Description

Located on Highway 49, midway between Placerville and Auburn, this resort is a classic! Imagine the South Fork American River running through your front yard and the golden color of the Sierra foothills reflecting off your sunglasses. In addition to a swimming beach, there are several places along the river for rafters and kayakers to launch their watercraft. A sparkling swimming pool and a clubhouse (complete with recreation hall) are great places for families to gather, and a general store and cafe provide comfort and convenience to campers.
