Come camp under the Oaks. Located 5 miles from where gold was discovered. Rise and shine with the crow of the roosters and know that farm fresh eggs are available for sale. We also have organic produce from the garden. There is an outdoor shower for you to enjoy a short walk down the hill.
We are more of a boutique campsite. We keep the number of sites low and the number of people low. We do not allow open flame at the camp sites, but do offer a pavilion where you can cook, meet other guests, hang out and enjoy human interaction. Cell phones don't work well up here! We are looking to bring people back to a sense of community, not the insulated, everyday life of most cell phone watchers!
We only have 2 large group sites, camp #1 & camp #7. Otherwise it is two car max per site. We ask that you respect that for the other campers that are around you.
Enjoy whitewater rafting, some great restaurants, live music or pan for gold in the nearby town of Coloma. Also there are 90 wineries in the area, or stay on the property enjoying the peace and quiet of our 100 acre farm. Great place to make home base if you want to take a day trip to Lake Tahoe also.

The vibe at Columbia Flat
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Angela and Jeff's property is truly a hidden gem! It’s tucked away in the mountains but with so much to do in the area. Hiking, kayaking, tubing, biking, wine tasting, farm trails, etc. There is a lot of history to the property and area that Jeff was kind enough to lend me a book about during my stay. The tent sites are a just a walk up the hill and has a stunning panoramic view of the property and the rest of the hills. The property extends quite a bit and there are trails all over to explore. The site is well kept and has a lot of trees to set up under on the hot summer days. There is also access to water as well. I’d highly recommend staying here!
Angela and Jeff were incredible hosts! They greeted us upon arrival and offered to guide us directly to our site, but it was super easy to find. They came up the next morning to say hi, gave us tips on where to go swimming, and even gifted us some tomatoes from their garden.
We were in site 4, which might be the most private spot (and has a lovely view). They provide water, but we ended up buying our own for drinking and cooking. One of our favorite things about staying on their land was meeting their dog, Fred, a super sweet and friendly black lab.
We will definitely be back!!!
Great place to stay!
Beautiful area and great hosts. I plan on returning. Don't let the fact that campfires are not currently permitted at your site stop you from staying here. There is a communal fire pit area very close to the sites that is really nice.
Hidden gem! Very good for last minute camping plans.
We stayed for one night and Angela was extremely nice and accommodating. The site itself was quiet and spacious for 5 people, with a picnic table that came in very handy.
A bit closer to the house there is an outdoor roofed bar/grill/dining table. This was definitely a cool and unique offering of the camp site. I think the hosts should showcase better pictures of that feature. Had a blast playing card games and telling stories!
Columbia Flat was great. The hosts were so welcoming and made some delicious food on the BBQ and in the wood fire pizza oven on the first night. They also gave us great recommendations on what to do and where to visit during our stay. We loved the communal pavilion with the BBQ, fire pit and big table, it was great to chat with the other campers. The property is beautiful, mostly rolling hills of oaks and grasses, with pigs, chickens and gardens close to the host house. We stayed at site 4 and would recommend it. Sites 1-4 are pretty close together but 3 and 4 seem to be the most private of the bunch. If we were to come back with a bigger group, I'd definitely researve both 3 and 4 together to create a nice big mostly private camp. Our tent in site 4 stayed in the shade of a giant oak all day which was great because it was so hot. Site 3 is the most tucked away of the four, has a great view but maybe slightly less shade. Site 2 is closest to the water spigot and has great shade but doesn't have much privacy. Site 1 is closest to the portopotty but is also less private for that reason. We didn't have a chance to visit sites 5-7 which were on a different hill and slightly farther from the communal area. The only drawback of the property is that the car noise from the road is audible in the quiet hours of night and early morning. It is not enough to be loud, annoying or disruptive at all, it's just not the silent country feel that you might anticipate on 110 acres. This was a GREAT place to camp with my five month old and we will definitely be back.
Our hosts were friendly and thoughtful - it was a cold night when we visited, so they had set aside some firewood for us next to the fire ring (which our dog happily interpreted as a pile of sticks to pilfer). Andrea even brought us farm-fresh eggs in the morning. The property has a good amount of space to roam. The campsites are fairly close together on a hill overlooking the hosts' home, but we were the only campers when we visited, so we felt like we had plenty of privacy.
The house is easy to find right off the road and the 4 campsites sit on the top of a grassy hill down a well marked path. Angela came up to meet us and was incredibly friendly and welcoming. It is relatively quiet and easy to find solitude or socialize with some of the other campers at the communal fire pit. There's a portable bathroom just a short walk from the campsites and a water spigot close by. We had a wonderful time and would suggest this to anyone passing through the area.
