2 Parks near Columbia, California
May 2016 - $43.00
Very nice park, our third time here. We stayed three nights, using this as a base to explore south to Jamestown and north to Amador City. Such a cute, rustic, atmospheric park, takes you back in time to the gold rush days. That said, they manage to keep it rustic and charming without it also being tacky and rundown. Sites are gravel; green around them is just mowed weeds, would almost be better to have more gravel and no green surfaces at all. The weeds have a lot of foxtails in them, which were an issue for our dogs. (Foxtails get stuck between toes, and if not found, work their way inside the dog, under the skin. Big hazard.) LOTS of trees, nice and shady; up a long road so you are pretty isolated; feels like real camping! Staff is very helpful and friendly; we were in a site on the hill, but had help getting in and getting out. - MarvMarvs

We were visiting historic Columbia, CA which is only .5 miles from this park. The staff were excellent. Each guest gets guided into their spot by two staff members, which is very helpful because the park is on a hill and some of the stalls are tricky to pull into.
Friday nights includes free BBQ hot dogs, beans, chips and a drink and s'mores around the campfire.
Our fee was based on our RPI membership. They also had a two nights for the price of one special which we purchased.
A small fenced dog area is available in the front of the park.
Prospectors can buy supplies and practice panning on-site. - G_Barbosa

We stopped here for a couple of nights to see the historic Columbia Village and explore Sonora. It was a good choice among the available parks as the sites were fine with good water/electric/cable and wifi and the folks were friendly. The bathrooms were clean but really minimal and in need of an upgrade. Sites were back in...took a little work to find the most level spot in the gravel and are pretty close together.
Good value for this section of the country and the nearby towns are well worth the visit. - Camaraderie

This park is in a great location. Easy access to local sites. The Park itself is dated. Needs updated cable and internet services. We would not stay here again. - R&M

Umm...the parking spot was fairly level. There was 30-amp electric hook-up. It was rustic and quiet That's about all the positive things I can think of.
They advertise cable, but it didn't work. When I asked about it, she said "good days, we can usually get 2 or 3 stations"! I was able to pull in CBS from the antenna, and a fuzzy Fox. The "pull thru" slot we were assigned wasn't, a 25-foot rig may have been able to maneuver in around the table and fire pit, but not our 40-footer. There was a combination store/office/shower/restroom at the entrance. Most spots are partially shaded, and there's plenty of space around some, others are crowded together. There's a walking trail to a disused marble quarry, maybe 5 minutes, but if you take a dog, he'll be covered in "sticky burrs" once you're done - I speak from experience! The park was not designed for big rigs; a couple of sharp bends, with nice big chunks of marble lining the road edges! - RV-Roamer

The park was fairly quiet, but the gravel sites were anything but level. The road to the park was very rough but short. The wi-fi worked well but the camp has the security set very high so that many sites were unusable, but that isn't always a bad thing. The staff was friendly and the park was clean, just make sure you have plenty of leveling blocks with you. I would stay at this park again. - pemnel
