How to get to Camp Riverdale:
Follow Route 1 to Riverdale Road, Route 245. Riverdale Road is just a couple of kilometers east of Bonshaw.
– If you’re driving from Charlottetown toward Riverdale you will pass the Colville Road and Peters Road on the right – the next road on the right will be the Riverdale Road. If you pass Bonshow Go-Carts on the right, you’ve gone too far!
– If you are driving from the West (Summerside) you will pass the Green Road and the Crosby Road and Bonshaw Go-Carts on the left – the next road on the left will be the Riverdale Road.
When you turn onto Riverdale Road, the camp is 3.3 KM in, on the left side, after you turn off Route 1. There is a small sign on the right side of the road pointing to the camp and a small sign nailed to a tree on the dirt driveway leading into the camp. Sheepskin Road is approximately 1000 feet past the camp on the right side as you are driving up Riverdale Road from Route 1, so if you see Sheepskin Road, turn around!
Look for the green and yellow road sings a few hundred feet from the driveway (on both sides of the road).
