This 85 acre parcel sits just west of Nevada City, CA with the Deer Creek on our southern border and the Tribute Trail with the Newtown Canal on our northern border. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, It is a 10 minute drive to the quaint, historical gold rush town of Nevada City, and about 20-30 minutes by bicycle along the the Tribute Trail into town, or walk to the bridge that crosses the Deer Creek to a loop trail with lovely views and wooded scenery, about 1.5 hours there and back to the campground. The gorgeous South Fork of the Yuba River is a 15 minute drive away. Great hiking, biking and swimming opportunities abound in the surrounding Sierra Nevada Foothills. The Bowman Road is about 1 + hour's drive East on Hwy 20 to Lake Spaulding, the smaller Fuller and Rucker lakes and Bowman Lake, as well as the Grouse Ridge hiking area. Nevada City has great restaurants, bars, music and theater, as well as shopping and art galleries. We offer 4 tent platforms, as well as 4 RV parking sites. There are no hookups at this point, but there is a bathhouse with potable water, flush toilets and shower with warm water.

We loved camping here for a few nights! The platform was generously sized, big enough for our large tent, two chairs, and a small table. Super quiet and peaceful, with beautiful star gazing at night. We loved that our spot was shaded since it was over 100 degrees in the afternoon during our stay and the tent didn't get too hot. I especially appreciated the flush toilets, bathroom sink, and spacious shower with changing room. Very convenient location for access into town and to the Yuba for a swim!

Loren and Scott have made the perfect dreamy lily pad for sleeping under the stars. They were sweet, easy, and communicative - a great experience all around. We will definitely be back.

Loren's land is beautiful! She has a lovely setup for a few campsites with a clean and sweet bathroom/shower setup. There is a gorgeous and easily walkable trail to shops and restaurants of Nevada City along Deer creek. I would definitely return.

This is a beautiful and peaceful place to camp. The site had everything we needed, and the shower was a treat. Be sure to go for a hike along the canal.

Best spot to camp in the area !
I absolutely loved this enchanting place to park my 32’ bus. The owner were very welcoming, kind and helpful. There’s a beautiful creek a few minutes away where I loves taking my morning walks. Easy access to Nevada city. Very quiet and peaceful !
