Our American river private Camp

WWE South Fork Camp

Our Private Riverside Campground is one of the Best on the River!

  • Best Facilities — We’ve deliberately concentrated our efforts on 5 rivers for the past 34 years, and this allowed us to develop and maintain some of the best facilities on any river in California.
  • Facilities continually upgraded — Our American River campground has been upgraded with hot showers, new concrete patio, and camp store and check in building..
  • Not into Camping Try one of our Cabin Tents!! We have just purchased 3 new ones that add to our existing 2. All of our cabin tents are on platforms overlooking the river, and include 1 queen and 3 single wooden beds and deluxe sleeping pads that rent for $70 a night.  Also, check out our “Honeymoon Deluxe Cabin Tent, with a regular queen sized bed with box springs and mattress, night stands, chairs all on a deck over looking the river!  This one rents for $80 a night.  They fill up fast so call today to reserve one for your upcoming trip.
  • Comfort and Adventure — Our more than comfortable facilities allow our guests to fully enjoy their adventure.

Our South Fork Base Camp is by far the most well equipped, comfortable camp on the river. This allows us to enjoy the “wilderness” side of our river trips but still benefit from some of the usual niceties of life. Our camp is located directly on the banks of the South Fork of the American river, near Coloma, on 20 acres of wilderness. This site is used only by our guests and is not a public camp area. We have equipped it with full bathrooms that have flush toilets, hot showers, sinks and mirrors. We also have a sunken sand volleyball court, along with horseshoe pits and ping pong in the rare case that you didn’t get enough exercise on the water! Our camp store is loaded with sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats, snacks, camping items and much more.

Our new gathering area is located right next to the camp store and was designed for you to relax and hang out after your trip, watch river videos, cool down with a shaved ice cone and reminisce about your adventure.

“With the soothing sound of the American River in the background – I’ve never slept better!”
