Whether gliding down the river in a scull, celebrating parties or hosting corporate events, the Camden County Boathouse at Cooper River was built for the enjoyment of the community, nature lovers, and sports enthusiasts.
Nestled in the oasis of the 346-acre Cooper River Park that spans Pennsauken, Cherry Hill, Collingswood, and Haddon Township, the 23,000 sq.ft., 4-story Boathouse opened its doors in July 2006.
A spectacular home base for nine area rowing clubs, the Boathouse also provides programming for individuals interested in experiencing the sport of rowing. There are six boat bays for storing approximately 100 boats.
The Boathouse features facilities for receptions as well as corporate meetings and training. The Banquet Room seats up to 200 guests; the Masters Club Room accommodates 24 people, and the Board Room, 26 people. A wrap-around deck offers dramatic south and west views of the river. The Observation Tower for racing officials is the crowning glory of the Boathouse.
Rutgers University/Camden manages the facility, bringing the same commitment to the Boathouse that it brings to the ideals of its own Rowing Association:
Parking: Street parking is always available from 6 am to midnight; later during boathouse events. Two on-site lots are available for 48 cars. On weekdays after 6 pm, and on weekends (day and night), there is additional parking across the street from the Boathouse. Utilization of this lot requires use of a valet service or crossing guards.
