This is Classic River Front Glamping

Cabin Tents on Platforms along the River with Cots, Sleeping Pads, and Chairs

What’s great about American River Resort’s cabin tents?

Convenience, comfort, and the best location on the American River. That’s right, no setup! Our cabin tents are ready for you to move in, relax and enjoy.

These sturdy, watertight canvas tents are handmade in Montana. They sit on raised wooden platforms with deck railings and chairs overlooking the American River. Inside, you will find comfortable cots and sleeping pads set up, so all you need to bring is your sleeping bags, blankets, and pillows. The platform cabin tents are located a stone’s throw from the river and are by far the best riverfront cabin tents on the American River. Each cabin tent camp area also comes with its own picnic table and private fire pit. You will not find a better spot on the American River!

The American River Resort is loaded with amenities and features for our guests to enjoy. For a full list of Resort Amenities and Features check out this page.

Platform Cabin Tents and their location

Platform Cabin Tents 1 to 3 are located a hundred feet directly upriver of Troublemaker, the biggest rapid on the South Fork of the American River. You can sit out on the deck and enjoy clear views of rafts and kayaks running the rapids. You can also enjoy the unparalleled views of Mount Murphy, and the Spring wildflower show is spectacular!

Platform Cabin Tents 4 to 12 are located upstream of Troublemaker and are ideally situated to take in the tranquility and soothing sounds of the river. These cabin tents are set in a relatively private section of the river and are a short 5-10 minute walk to the shower and restroom facilities, as well as all of the Resort amenities.

Words cannot do these platform cabin tents justice, so we suggest you check out the photos below.

The only accommodations more luxurious are American River Resort’s deluxe cabins. “Glamping” in our River Front Platform Cabin Tents, you’re that much closer to nature!
