Nice host; shooting range too close
PROS: The host was responsive via text and when I told him the shower was broken, he offered access to a different shower. I was the only camper so I never had to wait for the bathroom. (But I only saw 1 toilet and shower so that could get busy in high season.) CONS: the site is within earshot of a shooting range so the sound of sprays of bullets woke me up at 715am. The sites are not right along the river so the pictures are misleading. The bathroom appeared that it had not been cleaned in awhile. The shower requires quarters to operate.
If you plan on using the showers. I recommend you bring your quarters as well because the shower takes quarters. $1.24 for 7 1/2 minutes. Other than that. It’s more than what I was expecting.
The campground itself is clean and well maintained. Its great for a quick overnight stay on a long road trip which is all we used this for. The only thing I could recommend is better directions. We arrived around 9pm so it was obviously dark. The directions stated to drive west through a locked gate, no gate was locked. We found the activity tent the next morning and realized we definitely camped in the wrong spot. Thankfully it wasn't too busy. There is active construction going on which makes for a long night of noise if you're in a tent. A gun range has to be across the river because come morning there was nothing but the sounds of running water and bullets. Bigger picture, it's a clean campsite that offers toilets and showers for cheap.
Wonderful weekend get away
We found Riffles on the River to be very pleasant. The camp host was very nice, greeted us and gave us a suggestion to a spot with a beautiful unobstructed view of the Feather River. There were only a few other campers, as this is technically off season, but the area is well layer out and spacious.
The easy access from the Highway and close proximity to the major highlights in the area was a bonus. The park like setting, with beautiful iron work fencing and decorative accent pieces was enjoyable to walk around. Easy access to the Feather River with plenty of beautiful views.
Pros: The actual campsite was beautiful and right along the feather river. It was very clean and we were the only ones there! We used this site the night before a hiking trip to North Table Mountain, and the location was perfect. The host was very nice and easy to communicate prior to the trip.
Cons: The on site manager is very UNFRIENDLY and not very helpful (almost seemed annoyed that we were there). She was so inhospitable that we didn't want to go near her when leaving, so we took our trash with us (the bins are apparently located near the RV area). You do not park directly at the listing. There is a parking area nearby, but since you can't drive on the grass, there is no way to get close to the campsite. Luckily since there wasn't anyone else there we were able to camp closer to the car. But we still had to carry our gear a little ways.
The listing says that you can have campfires, but there are no fire rings. So be sure to bring your own portable campfire (luckily it wasn't too cold at night for us), otherwise there is no safe way to have a campfire.
There is a shooting range nearby, but it didn't bother us since we got up early and left.
Overall, it served our purpose.
