Somehow we got one of the few sites that are right on the river. Kayaks and rafts go by all day Its pretty cool. You make a reservation but its first come first serve to what is available. So drive through and pick the one that suits you. Has a small beach that's good for wading, a pool and little food spots near by if you prefer.

Excellent location. Really scenic. Located on the American River. A really spectacular view of a mountain range close by. However this is a small campground. Sites are close together. Too many permanent rental sites. Therefore putting a serious lack of nice sites.

When we first arrived, staff was a little rude. This seemed to be the theme throughout the weekend with other campers. Electrical issues in the park, some boxes worked some didn't. No WiFi or phone service in the park or area. They claim to have WiFi... The area around the facility is pretty with some great views. The American River runs along the back side of the park and makes for a relaxing time. Overall, our experience wasn't bad, I just wish the staff had some customer service skills and realize everyone isn't as perfect as they are !!!!
