Great spot on the oh so beautiful south fork of the smith river. Our host Tyler was more than accommodating. With limited camping options in the area, this place is really a hidden gem. Surrounded by year round recreational opportunities we will definitely be returning & recommending this place to friends!

This spot exceeded our expectations. We absolutely loved being able to swim in the clear blue water and just relax in our hammock. We picked delicious blackberries nearby. The view was wonderful from the small deck and this spot was more secluded then we originally thought. Neighbors are near by, but we didn’t really notice that much. Having a bathroom and drinking water near by was a plus as well.

This camp site was amazing! The drive was a bit longer than expected but by far our favorite we stayed at along our trip. There is plenty of space if you want to camp up on the grass, great bathroom and drinking water. The deck along the river was the best spot for a single tent and cooking space. We woke up in the morning, made breakfast and spent 2 hours swimming in the river with our pups. Water wasn't too cold and at night you can see little bats flying up and down the water eating insects. Definitely can't wait to go back!

Jade Camp was such a sweet spot to camp at. We felt lucky that they shared this spot with us. The site is righr on a crystal clear river, very private, and deep in the woods. The river was an excellent swimming hole. The plateform was perfect spot to pitch a tent and they had a great fire pit circle with benches. They even provided us with fire wood (above and beyond gracious hosting)! The pit toliet, water, and great signs letting you know where everything was. Tyler was a great host with excellent communication. We would love to come back! Well done y’all!

This place is SO dreamy!!! I wish we could have stayed here much longer. I loved being able to set up our tent with a direct view of the beautiful river. We saw river otters, great blue heron and some other lovely wildlife. Very private river access and the water felt great!

Amazing! Such a beautiful view, very secluded and was exactly what we wanted. Private access to the river for swimming. Pictures can’t do it justice. We were sad to leave and will certainly be coming back!

Camp right along the beautiful Smith River, and I mean RIGHT along the Smith River, at this great private campsite. Its seems there is just one campsite on the property, and the site is surprisingly secluded despite there being some buildings in sight from the parking area. They have built a great deck looking out on the river and you can set your tent up on it if you like (we did - the sound of the river lulled us to sleep like a charm). There is a good water spigot, a fire ring, and log seats set up around the fire ring.

We camped the first week of August, which meant we had perfect temperature (unlike most of the areas around it, this part of Nor Cal stays pretty cool even in the depths of summer), and the massive blackberry bushes that obscure the campsite from view were bursting with literally thousands of ripe berries. We had of fill of them before jumping into the river for a swim. Kind of amazed to have this spot all to ourselves for the price. Go for it!
