Full Hookup RV/Camper Site
We absolutely loved Gold River Camp! It was super cute and cozy. Nice peaceful & quiet. We rented their only RV spot and had a blast! The owners are super sweet & helpful. Love the swings and porches they made beside the river. Very relaxing! Definitely wanting to come back and bring some of our family & friends! 💙

Riverfront Tent Site (Primitive)
It rained pretty much the whole time I was there, so it was really nice to be in a place where I could still hangout and not be trapped in my tent. Would love to go back and enjoy it more!

Riverfront Tent Site (Primitive)
Little slice of heaven!
The host provided great directions, and a map which was great! While these sites were just off from the rest of the cabins and glamping tents providing privacy it was super close to parking & the bath house and other common areas, there was a picnic table & firepit. We were staying in a cabin, but used this site to set up for our anniversary dinner & it was magic down by the river! I would Have slept like a baby had I been sleeping here! As mentioned in previous reviews, the site is meticulously kept! There is also a place to purchase forgotten items, or things like ice cream payable by cash or app. Love this place and already booked to come back with my daughter!
