Located only 10-12 minutes from Downtown Nevada City, you can enjoy open spaces on this lake and forest with 500 feet of lakefront off-grid property on Lower Scotts Flat Lake. This is a hidden lake away from it all, very quiet, with cool water for non-motorized water sports only. The glamping tent, 20'x13', is ideal for a couple or small family with a queen size bed, memory foam mattress and couch. The lighting is all solar outside and USB chargeable lights inside. We provide extra charged batteries for long stays. A BBQ with side burner is on your deck with complete cookware, drip coffee and tea pot, plates and utensils ready for making great meals together. We also provide sheets, towels and a large cooler for storing your food. We have paddle boards, kayaks and a canoe for sharing at no cost, with life jackets provided. Magical! The private tent site has its own private outhouse and heated shower looking out onto the lake. The drive to the property along peaceful Pasquale Road to the top of our driveway is well known by bicyclers for minimal traffic, so don't forget to bring yours!
Correction: we were going to open a 2nd site in July, but for the safety of our guests and concern of recent cases of Covid 19 in California, we will just have the one site. Because we understand that families and friends want to travel together, we are now open to accepting 4 additional guest in the campground, at a cost of $40 pp/night, IF THEY BRING THEIR OWN TENT AND SLEEPING BAGS. They will have access to everything we offer and the campground will be only for the use of your friends and family and will not have to share spaces with strangers. Thank you for understanding.
If you booked before 06/26 you can bring your pets.

The sagenite dream
Leaving this campsite was like waking up from one of those really great dreams that you wish would never end. Our days were spent lounging in the lake, playing board games up by the tent, stargazing and generally just moving at a slow pace. The site itself was the perfect combo of comfort and camping — great for our group of 4 to have the privacy we craved away from the city.
By far, the best part of this campsite were Mariela and David. They were the perfect hosts: kind, down to earth, welcoming, answered all of our questions (there were a lot!), thoughtful about our needs and two of the best humans we have had the pleasure to cross paths with. So appreciative of their hospitality and looking forward to coming back!
WOW. Hands down one of the best glamping experiences! Everything exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by the generosity and kindness of the hosts. We felt honored to stay on such an amazing property and to have access to the loveliest lake. Nestled among the trees, the space felt super private and secluded. The views of the lake were stunning (the color of the lake was so beautiful!) and besides a few kayakers/fishermen, it stayed relatively quiet.
We felt well taken care of during our stay- the kitchen was well stocked and everything felt very clean. The tent was beautiful and spacious inside (there were just 2 of us but the tent could have easily accommodated 4 people). It had two doors that fully opened, so while we lounged inside we still got to enjoy views of the trees and lake. The bed was super comfy and we had enough blankets to keep us warm at night. We enjoyed using their kayaks and paddleboards and relaxed in the hammocks. It was the perfect weekend getaway, especially after being sheltered-in-place for the past couple of months. If you have the chance to stay on this property, do it! Mariela is the best host and the experience is magical.

The hosts are super hospitable, and they make you feel at home away from home. The set up includes everything you pretty much need. The location is secluded yet not far from town in case you need something. Swimming/kayaking in the lake is so much fun. Just chilling outside & soaking in everything is relaxing.
I can go on & on about how gorgeous this place is, but I’ll leave it up to you to check it out for yourself. I, myself, will definitely visit again.
Mariela and David’s tent was fantastic. All the amenities we needed for a easy camping experience and a beautiful view. The host were friendly and inviting. I hope to visit the camping spot again one day soon
This site is a very unique and special place. The setting by the lake with emerald/ turquoise water, the tall trees, the spacious tent and wide open deck make it all so amazing. We paddled all over on kayaks, SUP and canoes. We jumped in the cold water and basked in the warm sun. Mariela and David are so nice and accommodating they now feel like old friends.
We will be back!
Our family of 3, including an almost 9 year old girl, had a great time! We used the canoe and paddle boards and they were fun and easy to use. We were a little nervous about the bathroom, but it was easy to use and we had no problems with it. We were the only campers and felt very safe. It was a great get-away after being stuck at home.
Loved our stay!
We had such a wonderful weekend staying here. Mariela and her husband were fantastic hosts. They had all the key essentials there at camp. The location was extraordinary, quiet and so peaceful. We'll be back next year!
