Come camp at former Gold & Gem Panning operation on the Second Broad River, this little slice of paradise was once a part of the United States' first gold rush, in one of the most bustling regions in the early 1800s. You will have access to the campground's modern and clean bath house. 

Located at Gold River / camp + cabins, the grounds include several communal areas , you won't want to leave: plenty of fire pits, a river front beach, pavilion, community gas and propane grills.

These camp sites are in a shady field near the center of the property. 

Site includes one electrical outlet (110) and water (spicket, no hose). There is a firepit and picnic table for each camp site. You may park directly at your site.

There is little (to NO) cell service or wifi so plan accordingly by downloading your favorite shows or podcasts on a tablet, or better yet, plan to have an off-screen getaway, you'll be thankful you did!

There are 4 water/electric camp sites (labeled 1-4 in yellow) - all sites are first-come-first-served. Select you favorite and get set up :)

As people who camped A LOT in our childhoods, my husband and I found that this Camp Ground was the nicest, cleanest, and most beautiful we've ever stayed at. The bathrooms were beautiful and clean and the views from any part of the area were absolutely breathtaking. The owners were so nice and accommodating. It rained our second day and they came out and laid hay around our campsite while we were out hiking. HIGHLY recommend if you want a nice quiet stay in a beautiful part of the mountains.

This waa a great place to stay! Clean restrioms, lots of little perks to make camping easy and really enjoyable. Loved the games, fire pits, and other communial areas. Only problem were the masive amount of mosquitoes and flyes. But bug spray and fly traps work well for that.

Awesome!

We are so impressed with this campsite! Showers and bathrooms are super new and clean. The area is beautiful. There are a bunch of games to play and a book with a list of trails and things to do nearby. We will definitely be coming back and checking out some of the suggested adventures. Before we fell asleep last night we already started planning our next trip. Kathryn is super sweet also. This place is a gem!
