Camp Rivervale

Location Details

The Woodland Park

Camp Rivervale is settled among grand trees and a magnificent landscape. You’ll feel at ease in our park-like setting. Learn something new with your cabin mates under the expansive blue sky. See how high you can climb on the rock wall before jumping into the pool with friends.

You can find Camp Rivervale between Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Louisville on a bluff above the East Fork of the White River. Choose from a variety of different cabin options depending on the size of your group. Feeling adventurous? Bring a tent instead and sleep under the stars.
