If you're all about that hammock life, you’re gonna love Ramshorn Campground. Situated beneath a canopy of stunning cedar and fir trees, you may not even end up setting up the tent! Sites here boast fire pits and picnic tables. And the entire campground, which is tent camping only, has easy access to water and restrooms. Grab some of the fresh blackberries off the bushes before heading out for a day on Halls Ranch Trail. Your hammock won’t miss you, we promise.

Ramshorn is an absolutely incredible place to check out if you're into mountain biking! Downieville is 5 and a half miles down the road and has some of the most incredible downhill biking in California (I think!). Yuba Expeditions in Downieville has a great staff and a shuttle to take you up the hill so you can zoom down.

Nearby mountain biking - check out Downieville if camping at Ramshorn!

No potable water available at this campground. The spout was totally dry! Glad we brought our own water for washing up.
