Located just south of Angel’s Camp, CA, along California’s famous “Gold Country” Highway 49, and right in the heart of Mark Twain’s well-known “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”, lies a hidden gem of an RV Park.
Angel’s Camp RV Park was a place we discovered at the last moment, when suddenly the plans we had made for a few weeks of boondocking in the Sierra Foothills had fallen through. We had punched up RV parks on the Android Auto app inside of our pickup truck, and it recommended Angel’s Camp RV Park.
The office had just one spot available, and only because someone else who had booked it failed to show up for it. So, we got it for a week.
Parking spaces are tight inside the park, and the driveways are rather narrow. Most of the spaces are back-in, but we managed to get a pull-through. If you want the most shade, get a back-in space. You’ll find more shade trees.
Spaces are also gravel pads, and by no means level, but level enough to work with our existing scissor jacks.
Full hook ups, including 50 amp electricity, sewer hose, water, and cable TV.
During the weekends, this RV Park is packed. But during the week, it’s like a ghost town. If you’re a full timer, you’ll find lots of peace and quiet Sunday through Thursday.
Each space gets a fire pit and a picnic table.
There’s playground for the kids, including a pool. There’s a gazebo for big barbecues, and a hiking trail.
Bugs are pretty bad at night. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes. We did not, however, encounter ants coming into our trailer.
While we were there, temperatures got into the 90s. We were running our air conditioning most of the time during the day.
The park’s Wi-Fi is not easy to hook up to. Meanwhile, Verizon 4G was weak, but usable. There’s a Starbucks in Angel’s Camp, and was where I typically went to get serious website development work done.
