Well maintained campsite next to small lake

This is a small but lovely place. I pitched a tent in site 43 right next to the lake. Excellent place.

Almost deserted

Beautiful campground, very few spots with hookups . Restrooms clean, showers available bring your quarters. We stayed right on the levee 🤗 Bonus bike trail!!

Beautiful river side park

I tent camped and loved it. Very quiet and beautiful scenery. A water faucet and picnic table at every campsite .

Beautiful campground and park

I tent camped here and really liked it. There is also an RV section. It has flush toilets, showers and WiFi. For recreation you have the park behind the camp with great hiking trails and the whole Napa region. The people who work there are nice and do a great job keeping it up.

It’s an RV park

Fairly run of the mill. A few tent spots that you have to reserve but mostly RVs, many of which seemed to have been there a while. A bit pricey at ~$70 a night. Facilities seemed fine - they have a pool/hot tub. Easy walk to the mall. There was zero social activity; everyone seemed to be in their RV all day and night.

Fantastic little spot

Definitely the best campground in the Auburn area, though only 5 walk-in spots. It’s right on the river with fishing and boating opportunities. Lots of hiking trails right from camp. The 3 mile road down is a bit treacherous (maybe don’t take your RV) but makes you feel ‘out there’. Highly recommended.

Dusty but pretty lake

The full hookup rv spots are gravel & very dusty. Whole park is actually. Spots are a little tight for my 37' 5th wheel but it worked out pretty good. Back end of my trailer hung over a big hill. You sit above the full timer rv spots & mostly look at trees. Good sunsets! Lake water level was super low at end of summer & lake is hard to access. Unless you got a boat. Saw deer & wild turkeys. This park is huge. Can drive around & find a good spot to access the lake & go swimming.

Decent spot for passing through

Gravel spots & pick nick tables. Only had 30amp service & the outlet moved around a bit. Had to prop up my plug with some blocks to keep it from moving or would lose power. Nice playground for kids. The trees around the grounds dropped a ton of sap in the morning. Gravel stuck to my shoes as i was walking around.

Lots to do

There are plenty of things to do for your kids but be prepared to spend a lot of money for a site for the weekend.

Another wonderful stay

This was my second time staying and it was just as amazing as the last time we stayed. The showers and bathrooms are always clean. We arrived and there were no other people staying so it was quiet. Took a little hike around the trail, grinding rock and went to the free museum this time. You can’t beat $30 a night to stay at this place.

We love it!

Excellent camping area, depending on time of year camp site may be within a few yards from the water. We bring our kayaks and paddle all day there are plenty of miles of lakeside to explore. The peninsula camping site is a bit longer drive but worth it!

It'll do

If you're just looking for some place to park your RV with hookups around the Delta or pitch a tent, this is a great place. Nothing special really as far as amenities and atmosphere, but it's less expensive than some of the other places and while there are a lot of people living there in their RVs and boats, everyone pretty much stay to themselves and are relatively friendly. I recommend going here if you plan on traveling around the Delta or nearby area, not as your main hang out location.

Swimming fun

Acorn Campground is great for tent and RV camping. Warm weather so great for swimming. Good for fishing, boating (they have a launch), kayaking, paddle boarding and you can bring bikes and scooters for the kids.

Nice place next to river

This place is north east of Sacramento. Coloma resort is what some friends call "Glamping", but it's so much more than that. You can tent camp (it's covered sites for camping too), rent a cabin or RV camp. Great sites along the river too. One negative, is you have to book way ahead of time, but it's well worth it. You can pan for gold, relax, or bike, hike along the river, and kids can play along several playgrounds for kids of different ages. A large grass area great for games, and if you are up for it, rafting, kayaking and fishing in the cold American river. You can also learn some history about the discovery of gold and check out Sutter Mill!

Awesome place

Really clean and well taken care of really love this spot spaces are spaced apart well so you have some room around you..

Beautiful but lots of drugs and desperate homelessness

Greeted with trash and cigarette butts littering the park. Spent 15 minutes picking up trash so campsite was decent. Homeless drug addicts resided in the next site over. Random people came at all times to park car while tenants ran out to car. Then car left quickly. That’s a drug deal.
Bags and trash littered their site. They rarely came out of their tents. Our last night homeless people came through our camp to rummage through the trash. They only left when we called the cops.
Random car yelled f*&$ you at my little boys. Horrible.
I only gave it one star for the physical beauty.

Quiet and beautiful camping

Stayed for two nights and it was so quiet. It’s the perfect campsite that allows campfires, has showers and restrooms, and has a hiking trail. There’s a nearby convenience store called the Dollar General if you need to grab a few last minute items. Highly recommend going to the Black Chasm Cavern nearby. It’s the perfect campsite, I will be visiting again soon!

Loomis RV Park Ca.

Lots of trees for shade and a nice swimming pool to cool yourself. The sites are a nice size. This is an older park in a location close to shopping. However, the train is near by and can be heard in the park. It comes by about twice in a 24 hr period. Office staff very nice and helpful. There are laundry facilities (pay). And many long term “campers”. All in all,it’s a sweet set up, with easy access.

Beautiful, friendly, and clean!

We stayed 4 days at this park and had the best time!! The kids loved the stocked fishing ponds, and even better was the immaculate 2 swimming pools and playground! Everyone was busy having fun the whole time and the grounds were perfectly kept, all the facilities are very clean, and when it’s 90 out you can’t beat the ice cream in the cafe! Definitely makes you feel like you’re on a vacation here. All the spots have power and water.

Nice family campground

The man made pond is nice for the kids. It has a slide they can use. Rv areas are clean. Tent camping is okay!

So so...

Nearly any shade. More young adults who tend to be loud and drink alcohol all night.

Beautiful view

Gorgeous place to camp and tons of dragonflies,butterflies and bees. We did a lot of kayak fishing and relaxing by the lake. We were able to walk the kayaks down with no problem. The only 2 down falls are…… you can’t read the tiny sign that says your campsite number. I think it should be on both sides of the sign and bold. Also they’re sooooo close together. It’s great for families and they can buy a couple next to each other. Tho we were celebrating our 1 year anniversary and we would have wanted more space between campers. Other than that it was a lot of fun and perfect weather. They don’t have showers so heads up. We just got naked and did it cave man style in the middle of the night. It was warm enough and made it that much more special. They do have water spouts to wash your dishes and bathrooms walking distance. A picnic table, bbq and fire pit at every location. Make sure you get water shoes because the lake does have sharp rocks and the local CVS has them. It was really nice and convenient and worth the money. It did get really hot , so my fiancé and I went to the local ice cream parlor. It was about 5-7 minutes away from the site. It’s a cute little mom and pop ice cream shop and the customer service was amazing. We went their Friday afternoon when it was over 90 degrees and it was the best ice cream. It’s called Country girls ice cream shop. Look for the pink picnic table and red corner sign. I recommend this place and also right near buy is a little gas station to get gas, bait, firewood and etc. Well hope this helps future campers and have fun.


Very calm RV site. Manager is in process of making renovations. No cable no wifi. Very secluded area. 30 mins to grocery.

First Come, First Serve

Lake front sites, but stacked on top of each other. Plenty of goose crap to dodge and make sure to show up early! Not our favorite, but still doable.

Amazing spot all to ourselves!

One of my favorite places to camp!

Easy camping, affordable

Many sites, good water access, but not a lot of shade or flat ground for tents. Affordable. Not the prettiest scenery in California, but a cheap and reliable way to get some quick nature. Allows dogs.

In the middle of Sacramento

It’s a gravel lot next to the fair grounds, kinda expensive for what you get.

First to Review
85 acres of beauty, but close enough to amenities and adventures

The owners of this campground have made it there mission that you have a wonderful experience if you are a newbie or seasoned camper.  Great sites for families and romantic sites for couples. Hiking, swimming,fishing and places for quiet time.
