Rivers Edge Camping

Rivers Edge Campground is located along the beautiful Yadkin River at the Rivers Edge sports complex. There are over 300 sites available for anything from a tent, to a pop up camper, to a tear drop camper, to a 40 foot RV. There is limited water access and no power, with the exception of power available to campers without a generator, in need of access for medical reasons. There are water hydrants throughout the complex for sharing of water, port a jons and a shower trailer. All Rivers Edge campers should use YMCA Boulevard, NOT STOKES STREET, to access the Rivers Edge Campground.
