Classic Family Camping at American River Resort

American River Resort is a private campground on 30 private acres in beautiful Coloma Valley. We're easy to find, our rates are good and reservations are easy.

American River Resort - Kids love us!

Family Camping is Our Specialty!

Many campers have been coming to ARR since they were kids. Some are now bringing their own children. Family camping is our most valued tradition at ARR. We appreciate and are honored by your trust in sharing this experience with us.

Everything families like about camping is here plus a few extras like free hot showers, a fishing pond and a small convenience store in our lodge.

Families also like that we have campground rules and that we actively help our guests follow them, providing a safe environment for kids and for everyone. 


Campsite availability is best if you make reservations early. Weekends are great, but we encourage you to come a day early or stay a day longer to get the most out of your camping experience. Mid-week stays are really the best! Things quiet down around here, and you're likely to nab the best sites.
