Rock Creek Ranch provides a place where visitors can withdraw from the busy world for inspiration and renewal.
Located on a sweeping bend of the Wild and Scenic Smith River, Rock Creek Ranch welcomes visitors to take advantage of the peaceful feeling and natural rhythms of the river to support group retreats, meetings and family reunions. During the rainy season, when the river is high, it moves downstream with a booming and boisterous energy—one can almost hear the boulders moving in the riverbed. In summer, the river is an elegant emerald ribbon that gathers and slows to create two swimming holes, both jewels in the crown that of Rock Creek Ranch.
Rock Creek Ranch is operated by Smith River Alliance, a non-profit working to conserve the Smith watershed. Since 2002, Rock Creek Ranch has hosted youth camps, conservation programs, retreats and community gatherings. Remnants of the original stone lodge stand beside a magnificent emerald pool, with its old foundation serving as an impromptu amphitheater and outdoor classroom. The facilities may be available to groups and private parties when not in use for SRA programs.
