We stayed at campsite #11, which is described as a more private site providing a wooden platform with a canvas tent. The site itself met our expectations; however, I would recommend that the picnic table be moved to a more balanced area. It currently sits on a slope, which made it a bit uncomfortable for sitting and cooking.
Otherwise, we thought the facilities were great - ping pong, lots of board games, and hot showers, hey! What's not to like. Also, there is a nice hiking trail that starts near site #11. One part of the trail requires you to ascend and descend using ropes - that was kind of exciting. All in all, I can definitely see the appeal of Camp Nauvoo for a family with kids or a large group. There's just enough "roughing it" with the comforts of a clean bathroom and an inside area for refuge from the heat.
Lastly, Camp Nauvoo is pretty close to downtown Placerville (or is this "Old Placerville"?) so you can take a quick trip into town for an ice cream, or food if you don't feel like cooking.
Thanks, Greg & Laurie!
