The Oxbow is sized for smaller guest groups, or for breakout meetings from a larger group. Equipped with a large flat-screen TV, this space is ideal for a class, lecture, or round-table sessions. It's attached to our main complex, so it connects directly to our Wagon Wheel snack shop and Trading Post camp store.
We have three adjacent indoor dining areas in Frontier Town (the Dining Tent, Dining Hall, and Dining Cabin) and an outdoor patio area furnished with picnic tables and umbrellas for warm weather days. We offer family-style seating for groups of all sizes and convenient buffet-line service. If you're expecting "just camp food" during your stay, think again— we strive to provide delicious, nutritious, and fresh food that demonstrates love and care to each guest. We also welcome your requests to meet dietary concerns and restrictions.
Your group will love having access to our gymnasium with full-size basketball court! The comfortable rubberized surface is perfect for free time hoops, dodgeball tournaments, and the list goes on. Rain or shine the gym's got you covered ;)
RVR's camp store is located in Frontier Town as well. You can request that this be part of your retreat to give your guests the added bonus of being able to purchase snacks, beverages, and other fun RVR camp merchandise to remember their time here!
If your group is interested in taking advantage of RVR's unique activity offerings during your stay for an additional fee you can learn more on our retreat activities page and discuss what would be a good fit with your RVR retreat coordinator.
