“The best camp resort and staff in California! A true hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

I really don't want you to know about this place. This is a hidden gem, the more folks that find out how great this place is, the more I have to share-) I travel extensively for a Fortune 1000 company. So Im very picky about things like service and cleanliness. There is one negative review so it important to note that this is new ownership not related to that review. We like how spacious the campsites are, we like the location close to museums, caves and mine tours. The grounds are well cared for, and all the amenities, like the pool, mini golf, arcade room are excellent condition. Also, this would be a great retreat getaway it has plenty of rooms, cabins, tent sites and RV sites to accomadate a large group. The premium sites are amazing as they are pull throughs some with private roads to get to. Staff is knowledgable, helpful and rules like leash and noise are enforced making it a relaxing rewarding stay.

We just spent 3 days tent camping at this campground. Overall, it was a good experience, but there are a few things you should know. First, the campground is on a slope. RV sites this doesn't really matter, but on Tent sites everyone ends up at one side of the tent. Next time, I would definitely ask for there flattest tent site. Second, the bathroom/shower facilities in the tent site area are older and not as clean. If you hike up hill a bit the RV sites showers/bathrooms are much nicer. The splash pad is very nice and seems new, the pool was okay but not as clean as it could be. The miniature gold course & arcade could use some updating & repairs. Overall the grounds were good, but again could use a little more up keeping. I will say our 4 & 7 year olds really liked the campground. If you decide to go to this campground I recommend going to see the Black Chasm Cave, The Indian Grinding Stone Park, and spending the day with the Roaring Mining Company.

This is a great place to camp, specially who have kids in the range of 6 to 12. The water spray park is very exciting for the kids. The mini golf, Basket ball and other sport activities. It looks to be very safe place. It has thick trees keeping the area covered and cool. We were two families. They allow 2 tents and maximum of 5 persons per camp site. The Toilets are cleaned and maintained frequently and the water in the shower was hot throughout the day.
The two drawbacks with this place are 1. the camp ground which is very dusty if someone drives through or if the security guys keep driving. 2.I think none of the camp sites are plain grounds, meaning a bit on the slope of the hill. So, in sleep you keep rolling on the other person !!
Good thing ... No fear of Bears or any other animal.
Would recommend those with kids !!

Just got back and wanted to share our thoughts. Although it was a bit cold, which is out of the norm, we had a great time. Very few campers this week, which made us really appreciate our surroundings. The staff was outstanding and especially friendly! The grounds needed a little bit of work but the staff was busy at work getting things ready for the summer. Lots of things to do for the kids and teens. This is only 1 1/2 hours from home so we really got to enjoy our time there. We enjoyed it so much that we are going back in May.

The park gets better with every trip we make - Our children have never been in the snow before and it was a great time to come. There wasn't alot of snow but enough for the boys to have a good time and enjoy hot chocolate in the cabin when they were done playing. The love to play minature golf as well so again the resort came through - can't say enough about the park!!! Thank you for great memories

We stayed at the Resort on 2 occasions. We are work campers and in between our jobs we stayed at the Gold Country RV Resort.
As work campers you tend to look at things from a different angle.. and I give them a 10 out of 10. The park is very pretty with lots of trees yet open and airy it is a good combination of the 2.
The park was clean, quite, peaceful, secure and the workers very courteous and helpful. The sites here are terraced but the road is very nicely paved. We liked the way that the park is laid out. If you are in need of a more flat level area.. ask for a site at the top of the hill in the park.
I was quite impressed with what they have to offer there at the resort. They have accommodations to meet all your needs, whether you are a large group , family reunion, or single family.
They have wifi, cable, an arcade / craft building, large swimming pool, Children's play ground, a club house w/ a large area for out door meetings or large family cook outs. They have a gazebo which would be perfect for weddings, a miniature golf course, a water wonderland play area and much more. They are located right across the street from a company which offers gold panning trips. I am sure that i am forgetting to mention some other amenities which they have to offer their guests who stay there.
I do understand in the past that this park was questionable but the new owners/management have it going on.. Don't miss this one, you will not be disappointed. I might also mention that they are located in an area with so much to see and do whether your coming in the Summer or the Winter.
We would definitely stay there again and look forward to it.
