Lovey's on the Sacramento River!

6 sites 路 RVs, Tents3 acres 路 Meridian, CA
Welcome to Lovey's Landing on the Sacramento River! Our story goes back to the 1930s when a 鈥渟lide鈥 was used to put boats in the river (unfortunately, the slide is no longer in use, but you can see it when you visit!). Since then, a marina, RV park, and Restaurant and Bar (currently closed) have been added. It's a great staging area for any valley or river expedition. This is an old-school sort of place with a lot of farmers and ranchers around. Fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts love it here! A meadow of pastoral trees provides shade on some campsites. Pitch a tent on an acre of mowed grass or go with more creature comforts and bring your RV. Our tent camping area allows you to enjoy lots of room between other campers. We do have full hook-up RV sites; however, you must call directly to reserve those sites if available. (Call: 530-696-2449 opt 1). We also have a small marina and boat slip rentals available. Walk the Sacramento River for miles on the levee road. We are nestled in one of the greatest nut-growing areas in the world. We are the closest camping area to the Sutter Buttes 鈥淭he smallest mountain range in the world鈥. We also happen to be in the Sutter Basin, or "great sink." Here, many types of winter waterfowl pass through the Pacific Flyway. Check out the many local wildlife refuges nearby. Bring a boat, kayak, or a float tube. (If floating, please inquire with all rules and safety measures from local professionals, guides, government authorities and Lovey's Landing. Floating is at your own risk.) Enjoy watching the river scenery, fishing, otters playing, beavers building, deer grazing, ospreys, and other birds taking flight. Since October 2023, we have updated our bathrooms and added new signs to our front entrance. Please note that Google maps may take you a little past the sign (we're working on fixing this!), so be on the lookout for our new sign! We look forward to you staying with us at Lovey鈥檚 Landing!

The best camping near Phantom Falls guide



Within the North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve, Phantom Falls is a 166 ft seasonal waterfall. While there is no official trail down to the falls, a parking lot 2 miles away allows straight-forward access. At the bottom of the falls you can opften find Coastal Range Newts, a local subspecies. The fun doesn't stop there! In a grotto behind the falls you can find an old mineshaft that is still used for scientific purposes today. Entering the shaft is allowed but beware as it can be a strenuous and dangerous task.

When to go

The best time to visit Phantom Falls is during the spring, when the waterfalls are most active and the wildflowers are in full bloom. Avoid the hot, dry summer months when the falls may be less impressive and the landscape less verdant.

Know before you go

  • Sturdy, closed-toe footwear is essential for navigating the rugged trails.
  • Bring ample water as there are no facilities on site.
  • Keep a safe distance from the cattle used for land management.
  • Respect the wildlife and do not disturb the natural environment.
  • Check local regulations and secure any necessary permits for hunting.
