easy. The solar shower was a nice luxury. The site is situated on a shallow, slow moving part of the river which made it pretty easy to paddle around in the kayaks we rented from Zach. Check-in/out where super easy, and communication was great. The only thing to note is that while the site is really beautiful, it's not particularly remote. There's a fairly busy public access point to the river right next to the site, and a busy bicycle trail just behind it. The site itself is still very private. You can't see people (and they can't see you) from these areas, but you'll hear them. We were also there on a busy holiday weekend, so it might be slower at times. There's also train tracks behind the site, and a very loud train which came through a few times per night. These are definitely not huge issues, and we would absolutely stay at the site again (even with me being more sensitive to noise, I'd still stay here again) but it is something to note before you book. But all in all, this was a great site that we'd love to go back to and take friends.

False Advertising
This campsite was a beautiful concept, and although we still enjoyed our time outdoors, there are definitely a few things that need disclosure. First off, there’s a massive eyesore. A huge power plant across the water spews smoke into the air around the clock. The photos on the River Rock website are strategically taken to not show the plant. You can hear the loudspeakers from the plant across the water. There was also a train blaring its horn every so often, all day and all night. Sleep was minimal, even with white noise playing through a speaker. Boats went through the river at night with very loud partiers, so just be aware. Also I was told that I could rent kayaks, billed through a PayPal invoice. I requested three kayaks; I sent the message a good four days before the trip. I never received a response to that message, or other questions I had asked. Once we arrived, my boyfriend tried calling the phone number given to us to again request kayaks. There was no answer, so we left a message and never got a call back. I booked this site for my birthday and was terribly disappointed. It was pricey for a campsite, but I booked it because I genuinely thought it was worth the extra money. Unfortunately I was wrong. I also now see that I should’ve read more reviews. I hope this review helps someone else.

Zach's campsite is amazing and we all had a great time. Zach is a great host - communicative, responsive, and very friendly. We all really appreciated the amenities the site has to offer and the privacy and remote feel of the site while still being close to the trail and town if necessary. We'd definitely come back for another stay!
