City Camp

1 site · RV1 acre · Sacramento, CA
My lot is 50' x 200' with a private, fenced back yard on a corner lot. It has a full bathroom outside, patio, fire pit, and full RV Hookup for one Camping van or small motorhome. This site is close to UC Davis and Shriners Hospital in the heart of Sacramento. You can bike everywhere, walk to restaurants and local pubs. It's a great location, likely smaller than other listings but a perfect place to City Camp. Guests are welcome to pick whatever is growing in my edible garden.

Kimball Farm

2 sites · Lodging20 acres · Woodland, CA
Welcome to Kimball Farm! We have cultivated our family farm to be a sanctuary - a place for people to feel the love of the earth, and what it has to offer us. Spectacular skies surround the farm, with roaming chickens, crowing roosters and vegetables, medicinal herbs, and fruits growing - a living model of what is beautiful AND possible in life. The cozy TeePee has a vibe of its own, and sits beside a sweet, peaceful pond, outdoor sitting area, and fire pit. There is plenty of room for additional tents and RV's. The convenience of accessible electricity, running toilets, hot water shower, gas grill and an additional covered sitting area make your camping adventure that much more comfortable. Super convenient to get here! We're less than 20 miles from the Sacramento Airport, and just a few minutes off of Interstate 5. Yet you'd never know it once you get to the farm and feel the peace and quiet. We're looking forward to seeing you soon! Additional note....Life on the farm is calm, peaceful and easy... operating with the natural rhythm of the sun cycle. What few clocks we do have, are stuck on twenty minutes past four. We are also family and kid friendly. Please private message us with any questions you may have, or if you would like additional information. We are also home wine makers. If you would like a tour of the cellar along with tasting please let me know. Please know that although the teepee provides some shelter from the elements it is not a house. This is still camping and you will be subject to the elements of Mother Nature. Hot, cold, rain, wind, dirt, dust, mud and different animal sounds during the night. When you are here you may see frogs, toads, lizards, snakes (none poisonous) ants, turtles, squirrels, etc.. Those of you who have experienced camping before know that these are all normal things when out in nature but for those of you who have no camping experience I ask you to come with an open mind and a positive attitude towards a new experience. If you think you may have problems with any of these things PLEASE DON'T COME!!! We also have a dog named Sara that loves people. Most campers that come are very happy to have her around. She is polite and good with children. Some of you may not like dogs, if that is the case this will not be a fun experience for you. Please note that as of spring 2021 we no longer have as many animals. Because of the drought feed prices are too high.

Hirst Horse Ranch

7 sites · RVs, Tents10 acres · Clay, CA
Instagram: HirstRanch TikTok: HirstRanch The price of camping includes any of the following Farm/Ranch experiences you (and any children) would like to do: joining us for feeding animals, collecting eggs, helping to milk the cow. Our property is great for children! We have a trampoline, a tree house, a large livestock water trough that we use as a kiddie pool in summer, a great swing set, and room to play. We live on a quiet 10 acre property with trees that provide some shade, and all of our sites are near the horse pastures. You might hear horses nickering and our cows calling. There is lots of room to walk or run around. A large sandbox and Treehouse are available for kids to play in, plus we have a 17 foot high swing for kids and adults alike! You can walk the property to observe the horses, or sign up for a special horse, tractor, or welding "experience." Come camp in a very quiet and safe horse and farming area. We are near the end of a dead-end road. Our camping sites are somewhat private, some with more shade and others with more mid-day sun. We specialize in "Horse Experiences" tailored to your level of comfort and needs. None of the horse experiences listed on our site require any prior experience with horses. We will make sure you are safe and comfortable while working with the horses. *NOTE: Experiences are not available on Sundays (our sabbath day). We can fit them in on Saturday afternoon/evening for Saturday-night campers, or Monday morning for Sunday-night campers. A cute little shed-barn has a flush toilet and shower (bring your own towels) for your use. Since we only have 1 restroom, on busy weekends we ask guests to avoid using the shower. Summertime brings hot days and (usually) cool nights to our area. It is not uncommon to experience 100 degree days in June, July and August. Most evenings cool down, thanks to the Delta Breeze, to around 60-70 degrees overnight. Wintertime brings cooler daytime temps (50-60 degrees) and colder night temps (30-40 degrees). We are located about 10 minutes from the Galt area, which has a large variety of Fast-food, as well as several nicer restaurants. There is also a Wal-Mart (with groceries) and a nice Supermarket. We are about 6 miles from 2 country stores in Herald and Wilton (with gas station and Mexican restaurant). Sites accommodate up to 6 people, and you can add up to 2 more for an additional fee. If you need more than 8 people, then consider booking 2 or more sites.

Camping near Sacramento guide

Overview

Calling all campers to California’s capital for water, wilderness, and redwood trees. Historically known for California’s gold rush, Sacramento is now filled with a beautiful blend of cityscapes and nature nooks. With San Francisco sitting southwest and Sierra Nevada to the east, the city provides a central location for day trips and weekend camping excursions to lush landscapes like Eldorado National Forest. Or head to the coast of Point Reyes National Seashore to explore cliffs, sand dunes, and tidepools. Then, venture out to Samuel P. Taylor State Park where trails weave through native redwood trees. Choose from campsites on beautiful beaches or under a canopy of trees—the opportunities are endless in Sacramento.

Where to go

Eldorado National Forest

Escape to Eldorado National Forest to explore lakes, canyons, mountains, and trees. Set about 60 miles east of Sacramento in Sierra Nevada, the forest also hosts over 50 developed campgrounds throughout its diverse landscapes. Then, bike, boat, or rock climb along the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Eldorado campers can explore natural attractions with ease from campsites, glampsites, cabin rentals, and more. With forty campgrounds to choose from, Eldorado National Forest offers lakeside camping with boat launches, full hookups, fire pits, picnic tables, and potable water.

Point Reyes National Seashore

Head to the coast at Point Reyes National Seashore featuring dozens of beaches and Pacific Ocean views. Nestled north of San Francisco, the shoreline stretches for 80 miles. Campers can explore its diverse coastal features including cliffs, sand dunes, and tidepools. The Point Reyes Lighthouse is a must for history lovers and boat watchers too. Then, spend the night—the seashore offers boat-in and hike-in backcountry camping on-site. Cabin rentals, tent sites, and RV parks with full hookups are also nearby.

Samuel P. Taylor State Park

Slip away to Samuel P. Taylor State Park—just seven minutes inland from Point Reyes. Tree-covered trails weave through the area full of towering redwoods and old growth. Highly sought after campsites and cabin rentals in the park offer a cozy stay near the shoreline. Campers can also expect hot showers, potable water, and fire rings, though there aren’t any sites with RV hookups. After setting up camp, hike or bike the Cross Marin Trail, which leads explorers along Lagunitas Creek, the old North Pacific Coast Railroad, and into Golden Gate Recreation Area.

When to go

Sacramento’s mediterranean climate creates suitable camping conditions year-round. The coastal breeze brings warm summers and mild winters. Summers see average highs above 90°F—sunscreen and hydration are a must. Temperatures begin to cool down from November to March with temperatures dropping to the mid 50s or low 60s during the day and 40°F overnight. Campers can enjoy the quieter times of the changing seasons with springtime blooms and fall foliage as well.
