I'm going to Riverview!

Riverview Camp

Directions

Just Imagine… Lookout Mountain, gentle breezes, and Little River’s clear, green waters along with Mentone’s majestic rock formations provide the picturesque setting for Adventure, Inspiration, Character and Confidence-Building at Riverview Camp for Girls in Mentone, Alabama.

Tucked securely off of Desoto Parkway, our scenic drive is about one-half mile past the entrance to the famous Desoto Falls and about three miles from the Desoto State Park entrance. We are surrounded by privately owned beautiful woodlands. Little River, which borders the Riverview campus, is a gently flowing waterway that is classified as an Outstanding National Resource Waterway. But, please…don’t just imagine.  Make Riverview a reality.  Give us a call and say I’m going to Riverview!
