We agree with previous posts, the staff is great at this RV park. The sites can be tough to get into, and they direct you into your site. The hookups are well located. The road into the park is narrow but it is no real problem. On Friday night they had free hot dogs, also coffee every morning. The park itself is probably a 7 but with the extra service we raised it to an 8. Nice quiet park, we will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Had a flat, level, gravel, back-in site. Staff made it easy to park. Sites have two sewer hookups so you could choose the most convenient option. Wi-Fi worked well. Nice picnic table in site. Free coffee each morning and free chili fogs on Friday night. Nice campfire program. Staff constantly asked if they could do anything to make our stay nicer. Use driving direction on web site. GPS not aware of closed streets due to Columbia State Park. Very nice park. Only down side was no good spots to take dog on walk due to narrow, windy road. Would definitely stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great hospitality by staff and good location for many sites to do and see around area (Columbia, Jamestown, Murphy's, Big Trees, etc.). Some of campground is on hillside so getting into tight spots can be tricky but staff is great in helping you into your spot. Showers/bathrooms could use upgrading (hot water takes awhile to work (esp. in men's). Have free grilled hot dogs on Friday night, nightly campfire get togethers with a singer, & free gold panning lessons. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our stay here very much. We had a choice spot, but we spent most of our time with family. The location was rough, I was raised in this area so we didn't have trouble finding it, but I can tell those who are not to follow directions carefully. Driving around these hills with a trailer not knowing where to go can stress some people - so just plan ahead. The management was terrific, very friendly. We needed help to park our trailer as the campground was full and a SUPER TRAILER PARKING GURU was there to help! They offer a lot for campers with children (game room/barn) lots of room to roam. They also had campfire and a guitar/singer one night. Highly recommend this campground. Columbia has a lot to offer, something for everyone to see. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Once we located the park had a great time. Follow the directions on the web site very carefully. We had a hard time finding the park, but the manager actually came out to find us. Several roads to take in make it confusing. All other aspects of our stay were 10+. Great management and staff always trying to help, including parking our 5th wheel. Tell management ahead of time if you plan to use a Sat. Dish as there are limited sites with clearance. Ours worked great. I would definitely get a reservations in the spring and summer since there are limited short term sites. This is definitely the best park in the area. We really enjoyed the park and there are tons of things to to do in the area. Will be back next winter/spring. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
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. Rate was based on monthly stay plus electricity. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very nice campground run by very nice people. Although there weren't very many camp sites for travelers, most of the permanents were up in another place, so they weren't an issue. It is a great campground for visiting Columbia and Jamestown. The bathrooms/showers were adequate, but needing an upgrade. We paid using our PPA membership...their standard rate of $49 is way too much. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground has a few sites for short-term camping, but most of the sites are used by permanent residents. This was a distraction from the "camping" experience we enjoy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The campground was clean. The restroom and laundry room are a bit shabby. The restroom and shower area are not heated. Most of the campsites do not afford any privacy. We will likely stay elsewhere the next time we visit this area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
What a nice place to visit! The staff/owner were by far the friendliest that we have ever encountered. The area offers many places to see, the town of Murphys is just a short hop down the road, along with the quaint town of Columbia. We will definitely return to this adorable, friendly, clean rv park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A little too tight for big rigs. Only a few sites can really accommodate the 45 footers. Some of these sites are not level. The bathrooms are ancient but functional. The staff is terrific but the campground is a bit tired. Great place for smaller rigs. Close to the main Columbia area. If you have a big rig you may want to consider camping at the Sonora Fairgrounds. We will not camp here again only because it was a bit too tight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really enjoyed this park. The owners are great with lots of local history and information. Our site was spacious and private - kind of an unusual site with a rock wall on 2 sides. Highly recommend this RV park. It is a bit tight getting into and out of spots. There are long term campers, but they are in separate area. The area is very neat also. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 2 nights. The park is very clean and the spaces are nice sized. They do not have individual campfires in each site, instead they have a general-area campfire each night and everyone is invited. You can walk to the town and spend a day there, fun for kids. The RV park also has some gold-mining demonstration and overall it's a very nice park. It is pet friendly too. It has very nice owners/operators. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice RV park! The owners are amazing, we are full timers and they are the friendliest owners we've come across! They really make you feel welcomed and stop by and pet the dogs and our traveling cat! They informed us of all the things to do around the area including walking down to town to see the historic buildings and pan for your own gold! We really like this place and would recommend them anytime! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Their website is misleading!! This is a tiered, full time trailer park cut into a steep hillside with a few RV sites near the road on an open gravel patch. We did not check-in because it was completely unappealing in every way. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Love this place. Very quite, perfect for us. People are friendly. We will repeat for sure! It's a small place with a dirt road. Host will help you to your spot and guide you in. There is a free BBQ on Friday night. They also have a gold panning class you can take. Again we had a great time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This place was old and a bit shabby. It is decked out in gold rush era decor, including the staff. The staff was friendly, but there was no pool for the kids and the sites were cramped and dusty. If it wasn't close to Columbia, which is the big attraction, it would be empty. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our first coach outing in a brand new motor home. The people, staff and other guest were wonderful! Our experience was a true pleasure - we will come back. Only down side, we were in a site that made us part of the central campfire evenings whether we wanted to be or not -- this was okay but if we had wanted a private-anti-social weekend we would need to select a site a little further from the central location. This is not a big park but it has a coral area for groups and a central gathering building that the group that was there when we were seemed to enjoy very much. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very rustic looking park, authentic to the area. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Nice big site, gravel throughout park. Small fenced dog walk area. Lots of big trees; very clean and quiet. We would stay here again! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This place is older and the sites are tight, but its one of the most quiet places to stay. They help you spot your rig, which is necessary for some back in sites. The owner is a great host, and the Columbia town is the ultimate gold country destination. No pool, though. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I wanted to stay here after visiting website and reading some reviews. I was let down with atmosphere-part of park is a mobile home park. It is a long walk down a 2 lane road with small shoulder to get to Columbia SP. It is better to drive there. There are very tight area with narrow sites. The dog walk is tiny and on the main road (so small, it smells of dog waste so I wouldn't use it-instead I walked my dogs on the main road). The nice friendly staff was a plus. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After reading all the "glowing" reviews of the 49er RV Ranch, we altered our plans to spend a night or two here. This place is way overpriced for what they offer ($38.20 with a senior discount, with Good Sam the rate is $40.50). We regularly camp at state and federal campgrounds and are very experienced with getting into tight campsites. This RV park has extremely narrow and hilly roads with absolutely no room for maneuvering. We needed to use our 4WD-Low range to park our 32'FW in a ridiculous sized space. I've seen sardine cans with more room between the residents. In addition to the transient spaces, there are about 36 permanent RV'ers. They're special one hot dog and beans around the fire is an additional $5 per person. Couldn't leave this ripoff fast enough. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Enjoyed our one night stay at this campground. Staff in office was pleasant. It was crowded when we were here as there appeared to be an RV Show with several display units on the grounds. They provide one 24 hour unit of free Wi-Fi. It is close to Sutters Creek and a wonderful little museum in Lone. Nice grassy area to walk pets. We would stay here again but probably for just one night as the price is a little expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park operators were extremely friendly and helpful. They even had a barbeque dinner on Saturday night for a slight charge. The site was easy to back into and had plenty of room. We would definitely camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff is what really sets this park apart. They are WONDERFUL. Very helpful and friendly. The best we have ever experienced! The grounds are well maintained, clean restrooms and showers, and the central campfire is a great place to meet your neighbors! We can't wait to go back! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Prior reviews are correct, good campground. Their 'senior discount' is better than Good Sam. WiFi and cable TV worked great. All back-in sites, #50 through #61 are the most level with gravel, roomy and some with shade. Rest rooms and showers were clean, but only one shower (each) for entire campground. Very quiet at night, office open until 6pm in summer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a great RV park near Columbia State Historic Park. It is only 1/2 mile walking distance to State Park. Wi-Fi was not working when we visited, but the technician was to get things fixed June 2. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We camped with 16 other rigs that are members of the Golden State Travelers of the Carriage Travel Club. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a well located park within walking distance of the historic city of Columbia. The walk is around 1/2 mile. Situated in a forest type setting you can while away some time here enjoying just the park. We used our stay to explore Jamestown, Sonora, Murphy's, and Angels Camp. And of course we went into Columbia every day on foot. The town of Columbia is a State park. It is a collection of brick buildings from the gold rush days and offers history, good food, hotels, and a nice theater. We went to see a very good production of a musical about Hank Williams when we were there. We loved the town of Murphy's too. Be sure to visit the Ironstone Winery to see a huge/giant gold nugget and wonderful gardens. The owners/managers of this RV Park could not have been nicer. They were very attentive to our needs and always had a smile on the faces. My one small niggle is no heat in the mens shower area. Kind of cold in April. Very good free WiFi, but cell phone did not work. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We liked site No. 54 which is great for shade and privacy. We planned for two nights and extended to four to visit Sonora, Angels Camp and Murphys. Outlaws BBQ and Steakhouse in Sonora is excellent and the owner is very friendly. Eat at Cruscos Italian restaurant in Angels Camp and visit the Laraine Winery on Hwy 49 (owner is a Hollywood Movie Producer) on the way to Murphys. Lavender Hills Winery in Murphys has an outstanding Calaveras Blanc which typifies all of the Calaveras Winerys in the region (20+ in the County!). The campground is a bit tight for big rigs: back in only. The camp managers were excellent hosts and made our stay with cell phone directions along the way. We'd return again. The Columbia Historic Park is a hoot with lots of fun saloons, stores and live theater! Highly recommend 3-4 days to roam the winding roads, but forget about driving a big rig down Hwy 49 from Grass Valley or Hwy 50 out of Placerville. We didn't know any better and tried part of it. Ugh! Enjoy and give our best regards to the hosts! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Clean, very friendly owners and staff, greeted us as we pulled in, and helped us park. Staff was very informative about the local area and history. This RV park fits right into the rustic environment, which is exactly what we were looking for while visiting this area, but has all the necessary modern amenities you need and is a piece of gold country history in itself. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This was our very first experience with our brand new tent trailer and we could not have been at a better place!! The people were INCREDIBLY friendly. They helped me park the tent trailer (something I have never done before). Lots of smiles. We enjoyed their hospitality. The park is incredibly clean. The location is nice and close to Columbia. I can not wait to return to 49er RV. You will NOT be disappointed. Please go see them!! I am estimating the nightly rate -- call them. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Nice clean park. About half of the place is permanent Mobile Homes up the hill from the overnighters. Very friendly and helpful hosts at check in and during our stay. Some of the sites are a little tight. We had an end site and had no one in our front yard. We even received a thank you card in the mail a few days after we came home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Spent 4 days here. As we pulled in the park office we were immediately greeted as they came out to greet us at our rig! Family owned and what nice and welcoming they are. They have a great little store and the staff was very friendly. Ton's to see and do. We were close enough to walk to state park. They have a great flea market at the fairgrounds in Sonora on Saturdays. Yhe park has lights that make the grounds so you can talk evening walks w/pets. Would stay here again..Don't miss visitng the town of Murphy. We had winter senior rates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Really nice people,very helpful and gave us a nice site. Lots of permanent sites but they are up the hill and out of sight. There was a campfire meet with good songs and stories. Well worth a visit even if it is slightly difficult to get to, and lots to see in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very nice rustic park. Just what one would expect in the mountains. Sites are level, and easy to back into. Hookups are just where they should be. Clubhouse is very nice and has a wonderful if not overworked woodstove. Grounds are kept neat and clean. Dog walk is well groomed. The staff is what sets this park apart from many others. They are fabulous. They truly do bring added value to the camping experience. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park was clean, staff friendly and helpful. It was evident that people live there as well as overnighters.The evenings were quiet and comfortable. Nothing much to do in the area. Sonora is just minutes away if you like tourist trap shopping. A little tough to navigate to the park itself. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice park. A little difficult to get to pulling a 36 ft fifth wheel. Small roads with lots of turns. The sites are fairly small and not easy to pull into. We stayed in site 49. It was okay but had it been really hot you would have no shade. Sites 74 and 73 would be a great choice for access and shade. Short walk to Columbia, which is a great town. Lots of activities We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Good location for many attractions within Columbia and Jamestown. This campground is next to the Columbia Heritage State Park, which includes many attractions and restaurants. Park layout made some sites difficult to get in and out of. Trash cans were overfilling during our week stay. Many campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Campground staff was friendly, but this park needs some TLC. We suggest visiting the Jamestown Railtown and Columbia Heritage State Park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Due to the size of our motorhome were placed on the top tier of this terraced campground. It was easy to get in and out of but really a dirty place to park. Water was OK, the sewer hookups are, well, weird. Count 'em: 6 TV channels. There are no dog breed restrictions here and there is dog poop everywhere and barking dogs are a regular occurrence. There was quite a bit of trash on the ground that the groundskeepers would drive by and ignore. The Wi-Fi did not work at all and the office could only offer that sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. We won't be returning here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly staff, level gravel sites. The WiFi is great and includes a limited amount of cable channels. A little difficult to get to but we found it. Our site is shaded and very nice size. We would stay here again and used Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This rv park is one of the best I have ever stayed in, friendly and fun staff, lots of local activity, nearby Columbia old town within walking distance. scenery is beautiful, sites are accommodating. I can't say anything bad about this park :-) and very pet friendly! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our rate reflects the Passport America deal. However they do not honor Passport America on Friday or Saturday and do not take reservations for Passport America. We paid full price on Friday and Saturday (with a 10% senior discount) then got the half price deal on Sunday. This is a very nice park in easy walking distance of the state park in Columbia and a short drive to Sonora. WiFi was some of the best I've seen in a wide open park like this, really nice! The spaces are well apart from each other with a natural setting, no fences between spots. The spots are scattered around the park in a natural setting - very nice. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Even though we had arrived 20 minutes after their normal hours, the lady stayed to let us know how to find out which sites would be available in case we were going to be there for more than one night. Pool looked inviting, bathrooms were exceptionally clean. Unfortunately, most of the sites were not level and what little gravel that was on the site was very large which made it hard to use leveling blocks without damaging them, otherwise the park would have rated higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is Passport America rate. The campground is average. The shade was nice but this is a rustic campground and is not fancy. However for a one or two night stay it was fine. I wouldn't stay for anything longer. The cable TV did not work since they had been flooded recently and it wasn't fixed yet. They did not tell us this before we setup. There was no cell coverage where we were. Overall just OK - not great but not horrible either. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites in lower section are really close together and in gravel. Many spacious sites too including some pull-throughs on the upper levels; they are on asphalt roadways and have concrete pads with picnic tables. Tenters are in a separate area. Grounds seem well maintained for an old park. I didn't see any permanent or cluttered units. The laundry is in terrible condition; dirty and cluttered with two sets of machines; being shared by staff for cabin rental laundry. Clean and dirty laundry piled everywhere. The laundry facility is open just 6 hours daily and is too pricy for the condition it's in. Our price reflects CampClub USA 50% discount. We'd stay here again but not use the laundry. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 3 nights, had a wonderful site, totally enjoyed our stay and the staff. The cable TV was as others have said, just a few stations but there was enough for us. The staff was excellent and we thought the campground offered a great variety of campsites that weren't all crammed in together. It's located on a fascinating piece of land with the quarry and lots of odd limestone formations. It's not a resort but more of a campground, which we prefer, since we mainly camp at state parks. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We enjoyed our time here. Would definitely stay here again. Sites are gravel and level. Did not need our jacks. Quiet with mature trees and trails surround the park. The office staff and owners were exceptionally friendly. Rustic not primitive. Plenty of nature for kids to enjoy. Not an 'amusement park.' Park is old; however, it is clean, roomy, and they are upgrading it. Short walk to the historic town of Columbia. Had several deer come to visit during our stay. WiFi was good. Had some trouble with the cable TV when we first pulled in and they fixed it in less than 5 minutes: with a smile. The cable TV only has 4 channels. Showers are clean. Better allow 10-15 minutes for the heat to run before you use the shower. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A little muddy in winter. Office closes at 5. Very nice staff, made us feel welcome. Only a few cable channels. Walking distance to Columbia State Park. Saw deer more than once from our campsite. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Do NOT take Rte 49 from Rte 199. What a mistake: it's a treacherous road for big rig. It's 59 from 199. DH wrote down incorrect info, and we drove an hour up and down mountains with tight curves and steep descents. However, helpful friendly staff, level site but no satellite reception due to trees. Was very busy on the weekend, so we couldn't change sites. CG has family friendly amenities (pool, horseshoes, shuffleboard, volleyball), nearby golf, horsedrawn carriages in Columbia, so there's kids-a-plenty. Bathrooms very clean and bright. Near Sonoma, a great little town. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a nice private site with plenty of shade. We had the opportunity to visit the park a month prior to out stay and hand-picked the site for our motorhome. We knew we would like it. We did not like the looks of the coral area because the sites seemed pretty close together and offered little privacy. We know we would not like to stay in that area. It looks like it would be good for groups though. The park has many a friendly family atmosphere with volleyball, shuffleboard, horse shoe pits and other grassy areas to play in. Small pool but which we did not use but those in the pool seem to be having a lot of fun. The staff was helpful and friendly. We will be back. This park and the site will be a regular on our list of weekend treks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed one night at this park. Spaces are tight for larger rigs with slides, can be dusty with any traffic. The park is very close to the Columbia state park. The staff was helpful. Family oriented park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an old RV park near Columbia. Very convenient if you plan on visiting here. Park is in a pretty setting, but sites are very close together and units with slideouts may have difficulties. We also noticed rigs having to back out of their sites to get out. We were in #29 with full hookups. It was very crowded and the site next to us made it impossible to park our truck without it being literally at our door. Very few upgrades over the years as owners have had the place for over 30 years. While the setting is nice, I would not recommend it for big rigs or large trailers. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped at this beautiful campground. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful site. The nice - short - walk to the historical state park of Columbia was great. The staff was courteous and friendly. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Rate is a combination of full price weekend and a special off season: 'pay for 2, get 3 free' midweek rate. We were staying for a week and this was less expensive than the normal weekly rate and was suggested by the RV park to save us money, which we thought was a nice way of doing business. Most sites are back-in and while we were on a hillside, the pads were all terraced and level. Satellite reception was good, WiFi was available in the office. Has asphalt/gravel roads and gravel pads. A trail leads from the park to Columbia State Park which makes for easy sightseeing. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was our maiden voyage, so to speak, having just purchased our first RV (a travel trailer). The host was friendly, the grounds appeared laid out well to my admittedly unpracticed eye. I appreciated the availability of a pull-through site, although they charged an additional $4 for it. The site was level and the grounds in general were clean. A few deer wandered through the park in the early morning. I heard no highway noise at all while I was here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Great location, friendly staff, nice little store and withing walking distance to Columbia State Park that has stores, gold panning, stagecoach rides, restaurants, bars, groceries etc. Close to Sonora. Sites close and on dirt but with full hookups. Busy park during holidays even in winter. Have camped here many times and will be back. Lots to do nearby. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is in a beautiful place but the spots are not very level. We also found the hookups to be rather inconvenient for us. However the people running the campground couldn't be nicer and the Columbia Ghost Town is just a very short walk and has some great restaurants. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Pros: Quiet, comfortable, lots of shade, close to Columbia State Park, level site with plenty of room. Deer walked into the site next to us and 5 of them were on the volleyball court. Staff was friendly and helpful. Cons: Bathrooms were worn but clean. Only a couple of cable TV channels came in well, and a couple more with static. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good pool and group areas. Shady and flat in most places so it's easy to get your rig in. The hookups were a little old. The pool was great and I like to visit the town of Columbia. This is a better place for kids. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed for only one night while visiting a friend in the area but enjoyed this park because it is attractive and quiet, and we had a nicely shaded pull-through site. It had 50-amp service which we needed for the A/C because it was hot. As the name implies it is in a former rock quarry: relics of which in the form of large blocks of stone are scattered throughout. This is an older park but seems to be well maintained, although we did not examine or use any of the facilities. There is supposed to be Wi-Fi available but it was unusable from our site, as was our Verizon Air Card. Overall it was a pleasant stay. We will go there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean, shady grounds. The grounds are conducive for walking pets. Management and staff are friendly. Columbia State Park is just a short walk away and well worth the walk. Their pull through spaces are a nice size. I had room for slideouts and an awning. The only bad things are the mosquitoes and yellow jacket wasps. We had a great time for two weeks. Their pool is nice and clean, but could be bigger to accommodate all guests. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were lucky enough to get one of the sites that was a little bit wider (#57), as many of the sites are wedged in with little or no room between rigs. Memorial Day was completely sold out, but the staff was still attentive and courteous. Very convenient location with a nature trail right into Columbia State Park (get the trail guide from the office for $1.99). No open campfires, so bring your own pit or rent one from the office ($10/day with a $25 deposit). We especially liked the Ice Cream Social on Saturday, where $1.50 got us two generous scoops! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean, family friendly campground. Quiet in the evening. Beautiful surroundings and easy walk to Historic Columbia. Only thing that keeps us from rating it a 10 is that there was no internet access, which we needed as AT&T cellular coverage was poor in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for two nights. The first space was so uneven that we staggered all evening trying to stay upright. We moved the next morning to a wonderful shaded site. This is within walking distance of the State Park and is absolutely worthwhile to visit. We watched the video in the museum and enjoyed the whole tour. Not a lot of people in the RV park as it was during week-day and school was in session. I'm sure during the Summer, this is crowded. Nice place to walk pets. We had a doe right outside of our front door, nearly scared our cat to death. We would camp here again during the Fall months. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is centrally located for area attractions, and staff is friendly. Pull throughs can be a problem to to get into and out of, especially if the park is full. I would consider back-in site in lower part of park. Very little grass for pets. Has poor cable TV reception, and no WiFi at site are reasons I didn't rate higher. WiFi is available at the office. We became friendly with other RV'ers who have spent a lot of time in the Columbia/Sonora area and they rate this RV Park the highest. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Older park with friendly hosts. Bathrooms clean but could use sprucing up. Great location within walking distance of Columbia State park. We camped in October during the week and stayed 3 nights for the price of two, a great value. Very quiet and shaded. Nicely located for day trips to Sonora, Tuolumne, Twain Harte and Angel's Camp. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good family park with horseshoes, tetherball, volleyball and badminton. The pool was only open one of the three days we were there. Daily newspaper comes to the office. Mostly gravel spots with a little grass. Very shady for the most part, sat users may have a problem. About 12 channels on the cable TV. Walking distance to Columbia State Park. We liked the park and will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I like country style parks. This is one of those. It is not fancy, but I enjoyed it. Easy trail to Columbia State park. The marble quarry was fascinating. We were allowed to have a campfire in our washtub. Although there are lots of trees, I got lucky and was able to get Satellite with my roof mounted dish. They do not claim WiFi, but I was able to get it sometimes at my campsite 46. Used Passport America for a GREAT price. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice family park, on weekends the management provide ice cream social and local musician to sing campfire songs. Small store in office with a few necessaries. A short walk to Columbia State Park, we saw a play at the local play house, it was very enjoyable and reasonably priced. A great place for breakfast or sandwich is Billy's Wiskers. A limited number of pull-through's for larger units, most spaces are back in. Get good directions, GPS will try to take you through the State Park roads which have no vehicle traffic. We will return next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an attractive park with many trees. We especially liked the "executive" site we were assigned. With our 42' rig, access was somewhat of a challenge due to a tight turn around the park office. We had to take a longer route through the park and turn around to reach our assigned site. The park was located within easy walking distance to Columbia State Park in the heart of the California Gold Country. I would stay at this campground again, should the opportunity arise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
When calling around for a last minute camping destination I was greeted by a very friendly voice at Marble Quarry RV Park. Both husband and wife team at the park were very accommodating. I was given one site when making the reservation and camped at this site the first night. The next morning I asked if I could go into another site since I felt sandwiched into the original site. I was given the available open sites and chose the one I liked the best. The swimming pool was a bit small for the size of the park but kept relatively clean. There are plenty of shaded sites and the trail into Columbia State Park was very well marked. I went into the ladies room just before leaving on the 4th of July. The room has 3 showers stalls and 3 toilet stalls. I was surprised it was as clean as it was with all the traffic that went in and out all weekend long. My site was right above the office building in direct site of the restrooms. I would give this place a 10 if they were to offer Wi-Fi. Cell coverage is very spotty but that is no fault of the park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. If it rains, stay away. There is mud all around and in the winter they won't open the lower section which is all gravel and you can avoid the mud. Also, if you have a satellite dish, you cannot get reception because of the high trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice and quiet older park. A little tough to get around the trees and the sites are a little too close together. Restrooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Nice walking trail to Columbia State Historic Park. Sites were all graveled. Cable TV was a little lacking with only about 8 channels and not too clear. Quiet nights. Good play area for kids. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
