Our Story

We took our first family trip to Current River back in 2015. Our oldest son was just 2 years old at the time, and he pronounced Current River as Camp River. Fast forward to 2019, we had decided to build a getaway cabin here in Alton and loved everything so much so we decided to just move here.

Our family absolutely loves to camp so we thought we’d take a chance and start a campground here, but we needed a name of course. We could think of nothing better than Camp River. We are a family friendly oriented campground. We just love seeing families make memories together that will last a lifetime.

With a focus on providing an enjoyable experience for families, we strive to ensure that each guest has a wonderful time at our campground. From cozy campfires to exciting outdoor activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy during their stay at Camp River. We believe in the power of shared experiences and the joy they bring to families who visit us. Our campground is designed to be a safe and beautiful place where families can relax and have fun together.

We try to put ourselves in your shoes. The bathrooms are kept clean and the grounds are maintained. If you forget that “something” don’t worry, we have a convenience store on the site.

Great cabins and camper spaces, friendly staff. Camp store that has everything in case you forget something. Very affordable and right in the middle of many sites to explore and see.
