#15A - Tent Camping Creek View (on plateau) - Previously a group site

This camp site located directly across the bridge from the lodge and restrooms up the hill on the bluff overlooking the creek.  This site requires you to walk up the hill and  transport your equipment to get to this site.  This site is located up the hill past #8 and #15 and is at the end of the trail. It has a 10X12 platform perfect for your tent. The site is set up for tent camping and has a propane fire pit that is available for use (you can purchase propane cylinders on site).    Each site has a picnic table.   

Reservation considerations.  We require a 3 night minimum for the major holidays - Memorial Day, 4th of July land Labor Day.  Beginning in the 2020 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 (16 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 added 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) 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 at our  sites  for ambience – not cooking.  This 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.

Checkin is between 4 and 8.  If you are coming from the Bay allow 4 hours - you must leave by 3:00 or 4:00 at the latest to arrive during checkin.  If you get delayed, for the consideration of the other campers you may consider waiting and arriving Saturday morning.   Going forward there will be no checkins after 9:00.

This place is worth the trip! Camp Nauvoo was exactly what we were looking for. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and the staff is beyond friendly and helpful. My only regret is not staying longer! We will definitely be returning!

We had such a peaceful two nights at Camp Nauvoo and can't wait to go back! The campsite was the perfect size for our family and the kids found plenty do to to keep themselves entertained while we were there. Next time we'd like to stay more nights because there is so such much to explore in the local area also.
