Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is great for families and kids.
Set up camp and relax in one of our private manzanita surrounded tent sites. A short three min walk to our cobble beach along the beautiful South Fork America River will keep you cool during this hot summer. Or use our sites as a base camp for the many hiking and biking trails in the area. Taste some local wines at one of the many wineries or grab a growler at a nearby brewery. Propane fire pits are provided for your stay at your camp site, with one tank of propane included for your use... Because what is camping without looking at a fire and roasting marshmallows? Our fire pits sure help add to that *camping feel* but COOKING OVER FIRE PITS (OTHER THAN S'MORES) IS NOT PERMITTED, so please plan to bring your own camp stove or preferred camp-cooking appliances and the required fuel. We look forward to your stay with us! FAQ: What should I bring? For our standard tent or RV sites, the sites include a picnic table and a propane fire pit with propane for heating/ambiance only. You should plan to pack everything you would usually expect to bring with you to a typical Forest Service or State Park campground... For example: propane camp stove or equivalent with your own propane/fuel for cooking, extra tables for your personal camp set-up needs, shade tents or pop-ups, games or camp activities, camp cots/pads/air mattresses, camping bedding, tents, camp chairs, etc. We are happy to answer any question you may have!

CAMPER BEWARE!!
The land was very pretty, but I resent paying for a site advertised as having certain amenities when, in fact, it didn't. I paid extra to have a site with a propane fire pit. I had been in contact with the owner about arriving and getting an orientation to the camp; he was very timely in responding. He told me that he was about to close camp for the season and that he had been called away and could not meet me there. He said I would be the only camper there and that he would leave the gate open to the camp. When I arrived the pit was there, but not the propane. The following day I messaged him to ask if I was getting the propane I paid for and to tell him I expected a partial refund for the previous night or double that if I didn't get propane for the 2nd night either. Late that afternoon a caretaker for a neighboring campground came by with the propane and helped me get it going. This person told me that the owner had gone to drive cattle - another family business. The owner never responded to my message about a refund - pure silence. I guess he only wants to talk to people when they are putting money in his pocket. I sent a complaint to HipCamp and they say he refused to issue any refund. I have zero respect for anyone who willingly cheats people. So CAMPER BEWARE - maybe you'll get what you pay for or maybe he will cheat you. Maybe at the end of the season he doesn't care about treating his last customer fairly. Glad I'm not him.

This was a phenomenal trip. Matt was accommodating and incredibly nice. We stayed in campground 5, and despite the family in campground 6 having, in their words, 'a dance party,' we could barely hear them and slept well to the sound on the nearby South Fork of the American. Our site had a bench/table, propane fire pit for S'mores, well cleared flat area for the tent and a close by spot for the car that was far enough I couldn't see it (sweet spot, as far as I'm concerned). There was a nearby running water toilet by the hose bib for portable water, in addition to closer by port-a-poties. In other words the perfect setup for a car camping trip with the kids. I would recommend staying here, and my 7 y/o has already asked to return.

Awesome spot
Very nice spot next to the river. The provided canvas tent was great. The Propane fire pit was a awesome bonus.

Matt's place on the American River was fabulous. Matt met us at the site and couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. There were six of us in our camping site and it was spacious and lovely. We appreciated the super clean restrooms, and the propane campfires were a special treat. This was our first Hipcamp experience, and it was excellent. Thank you, Matt.
