Great pics! Thanks to TCD for posting them and for exploring. I've gone past that area so many times and wondered what it looked like now inside...thanks for the inside view!

I never had the opportunity to go to RC but it looks like it was great fun. I find it very sad that Disney does not take the time to at least clean it up but I think that fixing it up would be a very successful proposition for them. Maybe someday there will be something new there.

Ok, thanks for identifying! I was the 5-year-old in those photos so of course I don't remember!

Great Work!! I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed these photos. I've always been curious about this area nowadays. I would love to go explore RC in person and see what it has become. I would LOVE to get my hands on some of the old signage and relics from this not-so-forgotten attraction

I wonder if Disney will do something about RC now? At least a clean-up maybe? I'd love to see the plaque given a place of honor

Unhappy River Country..how sad!

We went to River Country in 2000, I think that was the year before it closed. We had a great time..loved the pool & slides. I remember the kids watching a parade with the characters! Just saw the recent pics.

For 30 years we looked forward to going to river country every year. I have so many fond memories of chasing girls during our Spring Break trips.
Tri please tell me you took a few souvies, that is depressing to see that kind of stuff just forgotten about.
After about 20 years we met some guys from New York showed us a secret way to get in from then on it was our place for a week we would sneek in during the day and after dinner.
It brought tears to my eyes to see it in such a state. Just raze it and use it for new enjoyment don't let it sit there for those of us to wonder.

Tri thank you for giving me this gift I read you have not been around much lately I wish you well and hope to see more from your perspective.

I consider myself lucky to have been at River Country before it closed!

I will always remember Goofy going down the water slide!

We weren't lucky enough to get down to RC while it was open. It is so sad that Disney hasn't made an effort to do something with the land other than let it decay.

I wonder how you got there. I mean now it is completely cut off from the rest of the campground.Unless you jumped a fence or something. Sorry that this question was asked so repeatedly.
