If you like organized activities combined with a lot of fun then join us for our special events....we'll be looking for you.

Special Events 

Our goal for the River Valley Horsecamp is to provide a quality camping experience for you and your horse. For some, that means peace and quiet. For others, that includes organized events and the potential for a large gathering of horsemen, horsewomen, and horses.

This Special Events page will highlight an organized event open to anyone who would care to participate.

We hope to provide opportunities for everyone to enjoy, either quiet or a busy day of activities. You make the choice. 

We want Happy Campers and Happy Horses!
