Camping

Escape the city – relax, unwind, and re-energize your mind, body, and soul. Surrounded by nature, the American River Resort offers a variety of camping options from the “back to basics” campout to a full set-up riverfront platform cabin tents with cots and chairs. So, get out under the stars and the oak trees, pitch your tent and enjoy all of the amenities the Resort has to offer. Take a dip in the pool, cast a line in the catch and release fishing pond, or enjoy and adventure down the river on one of our daily departing river rafting trips.

Take a short walk to explore the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park, visit one of our many local wineries, and enjoy endless hiking and biking trails in the area.

Spread out over almost 40 acres of riverfront property, the American River Resort has campsites for groups of all sizes. From private romantic cabin tents all the way to large group campsites that can accommodate 100+ campers. Campsites on the riverfront level are the best on the American River and always our most popular.

We have nine platform cabin tents set river along the river above Troublemaker Rapid. Each one of the cabin tent sleeps four and sit on a large wood platform and each one is set-up with cots and chairs. Each cabin tent has a small picnic table and fire-pit which can be used while campfires are allowed.

Our riverfront campsites are set along the famous Troublemaker rapid, the largest on the South Fork. Our riverfront campsites can accommodate groups of 2 all the way up to 40. Larger groups wanting to camp at the river often combine several sites for larger gatherings and events such as family reunions.

Our mountain view campsites are only a few minutes walking distance to the river. These mountain view campsites are set on a rise above the river amongst a beautiful native oak canopy. We have a wide range of mountain view campsites that can accommodate small groups of two and four all the way to large group campsites for 50+.

There is something for everyone, depending on your preferences and budget.
