Recently renovated, you'll find a sparkling clean bath house, community and private fire pits, a covered pavilion, and of course the relaxing river with gold panning equipment available to all guests. Gold River is the perfect base camp for your adventures; with dozens of activities within 30 minutes, you won't be short of entertaining options to choose from.

Riverfront Tent Site (Primitive)
First time hipcampers… 10/10
We really enjoyed tent camping at one of the four spots! The bathrooms were super clean and amenities were very nice. We didn’t use the grill or kitchen area, but plan to when we come back for another stay!

Bell Tent Camping - Tent Included
Beautiful property
This is a beautiful space with lovely, thoughtful amenities. The entire property is welcoming and clean. There is a significant amount of road noise at all hours and if you're looking for a quiet, secluded getaway, this may not be ideal as the accommodations are all relatively close together. That said, it was a great stay and we would recommend it to others!

Tent Camping
Amazing campground with options for everyone. The tent space was roomy and right along the river which was great to fall asleep to. Showers and bathrooms are really clean and upgraded. Only downside was road noise.

"The Coop" - Tiny Home on Wheels
So exciting to see the wonderful work this young couple has done with this property ! Enjoyed the site with the exception of the RV site being right on the busy/noisy road . I don't feel like the other cabins-tents would have the noise issue. Very relaxing and beautiful.

They have a perfect set up on property for glamping in all types of ways. We went for tent camping on the “beach”. The facilities and all the amenities they provide was top notch for a tent camping experience. We def will be coming back and trying their smaller cabins! Well maintained and they were full of ideas for us to do in the area, but there is plenty on property!! They were soo sooo sweet. Loved our camping experience here.
