Welcome to Slate Mountain where you have access to 160 acres of gated, private wilderness with 360 degree mountain views and exclusive waterfront year-round on Slab Creek. Bring your hiking boots or your off-road toys and explore 160 acres of secluded, magical forest filled with wildflowers, butterflies, ancient Pines and Cedars, wild berries, and wild game. Pitch a tent or park your RV at your choice with amazing views and total seclusion. Spend the day relaxing, picnicking, and try your luck at gold panning on pristine Slab Creek waterfront where not a single human or road exists for many, many miles. Pitch a tent next to Slab Creek and spend an entire night bathed in the sounds of the rushing water and enchanted forest surrounding you. Plan a retreat. Plan a family reunion. Plan a hunting trip with the boys. Bring your motorless watercraft and spend an afternoon at Stumpy Meadows, a beautiful mountain reservoir a short trek from the property. If you bring the off-road toys you also have access to miles of trails throughout thousands of acres of national forest. Bring your snowmobiles in winter when the roads are inaccessible. Don’t feel like cooking? Frank’s Diner on Finnon reservoir in Swansboro is a quick 20 minute drive from the property. You can finish off the evening fishing for trout at one of the multiple Fishing lakes in Swansboro. If you need supplies, a nice restaurant, or a day of wine tasting to break up the grit, Downtown Placerville and Georgetown are both a 45 minute scenic drive.
IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE:
1) The final stretch of road to the property is dirt and there are some rough patches where you will need to take it slow especially if towing. We recommend a vehicle with some clearance, such as a crossover SUV or larger.
2) The creek is at the bottom of the canyon, 1.3 miles from the gate at the entrance, and the road down is very steep in parts. We highly recommend an off-road vehicle/ATV for easy access to creek. If your vehicle is 4WD you can drive approximately 1 mile down, park and hike the remaining .3 mile to the creek. .
3) Be aware you are in the middle of the forest and wildlife such as bear, rattlesnakes, etc have been spotted on the property.
4) The property has great cell service on the upper quadrant (we are able to stream movies using a personal hotspot on our cell phones). However once you drop below the tree line toward the creek there is no service.

Great camping site. If you're looking for a more private, secluded camping experience, this spot is great. It was just the two of us, but the the area is plenty big for larger parties. Nice hike down to a stream, also very private.
Elly was very helpful and avialable to answer any questions. .
Amazing site for peace and solidarity! We really enjoyed the raw nature of this land, and would definitely stay here again. Just a couple side notes if bringing children or dogs, there is quite a bit of broken glass at the main site and some scattered poison oak. The main road in had a fallen tree we had to remove in order to proceed and the road down to the creek was in a similar state. Im not sure how close we got to the creek l, but had to turn back after a bit due to fallen timber jutting out into the road and a general lack of understanding of how much further it would be coupled with how would we know when it got “too steep” to proceed further. If we didn’t have the child we would have just hiked the whole way down to save the paint job.
Amazing gem of.a spot!
This campsite and property was beautiful. The sunsets were gorgeous during the Summer evenings and it was so quiet and peaceful. Great views too! We didn’t make it down to the creek on this trip as we didn’t realize we couldn’t clear the overhanging trees on the way down while we had our kayak and paddle boards on the roof rack. We want to come back though and next time we’ll take the toys off our lifted rig to get down to the water. We explored a nearby reservoir which was super sweet and great for kiddos. The property owners were very informative, communicative, warm and helpful in all their correspondance as well. If you want to get away and not have any camp neighbors, this place will surely please! All in all, great experience!
My stay at Elly’a property was quite amazing. When we first got there we past the gate, which by the way is not visible from the road but we should have trusted the pin point location on maps. My group also had a Honda Accord on the road up which was tricky but definitely do able. Also, the hike down to the creek is farther than you think we didn’t even make it even after driving a while, but Stumpy Meadows lake that was a 30 minute drive away (bunny roads), was beautiful.
