Friendly clean and fantastic

Had a great stay here. It was beautiful and it was clean and the campsite was the most nicely groomed I think I’ve ever stayed at. The caretakers really do a great job here and the woman who took care of me was very friendly and helpful and got me the exact spot that I wanted next to the river.

Quiet, Creek Side Camping

🌲 Do your part and keep this campground clean & quiet!

My partner and I camped here on a Sunday night. We arrived mid-day, and asked the camp host (Adam) if they had any spots available. He was happy we stopped by and gave use a creek side spot with parking. A site is $28 per night and they sell bundles of firewood for $8. Our spot was beautiful, and luckily the campsite adjoining ours and the other nearby site was empty. Every campsite has a nice fire pit with grills, a charcoal grill, and a picnic table nearby. We were right by one of the toilets and a dumpster which was super convenient, only major downside was that even though the toilet was very well maintained, it did smell and have a lot of flies (please close the lid). The river was great for a dip(was about 1 ft deep at the time but seemed low) and very relaxing. The campground was extremely quiet and everyone seemed respectful, however, I’ve given this campsite 4 stars because I imagine having neighbors next door on a busy weekend could be a little less private than ideal. Overall though, it was a lovely site and I would definitely return. Also, there were a ton of blue jays and other birds.

Quiet & Spacious

We were happy to find a spot after already visiting 3-4 of our regular spots that were already full (and this was on a Wednesday!). Camp host asked us if we wanted to be in the village or quiet. We choose quiet because those spots were bigger and we had quite a few dogs. The camp host was very friendly and kept the place clean, even the bathrooms. Even gave us tips on where to fish and the best time to visit.

River nearby!

Really liked this campground. Very well maintained and on the Silver Fork of American River. Camp host was nice, but didn't recognize discount for US National Park Pass. $23/night.

Will return, but only with more people to split the bill.

So quiet

Big sites! Great spacing between neighbors. Nice and shaded, paved. No cell service with AT & T. Great swim area for the kids with just a short walk. Love the Kyburz area. Vault toliets, though fairly well maintained. Will visit again and again!
