“Great stay for our first RV outing”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Very helpful & friendly staff who helped two novice RV campers! Clean, quiet facility with everything you need to stay there, including missing parts to hook up to RV facilities. A nice place to base your stay to the Gold Country.

Enjoyed our stay at 49er RV Ranch. The host at the Ranch care about your stay and are eager to help you out in anyway, from getting you registered, helping you to move into your camping spot, helping you plan your day (in what ever you are interested in doing, as long as it's legal LOL). They have planed activities around the campground and go all out during the busy summer camping season. There is no way that you are your family can get bored. There are many small old towns near by and they all have a history to tell. Like Railroads? There is Railtown near by which is a California State Park with a number of steam trains and rolling stock. take a guided tour and learn the history.

My husband and I enjoyed our short stay so much - very nice location, wonderful people. The historic buildings on site and the amenities were great. We decided we should have stayed longer and may do that next time, which will be soon. Terrific area.

Our visit began with a very receptive check in, followed by 3 staff members assisting us with positioning of our rig. Very efficient and helpful staff helped us park with one smooth evolution in a very difficult, but awesome site in the trees overlooking the main camp area and camp fire. Gratis dinner on Fridays at the campfire was a welcome change to our planned dinner, due to our later than expected arrival. After dinner, Cricket, the camps resident musician provided some relaxing and very nice bluegrass guitar and banjo songs with an open offer to partake in marshmallows by the campfire along with an offer for gold panning hands on demonstrations in the morning. We did not take part in the marshmallows or gold panning because our plans took us elsewhere, but will do this on future visits. Upon the unfortunate end of our stay, getting out from our spot was met with equivalent customer service as well as a 2 for 1 special return trip offer if we booked at that time. We very much look forward to our return trip. Happy travels!

Fun place to go with lots of things to see and do in the area. Campground folks were very helpful and friendly. Plan on returning in June and hope the weather will be as wonderful as it was on the last visit.

I have been RVing full time since August, 2011 and this has been one of my favorite stays. I stayed here three months and and found the place to be great for long term and short term RVers. The installed FIOS super fast internet, a must for full timers. The property has a lot of character with a rustic feel. They host camp fires with period entertainment. Full hook ups with strong 50 amp service. I found the staff to be very helpful in solving my issues. The location is walking distance to the historic gold rush town of Columbia and is an easy drive to Yosemite National Park. I will definitely be a repeat guest.
