Rivers Edge Camping and Tubing Resort is a family-friendly destination for fun on the Wolf River.
A Brief History of Rivers Edge
In September of 2004 I, Steve Pari, purchased the location which is now Rivers Edge. I had a dream to build a campground. At the time of the purchase the 14 acre property consisted of a bar/dance hall and a baseball diamond. My wife was hesitant, but said that “if I built it they would come”. By the end of the year the baseball diamond was gone and sites were being located.
When Spring of 2005 rolled around there were 24 sites installed with electric and water. By the Fall the roads and an additional 33 sites were in. 2006 brought about another 15 sites, bringing us to the 72 sites we have today.
During the Summer of 2007 I built a cabin and with the help of my permanent campers, an outside pavilion was started.
Our latest venture “river tubing” was started Summer of 2008. We started with 25 tubes and a mini bus. It has grown to over 200 tubes and 3 pontoon boats to serve thousands of people every summer.
The bar and grill have seen much change these last couple of years. Our “tiki theme” came from our motto “the Caribbean has moved North.” The bar now offers beer and homemade pizza.
The combination of camping and tubing are the result of a dream and hard work!
We operate as a “mom & pop” type business. My wife, Kathy, and I along with son Jake have worked from day one. Our permanent campers, who are like family to us, have always pitched in to help out.
We would like to thank all of the campers, tubers and bar patrons for patronizing Rivers Edge over the years. You have all made it what it is today!
