Coloma Resort Campground Review

Coloma Resort is a campground located on the South Fork of the American River in Coloma, California. We recently stayed at an RV campsite at the resort, so this is our real life Coloma Resort Campground Review.

About Coloma Resort

6921 Mt Murphy Rd, Coloma, California 95613

(800) 238-2298

Coloma Resort campground is centrally located in the sierra foothills, near some of the best white water and mountain biking experiences. It is also located near the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, wineries, orchards, etc.

The resort features tent, RV and cabin camping, something for everyone. Note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, specific types of camping may be limited or not provided at all, so you should call the resort to confirm.

The resort normally provides kid friendly activities such as a ropes course, gold panning, nature scavenger hunt, nature art, etc. But, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, their normal activities may not be provided, so you should all the resort to confirm what is offered when you visit.

Our Stay

We stayed 3 nights and 4 days. We noticed a lot of travel trailers and motorized recreational vehicles, but the cabins appear to be unoccupied and there were no tent campers. So, we thought it was a nice amount of people, not too crowded.

We didn’t have any contact with staff due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but when we needed something they were quick to respond. We ran out of firewood, so we texted the staff, they charged my credit card and dropped off the firewood. We never saw or spoke with any staff in person. Great service!

Our Campsite

We stayed in an RV campsite on the river, it had electricity and water hookups. Check out my article 3 types of campsites you’ll find at campgrounds for more information about the different types of campsites.

The RV campsite that we stayed at was a little on the narrow side for our preference. We prefer campsites that are wider and have trees or bushes between campsites.

But, being on the river and having access to the river from the campground was terrific! We enjoyed hearing the river at the campsite. And we enjoyed walking the kids down to the river to play.

Local Attractions

We visited the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park during the day, it was a beautiful park with historical buildings and such. The park also has access to the American river, so we did some fishing and caught some pike!

My Thoughts

My family enjoyed our stay at Coloma Resort, the kids really liked the campground river access as well as the river access at the state park. Kids love the water. Our stay at the campground was nice and we had no issues. Again, the RV campsites were a little close together for our preference and if the campground was full to capacity including RV, cabin and tent campers, it could be too crowded for our preference. But, we had a nice stay and will probably visit again in the future.

I hope you found my Coloma Resort Campground Review helpful, happy camping!
