Coloma Resort Campground Review

Coloma Resort is a campground located on the South Fork of the American River in Coloma, California. If you’re looking for RV campsites on the American River, then check out my real life Coloma Resort Campground Review.

Below is a brief video of our stay at Coloma Resort Campground:


Per the campground website, Coloma Resort campground is centrally located in the sierra foothills, near white water and mountain biking activities, the Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park, wineries, orchards and much more.

The resort features tent, RV and cabin campsites. When we visited, we saw full hookup and partial hook up RV sites. We stayed at a campsite on the river (electric and water connections) and while it was narrower than we prefer (see picture below), the view and sounds of the American River from our campsite more than made up for it.


The resort provides kid friendly activities such as a ropes course, gold panning, nature scavenger hunt, nature art, etc. And, it has a mini beach/wading area for the kids. Note, it’s not a sandy ocean type beach, it’s a dirt river beach, but our kids loved it and enjoyed playing in a small wading area (see pictures below). I tried fishing, but no luck and I lost a few lures.

Please call the campground and check the campground website for most updated information about campsites, amenities, activities, fees, rules, etc.

My Experience

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. When we needed something, the staff was quick to respond. We ran out of firewood, so we texted the staff, they charged my credit card and dropped off the firewood. Great service!

Local Activities

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 pikeminnows!

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 enjoyed my real life Coloma Resort Campground Review. Happy camping!
