In the mid to late 80’s, the original owner of River’s Edge Family Campground found his little piece of paradise, an old fishing camp on the Bay River.  Being an avid fisherman, it was a great place for him to get away from his business and enjoy the beauty of the river and the peacefulness of his surroundings.  With only one neighbor and nothing but woods, he was in heaven.

In late 1999, he had the opportunity to purchase the surrounding land from Wake Forest University, which had been left to them in a trust.  With that purchase and his dream of having a few camper sites for his family and close friends to come and enjoy the river, River’s Edge Family Campground became a reality.

In business since 2003, River’s Edge has grown significantly over the years.  Even with this growth, we have continued to maintain a family, friendly campground for folks, young and old, to come and enjoy our little edge of paradise on the Bay River.  We are open 7 days a week, 365 days a year…so feel free to contact us at any time.  We will be more than happy to address any questions you might have about our facilities.

Come give us a try—you will not be disappointed!

River’s Edge Pet Policy

As with all campgrounds, we have a very strict pet policy.  We do not allow any large, aggressive breeds or nuisance dogs.  No pet can be a nuisance to any of our guests at any time.  For example, excessive barking (even by a small dog) is a problem for other folks camping near you.  Pets must be on a leash with an adult when outside and cannot be left unattended in any type of dog crate, portable fencing, or tie-out device. Dogs should not be left unattended in campers. Sorry but dogs are not allowed on piers for safety issues. Pet owners should also be aware of the fact that contact between dogs can often get out of control. Interactions between dogs should be kept to a minimum for safety reasons. Please be considerate of others and always clean up after your pet.  This includes all common areas and the dog park.
