Camping on Bruce's property was everything we needed and more! We loved enjoying the river, watching the rafters go by. The outdoor kitchen setup was great, and had everything we needed. There was even a pantry with leftover supplies. Already making plans to come back next year!

Gorgeous views of the river from the outdoor kitchen area. Paradise!

We are so glad that you have a great time and you are welcomed back anytime! Thank you for filling up our propane tank and cleaning up so well. You set the bar a bit higher for the next campers! lol Such a small world when we find out we have the same friends!

What a FANTASTIC location! We were camped not 30 feet from the American River, and setting up was a breeze. The Wade family has shared such a magical land - the common area has a sink, dining tables, grills to cook. On the river they set up shade and some seating areas. You can see and hear the river rafters, and I found that delightful. I have been thinking about my camping experience there every day since I left, and I hope to come back with friends again soon. Thank you Wade family!

Fantastic river spot! Shared kitchen space that was stocked above and beyond our hearts content. The hosts are friendly, attentive, and respectful. Lovely to fall asleep to the sound of the rushing river. 10/10!

This place was chill as hell.
Met Bruce by chance right when we rolled up he showed us around and we felt welcome.
Labor Day and not jam packed like everywhere else.
Loved that we were able to store our food and BBQ on the community equipment. Awesome spot!
