Stayed here to check out area including Yosemite NP. A bit far for that (70miles) away but we made it work. Did close to 300 miles when done. Area full of 49r gold history and markers as well as the town of Columbia which is original. Would stay again.

The problem was with a long-term resident (suspected as there were cobwebs under all the tires) watched TV 24-7, loudly, and bless their hearts, were coughing loudly as...

We stayed here for 3 days, the staff and park are very accommodating and really know how to make you feel at home. It was a packed weekend and they found room for us. They do all sorts of things to make you feel welcome. Friday night hot dog feed so you don't have to worry about cooking that first...

We only spent a night here but it was a really nice place. The staff are very nice and helpful. We arrived late and there was somebody who came out to meet us and help us into our site. The site had full hook up and very good wifi. The sites were big and spacious with a bench and table...

My wife and I loved our stay, full hook ups, wi-fi and cable TV. Park is very clean and quite, sites are level and semi spacious. Little store for any needs, fenced in pet area. Close to attractions, we will be back. They have group sites and bathroom plus kitchen facilities
