“Great place to camp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We have been here several times and always have a great time. They use the common sense approach to running this place and are not stuck in a set of rules. The owner comes around and greets you, trash is emptied at your site daily and there are many options to spread out and have fun. We camp here with a large group for spring break every year and will keep coming back. Our favorite time here is the early spring and late fall. It is very close to apple hill for the fall or to go cut your Christmas tree down if you can get in for Thanksgiving weekend.

Rafting trips come to the resort, wine tasting, live music in the summer. The biggest negative is during the summer it can be very hot and the pool stays pretty cool and so does the river. Not a big deal and the place is well run.
Bathrooms are very clean as well, I have no problem showering in them.

Hi all,

We took our new 32' Winnebago Vista to the Coloma resort. Making the reservation with the staff was friendly and easy. We reserved a spot overlooking the river. The river spot does not have dump facilities but they have water and electric. Other spots off of the water have full hook ups. Beware, you do have to drive across a one lane bridge built in 1915 (upgraded a few times) to get to the resort. Check-in was easy and staff guided us to our campsite.

The site was nice and level. One problem was that we asked for 50 amp hookups. Our site did not have 50, only 30amp. The site next to ours was empty and had a 50amp. The staff told us we could move but we would have neighbors. They were trying to keep one empty site between campers. We decided to stay in our site. Since this was April, we really did not need to run both air conditioners and we ended up having plenty of power.

The restroom were clean and had clean showers. I took a shower in afternoon. The water started out hot but suddenly got freezing cold...then back to hot. It did this several times. That was my chief complaint. The office has a small store but is not heavily stocked.

The bathrooms were clean and they had clean showers. One problem I had was when i took a shower in the afternoon. The water was nice and hot but then turned ice cold. I adjusted the temp but after a minute it turned back to scalding hot. This happened several times during the shower.

The park was very clean and dog friendly. The park is just a few minutes from the Gold rush musuem areas...Sutters mill, gold panning, rifter rafting, etc. We went on a few hikes and the area was beautiful. We also found a few geocaches in the area. There are quite a few.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and the park was clean. The park was appeared to be less than 1/3 full. I don't know how the park is when it is really busy in the summer.

the resort also rents out cabins, interspaced through out the park. The cabins look nice and clean.

Room Tip: If you can go without the dump hookups, take a spot by the river. Very scenic and relaxing listreni...
