Sierra Escape at Camp Schmac

1 site · RV, Tent5 acres · El Dorado
Welcome yourself to our slice of heaven in the Sierra Foothills and a perfect PIT STOP on your way to Tahoe. Camp Schmac (pronounced ssshhh, MACK.. a combination of our last names that stuck when we first got married 🤣) Pull yourself in for a night or two among the pines and oaks to admire our clear night sky paired with perfectly fresh air. We're a family operated, private campground available for guests year-round! Nestled at 3,000 ft elevation, our property sits right below the regular snow line and can have light to moderate snow during the winter, and then beautiful greenery and wildflowers springing during Feb-May months. Summer months make for a perfect time to dip into the Consumnes River or Sly Park lake. Make sure to bring shade with you! Minutes from wineries, and a hop skip and a jump to Apple Hill, our property makes the perfect place to stay for the weekend, or pit stop on your way to South Lake Tahoe. Pull-in to your graveled spot, complete with a fire pit and solar string lights that come on at dusk and enjoy relaxing in the quiet of the pine trees. We're happy to assist you as much as you need or stay out of your way as much as you desire! STRICT QUEIT HOURS: 10pm-7am please :) Although our property feels secluded, we have neighbors to respect a few acres away. Enjoy hanging around our "Stump" leaning bar, with a complete hospitality shed coming SOON! Firewood available upon request at times of the year when burning is allowed. Our first bundle is complimentary, and each bundle is $6 after that. Propane stoves OK year-round. The closest trail to hike near us is the Consumnes River Gorge, a beautiful day hike where you can watch rock climbers and high liners or jump in for a climb yourself. (Our spot is also a perfect destination for climbers to stay and pull-in for a quiet safe spot, well off the main road). Grab a BBQ dinner at our favorite local spot, The Grizzly Den, book a tasting at our favorite winery, Saluti Cellars (Only a 9 min drive from your campsite), or enjoy Sly Park Recreation Area for a day outing. Lots to enjoy in our neck of the woods!

Cosumnes River Somerset Camp

9 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents23 acres · Grizzly Flats, El Dorado
This land was home to the Miwok, then European and Chinese miners, then a cattle rancher. It was also home to a former nun who quit the dominican order to purchase this land for inner city kids to have a chance to ride, swim, hike and fish. There is NOTHING like being in the wilderness of this area for a good re-centering of the soul! We feel certain you will not be disappointed with this beautiful river canyon. Our property is situated right on the middle fork cosumnes river. We have 2 sleeping cabins and several tent sites (can be rented separately). The cabins offers a rustic/minimalist type vibe - bring your own bedding/pillows to sleep on the comfy futon. A table and chairs are provided for the cabins. Tent sites have a wood table (bring your camp chairs) and a fire pit. The swimming is awesome and tons of hiking. Many family owned wineries in the area, most of them offering free tasting. It’s a short drive to Tahoe and the Marshall gold discovery site as well as the historic hangtown Placerville. The recent Caldor Fire was VERY close to our property and a back burn was initiated nearby the cabins. It is still as beautiful as ever but please know there are lots of slash piles. Falling trees and burned up stump holes are also a risk and it is presumed campers will be cautious and at their own risk.

26 sites · Lodging80 acres · Somerset, El Dorado

We dreamed of living on an Alaskan TV show but fell in love with this forest getaway. Come play in the creek and hike miles of trails through giant mossy oaks and house sized granite boulders. Our farm is home to a whole family of animals and a great foundation for learning techniques to grow your own dreams. We offer campstites, a yurt, and a cabin - so please review listings for specific amenity information.A stream runs Jan. - July but there are plenty of local spots full of rivers, lakes, and all the wine you can drink :) ask for recommendations after booking! Our fire pits have all been replaced with propane fire rings as camp fires are illegal in our area from June thru November. We have also provide enough propane for your stay :)Our guests love it here: "The yurt was so cozy and stocked with everything wr could possibly need.

Atticus Woods

4 sites · Lodging, Tents5 acres · Fiddletown, Amador
Atticus Woods sits on a sunny hilltop that is 5 acres of peace and quiet. The land is gently sloping, rolling hills and has pathways to enjoy all the views. The terrain make for easy hiking, family friendly hangouts with a variety of cedar, oaks, manzanita and pines. Accommodations Atticus Woods offers tent camping with accommodations that include, a lovely outdoor shower that offers hot water in the mornings and cool rinse off in the afternoons. We have an outhouse with a composting toilet, sink and privacy. Each campsite has its own water spigot as well as a campfire positioned close to the water for safety. If you need a barbecue we 3 mini weber for the tabletop and a full-size weber offered as a first come first serve free rental. The coals, lighter fluid and little fire starter logs are also available for purchase. Firewood Atticus Woods has 5 + acres of woods and meadow. The trees will drop branches during storms, giving lots of good firewood for your campfire. We cut and stack wood for the house, but there's more than we need. So, as long as it lasts, firewood found on the property is free while you are staying with us. Campers enjoy the walks around the property to collect wood for their fire and kindling for a starter. I do have heavy, seasoned oak rounds for purchase if you are not interested in collecting wood and would like something that will burn for a long time. In addition, I have fire starter logs for purchase as well. Please reach out to host if you need to purchase. Campfires and Fire Circles Camping just isn't the same without a campfire. We agree. But, this is a highly dangerous area with most of the year out of the question, unless the campfire is positioned next to a water source. So, we have prioritized this and made each campsite complete with a water spigot next to the campfire, allowing campfires most of the year. But, one of the best things about Camp Atticus is the communal fire circles created to encourage community and give options for larger groups. Our Communal Fire Circle is perfectly suited for potty reading, spoken word and for discussions led by host or a guest speaker. We are excited to offer a celebration of the arts as the foundation of Atticus Woods Campgrounds. Getting around Once making your way up the long driveway, detailed instructions follow, you will notice the signs pointing to the campsites. I have a map located at the main sign next to the large fire circle (behind the sign, resting between the sign and the boulder). The main trail winds around the 3 campsites and continues to the Shower/Outhouse. We find the dark skies to be exhilarating, but we have lit up the trails to help you find your way. The entire property glows at night with solar string lights high in the trees helping you find your way, its kind of magical. The private acreage has its own entrance to El Dorado National Forest with 1000's of acres of wild that provides views as far as the eye can see. This visual freedom allows the start of your "reset" as you stay here and connect with nature. Atticus Woods was created to bring people together with nature's beauty, open skies and the quiet stillness found here. The campsites are clustered around a communal space giving privacy and community as well. The communal spaces are located in 3 separate parts of the property, giving you options to spread out, be alone, explore and always have a space close by to sit back and take it all in. Multiple fire circles (3) offer opportunity for meetings of minds under starry night skies as well as provide a place to be solo or to be quiet (even when fully booked). We really like that. Atticus woods is also a project that is experimenting in an offering of live music, art and guest speakers. These seem to be a natural progression. But first and foremost, the property is opening up to Hipcampers wanting to re-set and connect with mother nature. Directions to the Campsites: Once you arrive to the property you will first take a long driveway that curves around to the top of the hillside. Keep in mind that you will not be able to see anything upon turning up the driveway. Actually, you will not see anything until after driving through the gate located about 3/4 of the way up. You will see a home on your left and the deep canyon of the national forest on your right. There's fencing around the home that is about 2 acres. Most of this area is meant only for the home's privacy except for the circular drive in front of the home. This circular drive has a communal pure pit in the middle of it and can be enjoyed by all. Beyond the communal fire pit, we ask that you respectfully keep a privacy boundary for the home's surrounding acreage. You will, of course, be driving through on your way to the campsites. Atticus Woods campsites are located at the top of the hill on the far end of the property as well as the communal fire pit areas along the way. Keep in mind that there are maps available at the rock with a sign that says, "Atticus Woods Camp" and an arrow pointing to the renovation area. Please return when you are no longer using so other guests can use them too. Check between the rock and the sign for this very handy map that will give a much better understanding of where you are going! Take the road past the Airstream Renovation area and the tractor barn. Finally you will come to the water holding tank on your left and the well house on your right, these markers are just before you reach the campsites. Keep following the pathway or dirt road (yes, you may drive your vehicle)to the top of the hill that will open up to a sunny clearing with a fire pit, tables, barbecues and lots of firewood. The right hand side is a communal area for all to use, first come first serve for the Weber Barbecues, as well as firewood. On your right hand side you will see campsite "A." This is the first site and marks the beginning of the upper camping area. If you follow This pathway, you will see campsite "B", Campsite "C" as well. The trail will end at the outdoor shower/compost toilet providing hot and cold water from our 300' deep well. Each site provides a shady respite with semi leveled ground that has been cleared with care and has a soft base of decomposed granite . A fresh water spigot is located in each site along with a small campfire ring and a string of solar lights. All the trails have been cleared of poison oak and have been lit with solar motion detected lights to help you find your way in the dark of the night. The campgrounds look spectacular at night, they actually have a warm glow and its a blast when the different communal areas have a roaring fire and marshmallows, beverages and good conversations! A Thank You I am so grateful for the opportunity to host Hipcampers. This has allowed me to continue land ownership by offsetting high costs in California. The unexpected bonus is how much fun it can be. This is better than I imagined and I appreciate every camper. Come to Atticus Woods and experience the California foothill's gold country and party in the woods on my gorgeous piece of earth!

Hang out with our goats, sheep, dogs, chickens, guineas, and ducks during the day! Plus 2 miles of beautiful wilderness trails. Our site is close to many attractions in the area.

And of course, the ever-popular Lake Tahoe is 1 hour North-East on Hwy 50. We aim to create a peaceful, welcoming, and safe environment. We believe in diversity, inclusion, and equity for all people! PLEASE NOTE before you book: - Please book all extras through the Hipcamp App. If you decide later to add on anything after arrival, you can change your reservation to reflect. - We cannot accommodate camping vehicles larger than 20 feet and trailers. We have a very small turnaround and it is difficult to maneuver larger vehicles and trailers in these areas. Site #1 is the only site that you can park at with a vehicle within the site. - Refunds are honored if you cancel before 72 hours prior to your check-in time. If your reservation starts at 2pm on Friday, you will need to cancel by 2pm on Tuesday. We do not refund for late cancellations due to unfavorable weather. Please do your diligence by checking weather reports early and cancel early if you believe you will not want to camp in those conditions. - Because we are in a natural mountain environment, we do have to deal with pests from time to time. During hotter months, bees, ants, and wasps will often frequent our campsites, attracted by food. We do what we can to keep them away, but mid-Summer months especially are more difficult. If you feel like this will bother you, please consider booking with us Fall through Spring.
