My friends and I visited "Sierra Foothills Group Camp" in March and we could not have had a better experience. The property is stunning - vast, diverse, and accommodating. We found several hikes, a river, wildlife, and many camping spots. The best part of our visit, though, was our host, Gary. Gary is a one of a kind human - he's spectacularly generous, quick to respond to our questions, and loves to teach others about the property. On the final day of our stay, he took our large group on a walk around the property with his biologist colleagues. We learned about the history of the land, his property management and maintenance, as well as lots of really great information about the flora and fauna all around us.

We will be back to camp at the Sierra Foothills Group Campsite - it was one of the most refreshing weekends I've experienced thus far. Thanks so much, Gary!

We absolutely loved our time here! The site was perfect for accommodating a large family camping weekend, with plenty of shade and sufficient kitchen facilities for meal prep. The watering hole on the campsite was not really appealing for swimming this time of year, but the Lower Coffee Campsite watering hole was only 10 minutes away and perfect for cooling off! Our only issue with the site was dealing with the aggressive yellow jackets during mealtimes (we had two people get stung). But bee stings aside, we had a wonderful time and hope to come back!

Fantastic oasis for peace and relaxation.
Perfect for friends, families, groups, weddings...
Full kitchen beyond our expectations. We could have prepared any type of meal here.
Private and very well maintained.

This was a great site, our group all enjoyed the place a lot. The pictures and descriptions on the site were very accurate and when we got to the site the place was simply awesome and superrrrr huge!

Our campsite host Gary was super helpful with recommendation for hiking trails, and always very responsive when we asked him questions on message board.

All my friends love the place so much and I think they are expecting me to book something of this quality for all the future camping trips to come... and I have to tell them don’t get your expectations up coz this is a special place and won’t be that easy to come around =)

Highly recommended!

River Ridge is a magical place. End of story.

Brought 15 friends out, rented the whole place for the night, Gary had extra firewood stocked for us and was extremely responsive regarding a late checkout and making it work for our group. The pasture and pond are perfect.

Everyone in the group's already talking about making it annual trip. That good.
