Choose to camp Eagles Nest and be perched at the top of Ascension Ranch for amazing views of Folsom Lake by day, and city lights by night. This is a spectacular multi-tiered site that gets lots of sunshine, and is set up with the common area being at the highest point for the best views in the house, also boasting a rock-lined fire pit and large picnic table. Take a few steps down to the lower tier for a nice flat tent-area that can comfortably house 2-4 tents depending on size. For those who crave more privacy, you're welcome to wonder anywhere above or below the tiered area to find an exclusive tent-pad that tickles your fancy. This is the ideal pick for those who are seeking more sun than shade, a whole lot of privacy, and un-obstructed views with walk-out / ride-out trail head access to a private portion of the upper Darrington Trail (~30 minutes to the lake by foot, ~15 by hoof, and ~7 by car). 

With direct access to hiking, biking, and horse friendly trails that lead to, and around Folsom Lake, we encourage guests to bring all their toys ... think about bringing light weight paddle boats, water floats, fishing gear, binoculars, hiking gear, mountain bikes, and of course your horses.

This place was incredible! It was isolated on a hill side with a great view of the lake. Beautiful sunset and sunrise. Kalif was a great host as well. We will be back

The view was amazing! The campground was really big. I would definitely recommend 4wheel drive cars only and be prepared to walk a ways to the clean bathrooms or bring a shovel! The directions to the pace were good and there was good phone service at the eagles nest campsite.

If you have a single track diet road compatible vehicle. Or a beat up trailer under 20ft go for it. It’s a cool place.
If you have a shinny new 23ft Airstream and there is a problem communicating with the host who only replies over text only and that you have to turn around on single track dirt roads and bend your bumper because it’s too tight to turn but you still make it to a campground where branches aren’t well trimmed which cause multiple scrapes that might never polish out on both sides of your trailer from front to back…Maybe reconsider.
Btw. Instructions mention a code box to enter a code to open gates but if you get to an open metal gate with a code box that has been torn out and absolutely no signage. Your at the right place!

Lovely place, very private and clean camp sites, and operated by very friendly folks. if you have time and the interest, they offer horseback riding, which i would highly recommend. The only compliant I have is there is a rooster on the property...

Had a great one night stay here with 2 kids and dog in late July. It was hot and the lake level is low but the views and seclusion are amazing. We pitched a tent next to the picnic table, hung a hammock between 2 trees and stayed put for the better part of 2 days. It's a nice little walk down the gravel road to the farm with cows, horses, goats and sheep to entertain little ones. Bring water and literally everything you might need - there are no stores other than the town of Cool about 30 minutes away.

The stay at Eagles Nest was great. Everything was clean and the spot had really nice views. The farm animals were a delight! We loved our stay!

If you are camping on the ground make sure to bring a few extra sweaters to help even out the ground because it can be slightly sloped in places.
