Great site, right next to the little beach at the riverfront. The only challenge was with how far away the bathroom was for our toddler!

Had an incredible time at The Cover camping ground by the river. Baptized myself and feeling renewed after falling asleep to the sounds of the river and waking up to the birds at sunrise. Beautiful stars at night and cute animals to watch during the day. Will definitely be back!!

It was a beautiful campsite. Everything I could ask for and more. At the river campsite we had lots of privacy which was amazing. We loved hearing the river at night. We appreciated kris and her husband, I believe, checking in on us and asking if we had any questions. The propane fire pit was perfect for nighttime conversaciones. We had lots of fun swimming in the river and laying in the sand. The showers were clean and it was easy to find the perfect temperature of water to shower in. We apréciate the kitchen stoves and places to wash dishes at. We also loved playing with the ping pong table! Would definitely come back and stay for longer! I highly recommend this campsite to people who love staying by the water and who love somewhat hot climate.

This place is great! The river campsite has excellent access to the river and is still pretty private. The shade structures and propane fire pits are actually great! No mucking about with firewood. There is a little bit of a walk from the car to the site but there are some little carts to help carry your things.

The South fork of the American river is beautifulPropane fire pits are great for keeping the area safer from wildfires. The little beach by the river campsite.

Beautiful, secluded spot where the sound of the river lulled us to sleep at night. This site in particular was nice and far from other sites and next to a nice little beach. The firepit was easy to use and a nice touch, and we appreciated the clean bathrooms and hot showers! Also nice to have the ping pong and corn hole to play as well with lots of options for shade.

The campsite was great, the extra canopy came in handy when it rained one day. The sites where amazing and super fun. Our dogs loved it. The propane fire pit was awesome puts out lots of heat and light but no smelly clothes. Highly recommend
