#10 Cheyenne - Mini Safari Tent on Creek 

This is a family private owned small campground (16 sites only) located on the outskirts of Placerville. The property features 86.5 secluded Tahoe like acres with beautiful year-round Weber Creek. The camp sites are placed along the creek or the bluff overlooking the creek.We have traditional dirt camping, platforms with canvas tents and glamping tents for those that want the comforts of home.Our hallmark is our family teepee!We are all about tent camping – we do not allow travel trailers, campers or van camping.

Now that we have a season under our belts we’ve been told that we have a “family camp” vibe.We are a great place for families wanting a safe environment for their kids but also several group sites for those that want to hang out together.We are also a great base site for those wilderness enthusiasts with access to all the El Dorado National Forest including Desolation but want a hot shower at the end of the day.Tahoe is less than an hour away.We are dog friendly and love our pets but absolutely enforce leash laws to protect your pet as well as the other campers.Due to the nature of our mixed audience camp we also enforce our quiet period from 10 pm to 7 AM.

We have a lodge that is stocked with game tables and every game imaginable along with a ping pong table.The lodge has a Keurig machine and a hot water kettle for those hot drinks (BYO Cups).We have several tables set up for those that want to eat inside as well as multiple picnic tables along the side of the lodge with overhead protection.We’ve been told that our bathrooms are the “cleanest” ever and have changing tables and diaper pails.The showers are nice and cleaned daily.

For outdoor activities we have basketball, volley ball and cornhole not to mention the playground with swing sets, seesaw and tractor play.We also have many outdoor games for meadow play including a tug-a-war rope, gunny sacks, baseballs, gloves and a soccer net.We have hiking trails throughout the property.Our highlight is a camp fire bowl with bench seating with a stage to display camper talent which is perfect for the evening fire and roasting s’mores.We treat our guests to s’mores each Saturday and Tuesday nights!The common area has BBQs – both propane and charcoal as well as a cooking griddle (we also adding a campfire pit in the campfire bowl area for charcoal dutch oven cooking).We are in the wilderness so we have a cool room to store all food at night – yes bears live in the wilderness.

The Creek starts out in the spring looking like a rushing river featuring lots of swimming holes and fishing.However, as the summer evolves it is more of a small creek even though we do dam a portion of it (goes up memorial day weekend and down after labor day) for those that want to use the floating devices we provide (starts out 6 feet and ends up closer to 3 feet).We do not allow individual campfires but have propane fire pits at our glamping sites and group camp sites for ambience – not cooking (glamping sites we provide one propane tank – group sites propane available for purchase).

We are located in the foothills so we are a short hop to many local attractions that include river rafting, gold mines, wineries and historic towns with great eating establishments. There’s always something happened in downtown Placerville.To make things nicer for our guests we have the ability to rent a limited number of tents, cots, individual propane fire pits, BBQs, etc. - anything to make it easier for our campers.Come give our location a try – we think you’ll enjoy yourselves.

This site has a brand new 10x12 tent on a platform and features openings on both ends with mosquito netting and also a window overlooking the creek.  The tent features a double bed and small table. The site is large enough to place a small tent next to it.  This particular site is located directly across the bridge from the lodge and restrooms but up along the creek at the end of the pathway.  You pass sites #4, #5, #6 and #6A and #9 to access this site. It is at the end of the creek frontage and a camp favorite.   Each camp spot has its own picnic table and a propane fire pit that is available for ambiance not cooking. One 5 lb. propane canisters is provided with this site and additional ones are available for rent on site.   

Please note we adhere to a three day minimum of Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day!

From the minute we arrived, Greg was very attentive and helpful! He led us up to our campsite & showed us where everything was before having us sign some liability paper work. We were close enough to the creek that we could go dip our feet in. The BBQ area had 3 BBQs that were open to everyone, so we were able to make some breakfast each day. The bathrooms were very clean, and the club house was well supplied with games and some other essentials. While we had a little conflict with another camp group, Greg helped solve our problems and quickly squashed the problem. I would definitely recommend this campsite & may even check out glamping next time.
