23 RV Parks near Auburn, California
Jun 2017 - $59.00
We stayed here for 2 nights. The location was perfect for us. From here we were able to sight see in Nevada City, Grass Valley, and historic downtown Auburn which has a number of very interesting and fun museums. We were also very near a nice grocery store, Target and restaurants. The park was very clean and quiet. The site we had was a bit tight but we were able to manage. There are a number of what appeared to be permanent/long term campers. - scaddle

This little park is a jewel. It's always clean and well kept. The staff is very helpful and well trained. They truly enjoy working here. The owners are ready to maintain and update when necessary. My wife had to have emergency surgery and the management helped us to change our reservations. Had they not done this, I don't know where we have gone. The location is amazing. An hour from Tahoe, a half hour to Sacramento, two hours to San Francisco and more. It's just outstanding to stay here and be able to take off to so many places. Nice pool, spa, showers and restrooms and cute club house. I have read some bad reviews and that confuses me. I would highly recommend Gold Country in Auburn, California to anyone. There is also some great tent camping areas away from the rigs. A really enjoyable place to stay. m - roger maurice smith

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

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 stayed here one night because it was only 4 miles from a truck service center we needed to be at the following morning. We would not stay here again. Train horns felt like they were on top of us. We couldn't get the men's restroom unlocked. The women's restroom had water backed up in the sinks. This is a permanent park, but we didn't have any issues with that. People we encountered in the office and elsewhere were friendly. Our site was a pull-thru at an end. It worked for us for one night. - Neil and JoAnn

I know this place is suppose to be improving but it's a mess. Too many permanent RV's that haven't moved in years with trash scattered all over. The rules state 2 vehicles per site, the one across from me had 4. Way too many trees and all need trimming. I paid for a pull-through site but I had to back out because of the cars and trees in the way. The place is usable and that's about all I can say for it. - Dennis_K

This is an old RV park with lots of what appears semi permanent residents, but no problems, tight spaces, but overall very pleased. First, not many RV Park choices this area, so we took a chance. It is very quiet despite being packed. No unrowdy behavior. Sure you can hear the occasional train, but so what? The laundry and sites are kept clean. Gravel site, tight but level. Good 50 Amp, water, etc. Convenient to the freeway I 80. They have made a lot of progress from way back. Filled most days we are here. Give them a try sometime, it's not a luxury place but they are doing their best. Good Sam discount only on separate days, they have a weekly discount rate. - Pat and Jerry

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

Nice clean family park on Rollins Lake, has bar/ restaurant, general store, marina, a full service resort with a friendly staff. - bigjc1956
May 2009 - $30.00
Dirty and dusty. Boat trailers parked on the side of the road everywhere. Hard to drive a RV with so many trailers all over the place. Party campground. "Gang Activity" Fights in the campground next to us. Must of been 30 people in the one campsite. Bathrooms smelled bad and were dirty. Trash on the ground by the dumpsters.Motor Cycles riding through the campground all night long. Management would not give us our money back when we left after first night. Scary Place ! Manager had a beer in his hand at 8:00 AM when we left. - sundancer270

Overall this campground was decent - I would call it average. It is easy to access while towing a trailer and not far from the freeway (but not TOO close) and close to the small town of Colfax. The main use of this campground seemed to be for boating - there were a large number of boat trailers everywhere! The electrical hookups in the main loop (designated E1 - E13) were standard household 15 amps, and our site was more than 50 ft from the nearest water spigot. The smallish beach was nice, although it dropped off into deep water very quickly. There is a restaurant/grill and boat rentals store right next to it. The sites were large with plenty of tall trees (mostly oaks) for shade. The dump station was adequate. We did see other RV sites that had 30 amp + water hookups, but they were all in a row like a parking lot on the main road and near the restaurant. Cons: Despite lots of room, the place still felt crowded due to lack of shrubs or low-growing trees, narrow roads, and many extra vehicles parked along the roads. It was quite loud and we did not see a single chipmunk, deer, or other wildlife in the campground. There was no easy walking access to the lake due to steep slopes. - Kelrhys

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

We live in town so we just stayed there to check everything out before heading out on a long trip. The fairgrounds are beautiful and our site had a view of the lake. The sites are gravel with full hook ups, nothing fancy, but large with beautiful views. - Admiral II

We stayed 2 weeks and the area has had record rainfall for the winter and it showed in the park. Potholes everywhere to navigate around. The services were great and staff super friendly. - Tlcola2004

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

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
