The hosts were very informative and friendly. The camping spot was spacious and clean. They think of every detail and are so accommodating. A great spot to be close to Columbia and Sonora area. We were able to dump our trailers holding tanks at Quarry RV near Columbia before heading home. We highly recommend this site.

Graet 2 site camping!
Great camping site close to Columbia State Park. We reserved both sites and had plenty of room for two travel trailers (22 and 26 feet) plus the tow vehicles. The site has a very nice picnic table with umbrella, fire pit, Briquette BBQ, and beautiful lighting throughout. Plenty of games are also provided: horse shoes, cornhole and card games. Both sites are very private and surrounded by trees and boulders. Close to the local Columbia airport so you will hear some aircraft noise, but it is not overly intrusive and quiet at night.

Great place to stay! Super clean, immaculately cared for, easy to get to, and a great host. Conveniently located for use as a base camp while exploring Sonora, Columbia, Angels Camp, Murphys, and more. My wife and I stayed 3 nights. We enjoyed so much that we’re eager to return for another stay.

What a Delight!
Everything you need for camping while surrounded by the land's natural elements. You could tell that Julie is an experienced camper because she has thought of everything: comfort, relaxation and fun. We stayed here, and it was hot, but sitting over by the rocks, there was a cool breeze. It was terrific to be cooled down by nature's wonders. There were games to play and places to see only 15-20 minutes away. I must mention that you are only walking distance to the best breakfast place, Mandys, and walking distance to the Columbia State Park which takes you back to the 1800s. Julie is welcoming and helpful. She provides you with a welcome package that is informative and educational. We will definitely be back.
