Flyte and Sparrow
12 sites · RVs, Tents96 acres · Reno, CAWhen you come to camp here you are on a working farm in transition. Girlfarm has been a local food go to for restaurants, farm family members, and regenerative agriculture interests. Today, the farm is looking forward to a new course in agritourism as we begin planning walking gardens, art installations in the landscape, and interactive classes. It was important to choose a partner like Hipcamp to invite like minded individuals who respect both the natural environment and the idea of less is more. At any time you may encounter farming activities, building out of tiny houses for future bookings, or gardens in the process of creation. As we move toward offering the land as a place to both find solitude or chosen participation our Flyte and Sparrow experience will hopefully be a place you will want to return to as your own tradition.

River Haven
8 sites · Lodging2 acres · Sierra City, CARiver Haven offers the sound of water cascading over rocks to surround you. There is an incredible panoramic river view of sparkling deep blue waters. A beautiful year-round creek that dances down the slope, right next to the house. You can enjoy a lovely private swimming hole with inviting perches for hours of glorious sun bathing. River Haven includes majestic views of nature. Sierra City is located in the heart of the Northern Sierra Nevada. It remains today much as it was 100 years ago when miners worked the rivers and the mountains. The river runs free and the forests and meadows wrap their beauty around mountains that remain undeveloped. There is wonder and beauty at every turn.Every guest will be able to enjoy the gardens, the river, and the picnic tables all over the property.

Madrone Tree Hill
35 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents50 acres · CACamp under the stars in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. This 50-acre family-owned property is located in the heart of Apple Hill. There are two streams that run through it, with a hill that separates them. It is a working Christmas tree farm that was started in the 1960s and now has many trees that are too big to fit in anyone's home but provide an unbelievable canopy for some of our campsites. Half the property is covered in a pine forest (with some secluded campsites) with the balance being Christmas trees, Manzanita brush, Madrone trees, and open areas (for larger group campers). There are trails throughout the property for visitors to enjoy. There is an Apple Farm across the street that makes the best donuts in Apple Hill! Less than a mile away is a farm brewery and there are wineries throughout the area. There is also a large lake nearby that is a favorite for local kayak and canoe enthusiasts (and some who enjoy fishing) since most non-locals don't know it exists.   As kids, my sister, brother and I all planted Christmas trees here. We planted and pruned trees for our father and never really appreciated the beauty of the property since all this place represented to us was work! (Unbeknownst to us, my Dad gave up the farm after a few years because he realized it took up too much family time.) Because of this attitude, I never even explored the property until about 10 years ago, 30+ years after the first Christmas tree had been planted. After doing so, I realized how diverse it was and what a gem it is since it is located right in the heart of Apple Hill with so many things to explore that are in the area. My Dad passed away in 2017 and I want to share what he started so that others can enjoy the beauty of what this area has to offer. Cheers to you Dad!

Cosumnes River Somerset Camp
5 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents23 acres · CAThis 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. We back up to several hundred acres of public land along the middle fork. We have one sleeping cabin and two tent site developed at this time (can be rented separately). The cabin offers a rustic/minimalist type vibe - bring your own bedding/pillows to sleep on the comfy futon. A table is provided outside and most people bring their camping chairs. The swimming is awesome and tons of hiking. Many family owned wineries in the area, most of them offering free tasting. 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 cabin. It is still as beautiful as ever but please know there are lots of slash piles, ash and soot nearby. Falling trees and burning stump holes are also a risk and it is presumed campers will be cautious when in the forrest. We offer 2 cabins, and have 5 camp sites at this time.

Camp Nauvoo
19 sites · Lodging, Tents86 acres · Placerville, CACamp Nauvoo was originally bought by the LDS church in the 1960's for a girl's camp. The camp was owned by the Boy Scouts from 2011-2015. The Rose family bought the property in 2016 with the intent to continue the tradition of tent camping as well as creating opportunities for exclusive events i.e., group/family reunions, weddings and corporate events. We are a small privately owned small campground (19 sites only) located on the outskirts of Placerville. The property features 86.5 secluded Tahoe like acres with beautiful year-round Weber Creek. The camp sites are placed along the creek or the bluff overlooking the creek. We have traditional dirt camping, canvas tents on platforms, teepees and glamping tents for those that want the comforts of home. We are tent camping only with only one site that allows a small travel trailer or van. (#14) . We are dog friendly and allow dogs in all but 5 glamping sites. We do enforce camp rules especially our quiet time between 10 PM and 7 AM (please review). We’ve been told that we have a “family camp” vibe. We are a great place for families wanting a safe environment for their kids but also several group sites for those that want to hang out together with multiple families. We are also a great base site for those wilderness enthusiasts with access to all the El Dorado National Forest including Desolation but want a hot shower at the end of the day. We have a lodge that is stocked with games and a ping pong table. The lodge has a microwave, Keurig machine and a hot water kettle for those hot drinks (BYO Cups).We have several tables set up for those that want to eat inside as well as multiple picnic tables along the side of the lodge with overhead protection. We have electricity at the at the lodge for small appliances and charging phones. We have a compressor on site to blow up your air mattresses or float toys. We’ve been told that our bathrooms are the “cleanest” ever and have changing tables and diaper pails. We offer nice flushing toilets and hot showers! For outdoor activities we have basketball, volleyball, pickleball and cornhole not to mention the playground with swing sets, seesaw and tractor play. We have hiking trails throughout the property. Our highlight is a camp fire bowl with bench seating with a stage to display camper talent which is perfect for the evening fire and roasting s’mores (bring the fixings). The creek starts out in spring looking like a rushing river featuring many fishing and swimming holes. As the summer progresses the water level falls but is still great for water play and fishing. We have propane BBQs (we provide the propane for BBQs) located throughout the property. We also have a propane grill and charcoal BBQ located in the common area for all to use. There is a dutch oven pit also in the fire bowl area. We do not allow wood fires at the individual sites but each site has a propane firepit for ambiance (not cooking) that requires you to purchase a 20 lb. propane cannister on site (add in extras) or pay cash on site. We require a 3 night minimum for the major holidays - Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. We do not do checkins on Sunday but do allow camping over Sunday night. We do exclusive events so you may need to explore multiple weekends to find the right reservation. We are located in the foothills so we are a short hop to many local attractions that include river rafting, gold mines, wineries and historical towns with great eating establishments. Tahoe is less than an hour away and there a many hiking trails within 20-30 minutes. We have a limited number of items to rent i.e, tents, cots, camp stoves, etc. We also have a small store on site for those items you forgot and a good selection of ice cream. We take venmo or cash. CHECKIN IS BETWEEN 4 AND 8. IF YOU ARE COMING FROM THE BAY ALLOW 4 HOURS - YOU MUST LEAVE BY 3:00 IN ORDER TO ARRIVE DURING CHECKIN.
