We agree with previous posts, the staff is great at this RV park. The sites can be tough to get into, and they direct you into your site. The hookups are well located. The road into the park is narrow but it is no real problem. On Friday night they had free hot dogs, also coffee every morning. The park itself is probably a 7 but with the extra service we raised it to an 8. Nice quiet park, we will return. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Motorhome.Undo

Had a flat, level, gravel, back-in site. Staff made it easy to park. Sites have two sewer hookups so you could choose the most convenient option. Wi-Fi worked well. Nice picnic table in site. Free coffee each morning and free chili fogs on Friday night. Nice campfire program. Staff constantly asked if they could do anything to make our stay nicer. Use driving direction on web site. GPS not aware of closed streets due to Columbia State Park. Very nice park. Only down side was no good spots to take dog on walk due to narrow, windy road. Would definitely stay again.

Great hospitality by staff and good location for many sites to do and see around area (Columbia, Jamestown, Murphy's, Big Trees, etc.). Some of campground is on hillside so getting into tight spots can be tricky but staff is great in helping you into your spot. Showers/bathrooms could use upgrading (hot water takes awhile to work (esp. in men's). Have free grilled hot dogs on Friday night, nightly campfire get togethers with a singer, & free gold panning lessons. Would stay here again. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We enjoyed our stay here very much. We had a choice spot, but we spent most of our time with family. The location was rough, I was raised in this area so we didn't have trouble finding it, but I can tell those who are not to follow directions carefully. Driving around these hills with a trailer not knowing where to go can stress some people - so just plan ahead. The management was terrific, very friendly. We needed help to park our trailer as the campground was full and a SUPER TRAILER PARKING GURU was there to help! They offer a lot for campers with children (game room/barn) lots of room to roam. They also had campfire and a guitar/singer one night. Highly recommend this campground. Columbia has a lot to offer, something for everyone to see. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Once we located the park had a great time. Follow the directions on the web site very carefully. We had a hard time finding the park, but the manager actually came out to find us. Several roads to take in make it confusing. All other aspects of our stay were 10+. Great management and staff always trying to help, including parking our 5th wheel. Tell management ahead of time if you plan to use a Sat. Dish as there are limited sites with clearance. Ours worked great. I would definitely get a reservations in the spring and summer since there are limited short term sites. This is definitely the best park in the area. We really enjoyed the park and there are tons of things to to do in the area. Will be back next winter/spring. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

I have been RVing full time since August, 2011 and this has been one of my favorite stays. I stayed here three months and and found the place to be great for long term and short term RVers. The installed FIOS super fast internet, a must for full timers. The property has a lot of character with a rustic feel. They host camp fires with period entertainment. Full hook ups with strong 50 amp service. I found the staff to be very helpful in solving my issues. The location is walking distance to the historic gold rush town of Columbia and is an easy drive to Yosemite National Park. I will definitely be a repeat guest. Rate was based on monthly stay plus electricity. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Motorhome.Undo

This was a very nice campground run by very nice people. Although there weren't very many camp sites for travelers, most of the permanents were up in another place, so they weren't an issue. It is a great campground for visiting Columbia and Jamestown. The bathrooms/showers were adequate, but needing an upgrade. We paid using our PPA membership...their standard rate of $49 is way too much. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.Undo

A little too tight for big rigs. Only a few sites can really accommodate the 45 footers. Some of these sites are not level. The bathrooms are ancient but functional. The staff is terrific but the campground is a bit tired. Great place for smaller rigs. Close to the main Columbia area. If you have a big rig you may want to consider camping at the Sonora Fairgrounds. We will not camp here again only because it was a bit too tight. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Motorhome.Undo

This campground has a few sites for short-term camping, but most of the sites are used by permanent residents. This was a distraction from the "camping" experience we enjoy. The staff was friendly and helpful. The campground was clean. The restroom and laundry room are a bit shabby. The restroom and shower area are not heated. Most of the campsites do not afford any privacy. We will likely stay elsewhere the next time we visit this area. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.Undo

What a nice place to visit! The staff/owner were by far the friendliest that we have ever encountered. The area offers many places to see, the town of Murphys is just a short hop down the road, along with the quaint town of Columbia. We will definitely return to this adorable, friendly, clean rv park.

Love this place. Very quite, perfect for us. People are friendly. We will repeat for sure! It's a small place with a dirt road. Host will help you to your spot and guide you in. There is a free BBQ on Friday night. They also have a gold panning class you can take. Again we had a great time. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Really enjoyed this park. The owners are great with lots of local history and information. Our site was spacious and private - kind of an unusual site with a rock wall on 2 sides. Highly recommend this RV park. It is a bit tight getting into and out of spots. There are long term campers, but they are in separate area. The area is very neat also.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The park is very clean and the spaces are nice sized. They do not have individual campfires in each site, instead they have a general-area campfire each night and everyone is invited. You can walk to the town and spend a day there, fun for kids. The RV park also has some gold-mining demonstration and overall it's a very nice park. It is pet friendly too. It has very nice owners/operators. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Motorhome.Undo

Their website is misleading!! This is a tiered, full time trailer park cut into a steep hillside with a few RV sites near the road on an open gravel patch. We did not check-in because it was completely unappealing in every way. We camped at 49er RV Ranch in a Motorhome.Undo
