Mineral Bar Campground is 1 hour from Sacramento (no traffic), and about 10 minutes off the 80 freeway when it goes through Colfax. Great campground, though we had to drive a bit to find hiking. But, Stevens Trail made up for that:

Sites 1-7 are closer to the water but also closer together and offer less shade. Sites 8-18 offer much more shade.

Hipcamper David

nice spot in terms of access to the river... but very loud in the first couple spots.
