Camp Lotus is a small campground, right on the American River in a very scenic setting. Large sites, well spaced apart. No gravel pad— just dirt- and ours did require some leveling. Site had a picnic table & fire ring, 30 Amp service & water. Restrooms are clean but a bit rustic. LouAnne greeted us and was very friendly and helpful. This is a wonderful spot for those who want peace & quiet. NO dogs are allowed. Great place for those wanting to fish or kayak on the river. Short drive (8 min) to Coloma & gold rush state park. The store here has a few basic amenities. We loved it and would definitely come back.
