    Campsite reservations are made only during the on-season. In the off-season campsite availability is first-come, first-served.

    This secluded campground is located near the end of the peninsula between the north and south forks of the American River. You can reach the area by boat or you can drive in ten miles from the little town of Pilot Hill on Highway 49. The campground has 85 family campsites that will accommodate trailers up to 18 feet in length and motor homes up to 24 feet. Hookups are not provided at the individual campsites, but there is a sanitation dump station. Flush toilets and piped drinking water are available. There are two launch ramps and a day-use area near the park. Please be aware that both the boat launch ramps become unusable when the lake drops below 431 feet in elevation. This typically happens in late June to early July, but can vary annually. To check the current lake elevation you may visit the Department of Water Resources website. You can also camp ashore with your boat at Peninsula campground in a designated campsite. A secure tie-up is essential as the wind often rises during the night.

    Our more developed site, closer to our residents’ compound welcomes vans, RVs or tents and has a gorgeous large deck with a fire pit and two outdoor rocking chairs, along with firewood bundles and charcoal available to purchase.

    This is the spot for you if you want your privacy but also want to be closer to what’s happening on the homestead, which currently includes the development of a greenhouse, chicken yard and gardens; and near future plans to create a celtic labyrinth just down from this site. Also, it’s a bit easier for larger RVs to maneuver.

    Just far enough away is a Krapper-with-a-view! (Please pee outside to maintain the integrity of our Humanure system.)

    Usually strong cell signal (Verizon and T-Mobile).

    1. No drones allowed to protect the privacy of our residents and neighbors
    2. Please observe quiet hours of 10pm - 7am
