This is the group camping spot at Fjellgård Ranch! This site has the best views of the mountains and river gorge and is in a beautiful open area. It has close proximity to outhouse and parking area.

Fjellgård Ranch is perched on a mountaintop overlooking the North Fork Cosumnes River Valley, with views looking East toward the Crystal Range, Pyramid Peak, and Desolation Wilderness. We have approx. 3 miles of trails to wander on, with beautiful, towering oaks and pines. This is only an open site, and no water or electricity is provided. Brand new outhouse is available for use. Site 1 is reserved for car camping, unless all others are booked. For sites 2-6, we ask that you unload your car in the unloading area close to the campsites, and park in the parking lot about 50 feet away. We'd like you and everyone to enjoy the pristine landscape and sweeping views without them being obstructed by vehicles.

We have a very quiet and peaceful homestead, with just nature sounds to enjoy. There is no noise from highways. However from time to time you will hear some power tools or occasional gunshots from distant neighbors target practicing. While our neighbors' houses are distant, our property borders on several others. Please respect our neighbors' property & privacy and never cross fence lines. We aim to create a peaceful, welcoming, and safe environment. We believe in diversity, inclusion, and equity for all people!

Visits to our goat herd, chickens, and guardian dog available upon request and appointment. All goats were bottle fed, lovingly raised, and like new friends! As our dog is a vigilant protector, we need to make sure proper introductions are made. She definitely wants to meet you! For this reason we do not allow other dogs on the property. All animals are kid friendly and like lots of pets and scratches.

Due to this year's heat and humidity in California, there are no campfires allowed at this time. Our area is covered with very dry brush and timber and a few embers can quickly become and out of control brush fire. We cannot accommodate anything except for self-contained propane grills or stoves. If you have any questions regarding this, or need further info, please let us know

If you are more into glamping, please check out our tent site #4 in our property listings.

There are easy drives to the Cosumnes River, Apple Hill, Shenandoah/Amador Wineries, Sly Park Recreation Area/Lake Jenkinson, American River, Oldtown Placerville, and South Lake Tahoe. Cosumnes River Gorge hosts a famous rock-climbing area, just 20 min away. There is a lot of Goldrush history sites and we can recommend some, upon request. Coloma, the historical town and site where gold was first discovered, is about 35 minutes away. There is no river access through our property.

What an amazing spot! I highly recommend #6! Jonesy and Marie were super helpful! My kids loved the goat tour! The hammock was also a sweet upgrade! It’s remote, and quiet but if you want more activities, There are swimming homes and town within 20 minutes. Really enjoyed our stay. Would absolutely return!

From this ridge crest watch the sunrise over the sierras and set into the central valley. Wonder with sheep/goats through shade of the oak trees. Breath in deep while staring up at the star filled sky.

This property is fantastic! We had our youth climbing team out for a weekend at Jonesy and Marie's and had a really great time. The sites are well-spaced, the outhouses are super-clean, and quite entertaining, and the distant rumbling of the river is absolutely serene. A plus for us, it's a quick drive to the Consumnes River Gorge, where the hiking and climbing are awesome. We'll be back for sure next year for more evenings around the fire and morning stretches in the treehouse!

We took our 4 y/o and 2 y/o and we had a blast. The view is gorgeous, the stars are incredible (we saw a ton of shooting stars!), and the site AND portable toilet were very clean. Hosts were available via text, very responsive, and super nice. We only stayed one night but we will absolutely be back!

The view from the trail!
