#10 Cheyenne - Mini Glamping Tent on Creek 

This site has a 10x12 tent on a platform and features openings on both ends with mosquito netting and also a window overlooking the creek.  The tent features a double bed and small table and has a hammock with a canopy outside.  Inside the tent we also have a small cot that is available for a child.   This particular site is located directly across the bridge from the lodge and restrooms but up along the creek at the end of the pathway.  You pass sites #4, #5, #6 and #6A and #9 to access this site. It is at the end of the creek frontage and a camp favorite.   Each camp spot has its own picnic table and a propane fire pit that is available for ambiance not cooking.  Purchase of propane is available to rent on site.  This site does not have electricity.  We allow dogs in the mini-glamping sites.  Only registered guests in #9 and #10 are allowed in this area.

Reservation considerations.  We require a 3 night minimum for the major holidays - Memorial Day, 4th of July land Labor Day.  Beginning in the 2020 season we do not do checkins on Sunday.  However, if you are on site and want to extend over Sunday night all you have to do is let us know in advance or during your stay.  If one weekend is booked looked to another weekend or you might consider a mid-week - Monday - Thursday visit. 

This is a family private owned small campground (16 sites only) located on the outskirts of Placerville. The property features 86.5 secluded Tahoe like acres with beautiful year-round Weber Creek. The camp sites are placed along the creek or the bluff overlooking the creek.We have traditional dirt camping, platforms with canvas tents and glamping tents for those that want the comforts of home.Our hallmark is our family teepee!We are all about tent camping – we do not allow travel trailers, campers or van camping.

We’ve been told that we have a “family camp” vibe.We are a great place for families wanting a safe environment for their kids but also several group sites for those that want to hang out together.We are also a great base site for those wilderness enthusiasts with access to all the El Dorado National Forest including Desolation but want a hot shower at the end of the day.Tahoe is less than an hour away.We are dog friendly and love our pets but absolutely enforce leash laws to protect your pet as well as the other campers.Due to the nature of our mixed audience camp we also enforce our quiet period from 10 pm to 7 AM.

We have a lodge that is stocked with game tables and every game imaginable along with a ping pong table.The lodge has a Keurig machine and a hot water kettle for those hot drinks (BYO Cups).We have several tables set up for those that want to eat inside as well as multiple picnic tables along the side of the lodge with overhead protection.We’ve been told that our bathrooms are the “cleanest” ever and have changing tables and diaper pails.The showers are nice and cleaned daily.

For outdoor activities we have basketball, volley ball and cornhole not to mention the playground with swing sets, seesaw and tractor play.We also have many outdoor games for meadow play including a tug-a-war rope, gunny sacks, baseballs, gloves and a soccer net.We have hiking trails throughout the property.Our highlight is a camp fire bowl with bench seating with a stage to display camper talent which is perfect for the evening fire and roasting s’mores (bring the fixings).  The common area has BBQs – both propane and charcoal as well as a cooking griddle (we also added a campfire pit in the campfire bowl area for charcoal dutch oven cooking).We are in the wilderness so we have a cool room to store all food at night – yes bears live in the wilderness but avoid Camp.

The Creek starts out in the spring looking like a rushing river featuring lots of swimming holes and fishing.However, as the summer evolves it is more of a small creek even though we do dam a portion of it (goes up memorial day weekend and down after labor day) for those that want to use  floating devices  (starts out 6 feet and ends up closer to 3 feet).We do not allow individual campfires but have propane fire pitsfor ambience – not cooking.  They require the purpose of a propane tank on site.   

We are located in the foothills so we are a short hop to many local attractions that include river rafting, gold mines, wineries and historic towns with great eating establishments. There’s always something happened in downtown Placerville.  To make things nicer for our guests we have the ability to rent a limited number of tents, cots, individual propane fire pits, BBQs, etc. - anything to make it easier for our campers.Come give our location a try – we think you’ll enjoy yourselves.

Checkin is between 4 and 8.  If you are coming from the Bay allow 4 hours - you must leave by 3:00 or 4:00 at the latest to arrive during checkin.  If you get delayed, for the consideration of the other campers you may consider waiting and arriving Saturday morning.   Going forward there will be no checkins after 9:00.

#10 was a awesome spot, it was my daughter’s first time glamping and she loved it! The spot is secluded and the scenery is beautiful, the sound of running water and frogs all night was amazing, be sure to bring bug spray and your own lights, the creek is clean and a lot of swimming spots for smaller kids we definitely plan on going back next summer

We had a wonderful weekend at Camp Nauvoo. Our mini clamping tent was great, and the location next to the creek was great. Even though the water level is very low this year, we were still able to go to sleep and wake up to the sound of running water. The rest of our group were at spots 1 and 2, and we spent most of our time there. I must say, spots 1 and 2 are really special. The grandchildren were busy from morning to night exploring, hiking up the creek, and meeting new friends. We found all the campers to be considerate and friendly. We will certainly plan on returning to Camp Nauvoo.

Love it !! 10 is secluded at the end and I love it . You do walk by many camps before getting there. The bathroom is a nice walk, personally I didn’t care. I woke and slept to the running creek !!! The bed is comfortable and it’s clean. You even have a grill you share with 9 that’s a plus . They have plenty of of outdoor activities , basketball, volleyball ect. Literally everything was great !!!! Greg was great and the young man .. shsss I can’t remember his name . I could go on and on .. higher recommend and we will be back .

Everyone was so friendly, and it was well kept. The cabin was so cute! It was wonderful to have 2 nights with no cell service.

Chairs and hammock by the creek. Cute little bear hanging from one of the cabins.The perfect spot to read a great book.Rock stack on the other side of the creek

We absolutely loved it. We stayed in Glamping tent #10 which was at the end of the row and meant we didn't have anyone walking passed our site. It's right on the right which our 5 year old and 2 yo lab loved. We enjoyed the communal bonfire on Saturday night which really felt like a small family gathering. The bathrooms are no thrills, but clean. The showers are hit or miss in terms of temperature - my husband said it was either scalding hot, or ice cold, while the ladies showers were either Luke warm or quite cold. There's a sink to wash dishes and a huge field to run around (look for the thousands of lady bugs taking flight if visiting early summer - it's quite the sight!!!). Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and can't wait to come back.

Spectacular campsite! This was the highest quality campgrounds I have ever been to. The inside of the glamping tents reminded me more of a hotel room than an actual tent! The beds were so comfortable, I don't think I ever want to use a sleeping bag again! I was so pleasantly surprised! Extremely clean bathroom facilities. Many campgrounds I have been to in the past were dark, dirty and infested with bugs, but Camp Nauvoo has set a new standard in my eyes! I've been camping here two different times and both times it was phenomenal. Greg is very helpful and friendly, made us feel right at home. I would recommend this to everybody who wants a hassle-free, relaxing camping experience where you can just show up and have everything ready to go! You can tell every inch of this campsite has been handcrafted with love and attention. It was so peaceful falling asleep right next to the sounds of the river. Exactly the kind of vacation I've been looking for.

Quiet spot in the woods. Falling asleep to the sound of the creek.

Close enough to Placerville to browse shops and get a good taco dinner

Camp Nouveau is a fabulous option if you want a camping experience and beauty of nature while still enjoying a few comforts of home, like flushing toilets and phone chargers. Every site is very clean and well-maintained. Site 10 is the most secluded site and has great private access to the creek. The bed is very comfortable, and sound of the creek is great to fall asleep to. My 3 yr old had an amazing time, it was the perfect introduction to camping, and there were lots of activities including the cute playground with the high swings. We'll definitely be back next year, and the year after, and the year after.
