Cheri's place is tucked away in the hills above Nevada City. She has two nice dogs and five nice cats and is very friendly. The camping options are just being built out and I am sure will be excellent in the future.

We had a wonderful time at Chamba's Mountain! The host, Cheri, is so kind, and made us feel very welcome by answering my many questions and letting us set up camp where we preferred. The property is so peaceful, we felt really happy there.
The land is a quick drive from Nevada City (about 20 minutes if you drive slow), and so it's a great basecamp for exploring the town, the river, and the surrounding trails.
There is a bathroom, shower, sink, and stove available, which made it very convenient for us.
There are 2 dogs and 5 cats- all incredibly sweet and curious. It was fun to play fetch with the dogs and wake up to see them curled up at the foot of the tent. The dogs barked once or twice in the night to guard the property against bears and other critters, so bring earplugs if that might bother you. They did not bark all night, nowhere near that.
We had a great time and would recommend this to anyone who needs a tent spot within a short drive of Nevada City.

Thank's for being the first to initiate camping as our guests. Congratulations on following directions to get you hear easily and being open to choose with out intimidation to change your space. Good eye on the poison oak and reminder that it's out there. Yes good idea on signs they will be there for any other occasions for renters. I appreciate when guests can make themselves at home and know the story of Chamba's mountain, he would of loved the idea of Hip Camp to continue to grow people together. Happy Trails, hug Alaska for me...

The site has a great view and is conveniently close to Nevada City, although down a long relatively bumpy gravel road. Our cars were just fine getting there though. Cheri and her daughter were very friendly and even offered us ice cream. The dogs were also very friendly and loved to play. If you are looking for a more private site I would not recommend site 3 as it is right next to the house, but some of the other spaces are more secluded.

Cheri’s place was very chill and easy to access. She was extremely generous and kind and made sure that we had everything we needed. Was a non-traditional camping experience in all the best ways. Site #1 was spacious and private. It makes a great basecamp for exploring the area.
