Rocca di Cambio (locally Rocche 'i Cagne) is a comune and town in the province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo region of Italy.

Located in the northern part of the Altopiano delle Rocche, the communal territory is included in the Sirente-Velino Regional Park. Sights include the Abbey of Santa Lucia and the nearby Campo Felice ski resort.
