In the information below we have highlighted some of the most frequently asked topics. We want you to understand that, when staying at our park, your experience is our absolute highest priority and we constantly strive to find ways to enhance your stay even more! Our park was built 25+ years ago, so for the last few years we have been in a constant state of updating & refurbishment. Your comfort is SO important to us, which is why we have added a brand new HD cable tv system, brand new high speed wifi system, we are in the process of building all brand new tables, and much more.
Over the last couple of years, we've added activities such as the movie nights, ping pong, foosball, additional arcade games, 22ft inflatable waterslide, etc. Guests are now welcomed at registration with free fresh made cookies. Free coffee is now offered anytime the store is open. Free popcorn and treats are available at movie nights. We've also removed many undesirable rules and included some activities that used to be an additional cost, such as mini-golf, into your camping experience.
We want you to have the most enjoyable time when staying at our park so that you'll return and maybe... just maybe... bring friends! If something isn't right then please approach management so we can fix this for you right away. When at our park YOU ARE OUR GUEST and WE CARE ABOUT YOU so please give us the opportunity to provide you a 5 star experience!

Sunday - Thursday 9:00am - 7:00pm
Friday & Saturday 9:00am - 8:00pm
These are our minimum winter hours. Typically open 365 days per year with shortened hours on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day.
During prime season we close at 8pm midweek and 9pm weekends at the earliest.
Check-in Time is 2pm
Check-out Time is 11am
We truly appreciate the majority of our guests arriving and leaving in accordance with our check-in/check-out times. The short time period between check-out at 11am and check-in at 2pm affords our staff the ability to make it to each site to prepare for the next guest. This often involves raking leaves, cleaning bbq grills, picking up loaner fire pits, micro trash pickup, dusting picnic tables, etc. It's a lot to accomplish in a short time period.
That said, we don't want arriving or departing our park to be an inconvenience for our guests. If you arrive a little early and the space is available then we will be happy to check you in early at no additional fee. If you are running a little late on departure then we can often provide a little extra time for you to pack up your belongings or enjoy a last minute activity. Just talk with us, we want each of our guests to have a memorable and stress free stay!
I'm sorry, we do not currently offer late checkout at a fee. Please see our notes in the check-out topic above for some helpful details. If you do need to stay in the area (off the grounds) for a few extra hours then we usually permit guests to park their rigs in one of our long parking spaces. This provides you a safe place to dry park your rig at no additional fee in an effort to be accommodating.
If this isn't convenient, we invite you to enjoy another night with us. Without feeling rushed, you'll be able to take full advantage of all the exciting things our campground and local area has to offer.
Our swimming pool and hot tub are open 9am to at least 8pm year round, depending on the weather. Our pool is not heated but we do maintain it throughout winter for our adventurous guests delight (yes, it gets COLD).
Swimmers must be accompanied by someone over 14 years old to enter the pool area.
The hot tub can be enjoyed by all guests over 5 years old.
Our campground was built right off Highway 50 as a convenience for overnight guests heading towards the mountains. When making reservations for our park it should be clear to you and others in your party that you are intentionally choosing our park knowing it is located adjacent to a highway. You are expecting to hear road noise. For the majority of our guests this is not bothersome enough to hamper the many great features our park offers and experience we provide.
If you find highway noise repulsive when camping then please select a park that is not located adjacent to a freeway. This will ensure that you enjoy your stay at whatever park you choose and that our guests can rate our park fairly to us. We LOVE guest feedback. We are constantly making changes accordingly and strive to provide the best guest experience possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to relocate our park away from a freeway. Please understand this.
If you are a very light sleeper then we are happy to provide free earplugs upon request. If the freeway does bother you then we would also love the opportunity to move you to an available site further from the freeway. Your comfort is of the highest importance to us!
Due to a county restriction we are unable to allow wood fires at the individual campsites. We do have a group wood fire ring available for our guests to share. If you would like a private fire then you are welcome to use Duraflame logs or charcoal in your grill. You are also welcome to bring your own fire pit (legs required) to use Duraflame logs or charcoal in (propane models also allowed). If you don't have your own fire pit then don't worry... we'll loan you one of ours! Just inquire about availability at the front desk or put in a request when making your reservation. We typically stock Duraflame "Roasting Logs" in our store which are made specially for cooking marshmallows etc without the harmful chemicals. They make a very realistic campfire experience!
At times our park might be on wood fire restriction by the county due to extreme fire danger without warning.
Adult & Child Fee: $5
Senior Fee: $2
Visitors are welcome. ALL visitors must stop at the office to register before proceeding into our campground to ensure the safety of our guests. Visitors are charged the fee per day regardless of how long they stay or what facilities they use. Ages 3 and under are free. You are welcome to prepay visitor fees before they arrive if you like. Visitors must park in the designated visitor parking lots and not at your site, regardless if there is room, unless otherwise instructed.
All visitors receive a fresh baked cookie and are welcome to use our wifi as well as enjoy all the same facilities as our guests. This includes free coffee, mini-golf, and movie nights with free goodies!
We love dogs! We have just finished building a GIANT Camp K9 for them! Unfortunately, our insurance company prohibits any pit bull breed or pit bull mix to be on the grounds at any time. This includes American Pit Bull, Pit Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier, etc. Please understand, this is not a personal stand to single out a specific breed but a common insurance requirement. No aggressive dogs of any breed allowed.
Dogs must be kept on a short leash at ALL times except when visiting inside the dog park.
Quiet Hours: 10pm - 9am
Friday & Saturday Movie Nights Exceed Quiet Hours. We start the movie as early as the light/projector/screen allows us but, unfortunately, this much beloved park feature can go pretty late during summer hours. The movie volume is often heard throughout most of the park. If this is an issue for you, please reserve early and request a site furthest from this activity.
Our posted quiet hours is a good time for all families grouped up on sites to disburse back to their own camp sites. RV, Cabin, and Tent walls are very thin, so light voices or laughter really tends to travel even though guests work hard to prevent it. Our night host is instructed to visit ALL sites with guests still enjoying the outdoors after 10pm at night regardless if they are loud or not. We find that if we remind everyone of quiet voices and to turn off electronic equipment then nobody feels singled out or offended. We want ALL of our guests to be comfortable, including you, so this is not intended as a way of policing.
In late 2018 we finished installing a brand new cable tv system with 16 standard definition channels and their HD counterparts! All sites marked as having cable tv should be working fantastic! If you have any issues at all, please contact the front office for assistance and we will get it working for you.
We do offer propane at our park. Propane is not offered 24/7 since certified staff are required to legally pump the propane. We can't legally pump in the dark or in the rain.
Hours are generally 9am - 3pm. Most Tuesdays and Sundays we don't pump in the winter.
Always ask in the event of an emergency. Your comfort is of the highest priority for us and we will do everything in our power to help you!
Our customer service philosophies involve serving our customers in the best way while preserving the environment.
In 1987 the couple planned to build their campground on beautiful spot in the middle of pastureland. Before they could begin, national no-growth groups converged on them, and the Simoneaus found themselves in the middle of litigation that went all the way to the State Appeals Court.
Years later they were able to build their beautiful campground and have a place for each member of their family on staff. Their son is the assistant manager while their daughter is a key part of the staff. Even John and Cindy's grandson, Quest, is growing up on the campground. "I had an electronics business that wasn't very family oriented and we wanted to do a business that had something for the kids," John said.
The park is growing and the Simoneaus have their hands full keeping it clean. "Cindy is a clean freak," John said. "Our bathrooms are 20 years old and spotless."
John said the couple is particularly proud of the setting of their campground-right in the foothills between the Sacramento Valley and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their customer service philosophies involve serving their customers in the best way while keeping the environment preserved. In their free time, John said they like to play with their grandson and have fun.
"The main thing is to have fun," he said.
