This RV & campsite is located near the barn on our 5-acre farm and sits just above beautiful, year-round Wolf Creek. This spot is great for RV camp trailers as it is nice and flat with a beautiful view, sunny mornings and nice afternoon shade.

**We have an upgrade this year (summer 2022)! A real flushing toilet and a shower! We also added an RV dump station.**

This RV & campsite is located near the barn on our 5-acre farm and sits just above beautiful, year-round Wolf Creek. This spot is great for RV camp trailers as it is nice and flat with a beautiful view, sunny mornings and nice afternoon shade.

**We have an upgrade this year (summer 2022)! A real flushing toilet and a shower! We also added an RV dump station.**

The area is heavily barked to keep away the mud and dust.

We are close to town, but nestled in a quiet pocket on the creek. Evenings and mornings can be quite cool because we are close to the water.

When you arrive, come down the driveway and take a left towards the barn. Park anywhere on the flat barked area to your right.  

110 power and water are available for your use. As well as 2 tables, 4 chairs and a fire pit.

You may be sharing the creek area with other campers.

**Firewood and Fresh Eggs are usually available for purchase from our farm shop**

Things to do:

We have a variety of farm animals that love attention; dairy goats, pigs (seasonally), mini-cows, chickens, ducks and livestock guardian dogs. A family of barn cats roam the property and keep the snakes at bay.

You are welcome to pick wildflowers and wild mint and anise. Wild blackberries are abundant in late July and August. The wild grapes are delicious in October. 

We are very conveniently located just a 45 minute drive from Sacramento. 1 hour and 15 minutes from beautiful Lake Tahoe. 

15 minutes from amazing hiking, mountain biking trails and lakes in Auburn, Grass Valley, or Nevada City. 20 minutes from the American River Confluence with lots of water sports. Go river rafting in Coloma, a mere 40-minute drive, or check out the gold panning at Malakoff Diggins State Park. So much to do here. 

Auburn and Nevada City have lovely farmers markets to visit on the weekends, as well as delicious restaurants and coffee shops. 

If you'd like recommendations, just ask. 

***Please understand that we are a working mini farm with livestock guardian dogs. These dogs are NOT friendly with other dogs.  Bring your dog at your own risk.***

 The dogs do bark at night to protect our animals from predators. There are plenty of farm noises and smells, as well as the laughter of children filling the air. The sights and sounds are sure to fill your senses.

Just FYI, RVs over 25 feet may have a hard time turning around. Just be good at backing as you may need to back out of the driveway to get out.

Large groups, message for more info.

The three 8-9-year-olds in our group glommed on to Charity's kids and immediately bonded over feeding baby goats and fishing. This is a memory making trip for kids!

We chose a lower creek-side camp spot that still wasn't far from water. We loved watching the bats and enjoying the campfire.

Bring floaties for the creek.  There are crawfish and small fish to catch, too.Feeding baby goats was a highlight of the tripThe camp kids bonded with the farm kids.

Wow, wow, WOW! My friend and I LOVED Charity's farm. It was the perfect idyllic setting for us city slickers.

Charity and her kids are absolutely lovely. Warm, friendly and took the time to get to know us. Her two little girls were bright, curious, fun, chatty in the best way. There were a couple of family friends that stopped by and it was even nice chatting with them. There was a lot of warmth all around that weekend!

We got to get up close and personal with the animals-cuddling baby goats, hunting for duck eggs. It was like a scene out of a movie-one of the baby goats got out and started bouncing around with us, following us.

The property has a stream-we were too chicken to get in even though it was pretty hot that day but I can see it being perfect in the heat of the summer. We were a short drive to downtown Nevada City and Grass Valley-we LOVED both downtowns. You must check them out if you're in the area.

The compost toilet was in the barn. Also in the barn was a fridge fully of goodies and a shelf of additional goodies for purchase. Charity is working on building a flushing toilet and shower but honestly that composting toilet worked just fine. We loved being close to the barn and potable water. I'm definitely bookmarking this place and coming back.

Enjoyed the farm and all the wonderful animals. Even had different kitties visiting us at night for cuddles. The access to the creek let our dog take refreshing swims. Also enjoyed the variety of birds as we sipped our coffee in the morning. Charity and her kids were wonderful folks.

I loved camping here it’s a perfect site. My boyfriend ended up having his asthma really bad from the cold and allergies so we are definitely planning on coming back when we can stay longer and he is feeling better. I loved touring and seeing their animals, and walking around. Really cute town nearby and fun things to do.

My family of four and another family of four with whom we were traveling had a wonderful stay at Charity's property. We booked it the same day (we were en route from Nevada to the Bay Area) and Charity was quick to respond with a welcome note. The property itself was lovely, with a large fire pit and a creek with seating. AND, our kids had a wonderful time playing with the farm animals and Charity's four very welcoming kids. We had two RVs, which the property was able to accommodate. We all look forward to staying at this property again!

The area down by the creek is such a beautifully serene pocket of land. A perfect spot for a hot summer day, you can take cool dips in the creek and sunbathe all day to your heart's content. They’ve got a few different spots to camp and you can choose your own spot once you get there. Their farm store is definitely worth checking out too. They’ve got a whole bunch of homemade goodies in there like goat cheese with olives, granola, and fresh eggs. There are also other odds and ends for sale that you might have forgotten. There are a few cows and goats on the property, this is where they get their fresh milk from! The host and her kids were such sweeties, her girls showed me the farm stand and recommended I get some of the goat cheese with olives. They also showed me the best spot to pick the blackberries :)

Definitely recommend coming to camp here!

There's so many blackberries to pick! (If you come in late July, early August)The host's dog coming to say hi :)AppleGrass Farm RV or Tent SpotAppleGrass Farm RV or Tent Spot
