#9 Pueblo Canvas Mini Glamping Tent on Creek

PLEASE NOTE THIS SITE WAS CONVERTED TO A MINI-GLAMPING TENT EFFECTIVE 8/30/2020.  PREVIOUSLY IT WAS A CANVAS TENT WITH COTS.   TO SEE PICTURES OF A MINI-GLAMPING TENT LOOK AT SITE #10. 

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 to access this site.   It is at second to the end of the creek frontage next to #10 (also a mini-glamping tent).   Each camp spot has its own picnic table and a propane fire pit that is available for ambiance not cooking.  Large propane canisters are available for 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 2021 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 (17 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 adding 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 usually ) 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 pits for ambience – not cooking.  It requires the purpose of propane 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.

During COVID-19 restrictions we will honor all state and county ordinances.  We will ensure social distancing and will close certain areas such as the lodge and playground area.  We expect all guests to comply as well.

Greg was a fantastic host! He met us when we arrived and introduced us to his dog (and introduced his dog to our dog) and showed us around. The campground is secluded and kept up far better than the vast majority of campgrounds I’ve visited. We made use of the swimming area in the creek and the hiking trail. We were able to eat nice dinners in town without too much trouble so the location could not be beat.

We stayed in Tent Cabin #9. It was a great little cabin. We had all the cabins rented with family, 22 of us. We spread out and it was amazing.

Camp Nauvoo was a great getaway for our family. Even though the lodge was closed and there were a few other limitations due to COVID-19, we still had an enjoyable time relaxing and enjoying the stream. Greg & Laurie were excellent camp hosts. Greg kept everything ver clean and would check in with us regularly. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great family getaway.

We loved the camp! The creek was cool and refreshing and the camp site was very clean with lots of shade and plenty to do. I especially appreciated the barbecues and hot water kettle, it made cooking & morning coffee super easy. The showers were hot and the washing sink was big & had plenty of soap and sponges to use. Greg was a wonderful host, he was friendly happy and always there when you needed him. He kept things very clean and really made our stay nice. It was not it never felt overcrowded. I think this is because the camp is fairly small so there weren’t too many people there at one time. I never had to wait in line for a barbecue or a shower . We truly enjoyed our time. We did not do much during the day except sit in the river with our chairs and catch crawdads with the kids, which actually was a lot of fun! We did not leave the camp although That seem to be the thing to do. Lots of people would leave for the day to go explore the area. Apparently there are several swimming holes a river and lots of hikes but we chose to relax and enjoy the creek and the shade instead.
the only disappointment was that you had to walk through other camp sites to get from one place to another. This really was only the case With the Glamping tents (which we had) But Gregg and Laurie did a good job of keeping the picnic tables and fire pits far enough away from the walking path that you felt you still had some privacy. If you had a regular tent they seemed to be set just off the walking path with a lot more privacy. so if privacy is something you desire I would recommend asking for a tent site versus the Glamping tents. This never bothered me however I could see some of the campers that liked to hang out in front of their campsites didn’t enjoy having us walk through several times a day. Despite that everyone there was very friendly and generally seemed happy to be outdoors enjoying such a beautiful campground.

We're new to camping, so it was great to start with the platform tent. It was about 12 feet from the stream, so we fell asleep to the sounds of the water. Beautiful area, plenty of stuff for kids to do, and the hosts were very attentive, helpful, and nice! We'll be back for sure.
