The vibe at Irish Creek Camp
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Irish Creek Camp is a fantastic place! It was exactly as advertised and what I was looking for – a private campground, away from the city, where to relax with friends. The property is close to American River and several hiking trails for outdoor activities. Wendell, the host, is extremely friendly and helpful – overall we had an amazing time.
Irish Creek was awesome!
We brought a large group (18 people) so booked 3 campsites, and had the pleasure of getting to meet Wendell + a bunch of the cows, horses, and dogs on the property. It's a beautiful location and the surrounding area (especially the river about 15 minutes away) were excellent places to spend time.
I'll probably be back there soon. I would definitely recommend it!
Great property to camp at and very easy to find! We checked in near the main house and met up with Wendell and Mrs. Hurley. They were very friendly, accommodating, and even gave us a packet with tons of information on what to do nearby!
They then led us down to the camping area, which was very spacious and there are several shady campsites to choose from. We brought our dog along and he had a blast playing with a small black dog that was on the property. We saw 1 week old calves and cows from a distance, but they never bothered us. Irish Creek Camp is a great spot and would camp there again! We definitely felt at home there!
This was a pretty and peaceful spot, only about a five minute drive from the North Fork American River. Our hosts were so kind, greeting us, checking in on us, and giving us a packet with maps and things to do in the area. There were also cute dogs. : )
My friends and I camped in this property. We received a packet that has all the nice rivers, lakes and the other interesting places to go nearby. The landlord was so nice and enthusiast. We loved the three dogs who accompanied us at night and made this camp special somehow. The quit land was an nice choice to relax and spend the night at. Also, the land was an awesome spot to look at the clear sky and the stars. we were kind of disappointed that we can't make a bonfire, but we found an alternative (the grill lol)
Spent a night out at Irish Creek Camp to celebrate my fiancés birthday and to watch the Perseid meteor shower that would be at it's peak visibility that same night. We were greeted by our welcoming hosts (and such friendly dogs!) and given a packet of information pertaining to the area and a bag of tomatoes that were delicious. The camp areas were spacious, we camped at area #1 which was closest to the restroom and not a far walk from the nearby water source. Another reviewer mentioned "being serenaded by the crickets and frogs" at night and this holds true, it was nice to hear. We appreciated Wendell being attentive in case we needed anything and the overall welcoming feel of Irish Creek Camp. We had a great time :D
My date and I had an AMAZING time at Irish Creek Camp. Wendell reached out to me to determine when I would arrive. I told him perhaps 930. I ended up being 2 hours late (not my usual style) Wendell waited up for us, was super polite, and super accommodating.
The land itself is perfect. With bathroom access and well access,
We were about 10-20 mins from the closest town which you can easily stock up on goods. It does get quite hot, but luckily you're a few minutes away from cool water to either swim or boat down. Will definitely repeat.
We had a great weekend at Irish Creek Camp! Wendell was a fabulous host, stopping by in the morning and evening to make sure we were doing well. The site has water for drinking and washing, and even an electrical outlet in case you need to inflate an air mattress or charge a phone. We wished there was an existing table and grill, but sounds like Wendell is dedicated to adding more amenities as time goes on.
The campsite was shaded, which was lovely. And we adored the dog-friendly aspect of the property -- our dogs made multiple BFFs while we were there. We hope to go back to Irish Creek Camp again!
