PLEASE TAKE NOTE: THERE ARE 2 DIFFERENT CAMPGROUNDS AT 2 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS ON FOLSOM LAKE: ONE LOCATION IS BEALS POINT CAMPGROUND IN GRANITE BAY. (HAS BOTH BASIC AND LUXURY GLAMPING) THE 2ND LOCATION IS PENINSULA CAMPGROUND IN PILOT HILL (ONLY HAS BASIC GLAMPING) Located at the base of the Sierra foothills, the lake and recreation area offers opportunities for hiking, biking, running, camping, picnicking, horseback riding, water-skiing and boating. Fishing offers trout, catfish, big and small mouth bass or perch. Visitors can also see the Folsom Powerhouse (once called "the greatest operative electrical plant on the American continent"), which from 1885 to 1952 produced 11,000 volts of electricity for Sacramento residents. For cyclists, there is a 32-mile long bicycle path at Beals Point that connects Folsom Lake with many Sacramento County parks before reaching Old Sacramento. The park also includes Lake Natoma, downstream from Folsom Lake, which is popular for crew races, sailing, kayaking and other aquatic sports. At both locations, you will stay in 16ft deluxe tents. Each tent has 2 full beds in them. At Beals Point we offer "Luxury" Glamping with real furniture, cozy bedding, and all the amenities you need for a relaxing and fun filled stay for up to 8 people (AT BEALS POINT ONLY!). At both Beals Point and Peninsula, we also offer "Basic" Glamping, where we bring the tent and mattresses, and you bring the rest. This means that you need to bring your own sheets, pillows, sleeping bags, blankets and other camping essentials. Close by the sites are public restrooms with running water, drinking water, and showers. Hiking trails are found all around at both locations. At Beals Point you can rent kayaks, visit the snack bar, or take a dip in the lake- whatever suits your needs can be found close by!

Fun for the family!
A well-appointed space! Everything that you need is provided including power generators, potable water steps away and a waste disposal on site. A cute area with a nearby lake great for kids and a ranger presentation that was enjoyed by the whole family. A little loud due to motorcycles passing on the highway, but otherwise a pleasant and memorable trip.

Glamping at Folsom Lake Site #20
Easier than a trip to Tahoe
Easy to find location right after the entrance. Plenty of parking. Spacious tent. We were in #1 which is close to the road so there is some noise but not too bad. Very large bed is on a slight downhill angle and I wished it was more leveled out. The Lake area seems abit worn out but overall it’s a nice location, easy trip to the store, short walk to the main park area and bathrooms. Electricity was hard to come by and the only location were a few of the more distant bathrooms. Watch out for the squirrels. They’ll eat anything including flip flops!

Great time Glampijgn
Had a wonderful time with the family glamping! Beds were super comfortable, and we loved the games too. Really appreciated having cooking gear also. We loved it and hope to be back! Super close to historic Folsom which was cool to, and walking distance to Granite Bay lake area. Highly recommend!

Quick trip with my son
Two nights (in August) at this site. Everything was great. The tent was huge, and all the necessities were provided and more. Not too much road noise from Folsom blvd. Since we were staying over weeknights, very few campsites were occupied, so it was very quiet at night. The nearby restrooms and showers were clean and well-maintained. Communication with the host was easy and responsive. Would definitely stay again. The lake is about a 5 minute walk, a little further to the swimming beach.

Amazing location, would visit again
Super comfortable, great campsite, tons of amenities. Host went above and beyond to make things available for us. They were always available and quickly responded to questions. It was a super hot weekend and one of the provided power tanks did not have charge, but the host quickly had it replaced. They provided fans to which was a blessing during this weekend. Would love to visit again!
