There is definitely enough space to set up the tent off of the platform, but we thought, "why not?".
For whatever reason, pitching the tent on the platform changed the whole feel for us.  So much fun!

Camp under ancient oak trees or towering pines in this area that puts you near rushing rivers or quiet lakes. When you're camping near Sacramento, you're within reach of Gold Rush country where you can still pan for gold and hope to get lucky, as well as world-class wineries, where you can sit back with a glass of pinot and reflect on how lucky you are. Enjoy rustic camping on working farms where you can rise with the roosters and enjoy fresh eggs for breakfast, or head to the Yuba River to relax in solar-powered, hand-built stone cabins or to rough it tent camping at the edge of South Yuba State Park. Peaceful retreats in yurts await you in the Sierra foothills and at the Mare Island Preserve, an abandoned Naval shipyard filled with astonishing glimpses into 150 years of maritime history. River rafting or kayaking along Cache Creek lets you stay active during the day, so you can stretch out and gaze at the stars at night.

Welcoming and directing you to your spacious campgrounds!
Floating down the American River!! This was so incredibly fun I can’t recommend this any more highly. It’s more like rafting than floating, there are some real rapids so wear a life jacket.
Enjoy listening to the river while you sleep!
Play rounds of horseshoes with your family and friends. Plenty of space to set up your own yard games too!
We provide many picnic tables for your large group.
