If you’re looking for a quiet getaway with a few close friends or your family, this option is for you. Tucked in along the South Fork of the American River, this beautiful campsite features picnic benches, a propane fire pit with propane included (fire pits help prevent wildfires), and a prep table for fixing up those tasty fireside meals. Guests also have access to shared bathroom facilities (and yes, there are showers!), volleyball, ping pong, communal benches, a sink and dishwashing station, and a common swimming area along the river. Most sites are within a very short walking distance to the banks of the South Fork of the American River, this place is ideal for anyone interested in experiencing the beauty of the foothills and the rush of the river. We offer both tent and RV sites. Each RV site includes its own picnic table, water and (30Amp) power hookups. Guests will also have access to our volleyball court, ping pong, communal benches, and a common area with a sink and dishwashing station. Additionally, you can access the swim area and go for a dip to cool off on a hot day. If you're looking to steal some time away to reconnect and camp, this is the place for you. People of all ages can camp out, swim, and play. We offer toilets, showers, trash disposal, potable water and more depending on the site you chose. Pets are allowed as well. Enjoy biking, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, paddling, climbing, swimming, whitewater rafting, and wildlife watching all nearby, or on site.

Larry RV Site
Very well kept and thought out property. The sites are all clean and well maintained. Water/sinks and the bathrooms were also very clean. The little stretch of river on the property is really lovely, and the walk-in sites get quite close to the river. Would definitely stay here again in the future!

Oak Tent Site
We love the camping area and how close it is to the river. It is very clean, kids friendly place. The only downside is the bathroom area is a bit far for the kids to walk to. Also there are a lot of mosquito around. Bring your insect repellent. Overall I would come again.

We had a problem with our propane stove and she was Soo helpful in solving the problem she's a life saver. We will definitely return to stay at one of their many sites on the property.

We LOVED our stay! It was very peaceful and serene. The grounds are very clean and our site was spacious. I had a few questions and Kris responded immediately. A short walk takes you to an absolutely beautiful, private little beach. If you enjoy reconnecting with nature and nourishing your soul, this little gem is for you. We have added this great find to our "annual must return" list!
