I read the other reviews with some trepidation before finally deciding to come.
This is a perfectly paved, well-groomed park. I did not come into any conflict with the rule enforcer, if there is someone by that description.
The only small disadvantage is the distant local traffic noise on one side and the busy small airport on the other. - LarryJohnston

We camped here in tent for 3 days during the Labor Day weekend. The park is very well managed with clean restrooms and showers. This site has a swimming pool and kids really enjoyed it. There's a pond within the campground. Kids did fished and left the fishes in pond. Overall good experience and hassle free. - Abhi

This park advertises that it has gone green with solar. Its true they have a massive solar array. The management does a great job of keeping this park clean and neat. The pool and hot tub are awesome! - juustright

This is a beautiful, country setting campground. My older children go often with their friends and spend fun time together. It offers it all: swimming, boating, fishing, etc. - abijjeli

Campground is not as bad as I had read. The lake was way down and very muddy. It was 7 miles to fuel and a small town. Sites do have some shade but are not level. There are limited rest rooms: kind of clean with no showers. Noisy after 10! We stayed in the RV section and it was more tame then the tent sites. We wouldn't come back. - Tredguy

We had so much fun at Orchard Springs. The camp hosts were very friendly and helpful, and there are so many activities. We can't wait to go back this summer. - heidi m

Park is nice and have stayed there several times. The last time was the worst. Unfortunately, the park staff do not make any attempt enforce quiet hours. The people at a nearby site were loud and vulgar. We cut our stay short and left after only one night (we were scheduled to stay three nights). I do not recommend this site for people with families or if you want quiet at night, since the rules are not enforced. Also if you have an RV greater than 35 feet, it will be very difficult to maneuver into many spaces. - Hal DeVera

This campground is very quiet ...that's because it's a zillion miles down a squirrelly road. The pluses is that the sites are huge and wooded, and there is a nice lake nearby. Despite expectations, most of the sites are not lake front...you pretty much have to drive. No hookups. The good news is that we paid just $17 with PPA. But since this was an overnight for us, next time we'll pick something closer to the road. - the5reeds

We workamped her for several months. It is primitive camping at its best. Very peaceful camp operated by family oriented owners. This is not the place to party! The park is almost surrounded by Rollins Lake. There is a day use area and a boat ramp. It is rustic, but has a nice general store which carries everything you may have forgotten at home! The town of Grass Valley is 30 minutes away. - tworootless

We spent Labor Day Weekend. Lots of wooded area on Rollins Lake. Saw a couple of deer come by the campsite one night. Great place. It has a marina to launch boats and for swimming, a small grocery store. We will be going back. - The traveler

This park could really use some help. The sites are muddy and not level. It was quiet, that's about all the good I can say. There is a small lake near the campground and there are MANY geese here and there is goose poop EVERYWHERE. You can hardly step out of the RV without stepping in it! Our dog was in heaven! The grass was long and hadn't been mowed for quite a while. There was only 20 and 50 amp service (no 30?) The price was very high for what you got and they even wanted to charge you $10 for a picnic table! It is nice to be able to walk around the nice fairgrounds when there is nothing going on there. We had to wait for the camp host to return for quite a while when we arrived since she was on a break and just had a sign which read "back in a few minutes". Our reservations were a little messed up. They gave our reserved site to someone else so we really didn't know where to go. This park needs more organization and definitely more maintenance. Could be really nice with some TLC. - Eagle4

Very nice setting. Trees, small lake and very close to Grass Valley. Has full hook ups but we on occasion dry camp. There's lots of great places to do that. Many tall pine trees so if dish is important let them know. They know the hook up sites that work.
If you want a picnic table, they rent at $10. - Bobcat1

Pretty campground, we chose open space so we could receive satelite tv. Wifi worked very well. Mgr. was extremely helpful in choosing our site and handling a special request for us. We would camp here again. - Phoenixaway

I recently took a camping trip to Rollins Lake, where I stayed at Greenhorn campground. It was very beautiful until we noticed all the trash left behind by other campers. After we cleaned things up, we started setting up camp. It was my birthday that weekend so we were expecting guests to arrive. Near the end of our setting up, my 10 year daughter had to use the restroom. We walked to the nearest bathroom to find it locked. When we went to use the water faucet, we discovered that the water had also been turned off. There were no signs indicating that these things were not available, and we were still charged the full season rate of one hundred and sixty dollars: two sites for two nights with one chihuahua weighing in at about one and a half pounds, to camp with us. To whom it may concern, I think people should be warned about Greenhorn Campground. - heidi m

Agree with the previous review. Wifi is now available for $10 per day, and it only works near the store. - morganhillers
Aug 2006 - $35.00
Mediocre campground in a beautiful location on the shore of Lake Rollins. Sites are gravel or dirt, waterfront sites may require lots of leveling. Store is well stocked, staff friendly. Could be a 10 with work to the sites, installation of electric and sewer hook-ups. - morganhillers

As 1000Trails members, we just pay the upgrade fee to park along the river. Let's face it, this is a run down park and the potholed and crumbling roads have gotten worse over the 4 years we've visited.
So why stay? It's the river. The whitewater rushing buy makes a wonderful background noise and the view up the grassy slopes is beautiful, especially at sunset.
Most of the staff is friendly, as are the fulltimers.
Some of the turns are a bit tight, especially the right turn you need to make to go to the river front sites. But there are plenty of 40' motorhomes like ours and big 5th wheels that make it work. - TahoeWino

The staff is very friendly, the activities for the kids are great, the pool is very well kept.
The river is close to the campsites. The bathrooms are very well kept on weekdays, but are trashed on weekends.
There was a (female) staff member that was hateful and very rude to multiple campers. Other than her, we had a great stay and will be going back. - Just Passing through 2015

Have camped here even before Thousand Trail took over. Do not travel to this park from I-80 Auburn via rt 49, as it is super difficult to navigate.
The roads that are ''paved" in the park are in very bad shape with lots of pot holes. There has been some improvement in the gravel sections.
There are a variety of sites available: river front, semi-wooded field, up on a small hill.
There is a reasonably nice restaurant that has opened at the gate to the park and a short walk across the road leads to others. The park has a small pool and a small beach along the river.
This park has a serious problem with electric shortages. Have lost an a/c due to low amps and the park strongly suggests running your 'frig on gas. Many sites have no power at all, a situation I have not seen improve in 6+ years. We had a sewer hookup, and there is a dump station behind the restaurant or $25. honey wagon by appt.
Seems ELS/Thousand Trails does not return any of one's membership fees for upkeep and relies on "long -term" site rentals, a disturbing trend for the last few years. - Dip1Dip1

Dust and dirt. The restrooms were not cleaned very often and were dirty. The park is right on the river and if you are there to tube, should be good. If not, don't stay there except maybe one night to visit Marshall gold discovery park and visitor center. The road into the park is very twisty and not worth doing unless you want to stay and tube the river. Constant stream of tubers going down the river and then back up through the campground to start over again. IF YOU ARE NOT THERE TO TUBE-DON'T GO. - Phoenixaway

I stayed here with a group, so rate is reflective of this. Overall, this is a nice park. We were there when a school group was there and it was not a problem except not being able to use a hall during one day (we were told it was ours Thurs.-Sun). At my site (E), the power could only be accessed by literally lying on my stomach...and then having to use levelers so that the plug stayed in! The campground was very focused on building new cabins...would like to have seen more effort in removing the mud! Front desk were very nice. - nicholsm

We had a river site. The site was a back in, flat, level, dirt site with water and electric. There are no sites with sewer on the river. Getting across the one way bridge, with a 13'6" height limit from Highway 49 was the toughest part of the drive. Verizon is the only cell carrier that seemed to work in the park. Parts of the park were closed for periods of time due to school programs and a wedding. There was a dump station available when leaving. WiFi was free, and slow, but it worked. - travelcouple

This "resort" is lost somewhere in the '60's. It may have been wonderful when it was first opened however it is severely run down. There are very few full hookup sites and there are none with 50 amp service. Given the extreme temperature changes in this area, it made for an uncomfortable stay. But perhaps the two most disturbing things were the $10.00 extra per person AFTER two campers and the deplorable condition of the shower/restrooms. Almost everywhere we camp today does not charge for additional people until AFTER four campers. We were shocked that we had to pay 60.00 dollars extra (three days) for our eight and ten year grandsons!! On the other hand, this is a great place for tent campers by the American River. But, keep in mind, this is NOT a camper friendly management. It's as though it's a hobby for them and frankly, the only person I saw really working was the guy emptying the trash cans. Sorry, we camped here once before (about two years) because of the catch & release pond and thought we'd give it another try. Jury is in, won't be back. - J. Kohl

This place was awesome! We were nervous because of the reviews we read but they were so wrong. If you were being out of line then, yes, don't go there, but it was nice, safe, and clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. The campsites are a little challenging so when the young lady at the counter ask you if you want to look first, do it. My husband has awesome skills with our trailer but if you don't this could get a little hairy. We would go there again and make this our new summer spot! We also went on the holiday weekend and had no problems with electricity or shortages. - juanitae

Clean resort on The American River. We camped here just after the end of rafting season so it was almost empty and quiet. Might be different during rafting season as two rafting companies have their base inside the park. Site was fairly level once we backed in. That was a chore. since the site was terraced on a steep road that we had to back up on. Very nice view of river. Store had almost no supplies. Good location near gold discovery park. - castleshade
