Three campgrounds, Mokelumne, Moore Creek and White Azalea, that offer free camping right on the Mokelumne River.
Our Primal Kampsites offer the feel of dispersed kamping with the convenience of being right off of Salt Springs Reservoir Road.
Want a place to kamp where you have to hike in and be on your own, testing your wilderness skills? The Wilderness Kamping is for you!
There are three fantastic kampgrounds available here at the Mokelumne River Recreation Area that spans the Eldorado and Stanislaus Forests. Let the adventure of a lifetime, with memories to match, start right at your kampsite located on the famous Mokelumne River. See all that the area, including the historical parts, has to offer. Be prepared, as all of the Kampgrounds have only pit-toilets, and are strictly pack-it-in, pack-it-out. So if this sounds right for you, select your kampground, reserve your kampsite and let you and your family’s adventure begin!
Mokelumne Kampground is first Kampground you find as you make the trek down Ellis Road. It has 16 kampsites available. This is our only Kampground that has limited, small (22′ max) RV sites.
Moore Creek offers a great swimming hole as well as extra space between the kampsites. A long-time favorite of families, some of whom boast being “third-generation” kampers here. This is the only kampground of ours located in the Stanislaus Forest.
While it is the smallest of our Kampgrounds in available kampsites, it may be the largest when it comes to a great kamping experience. Every kampsite is exceptionally large, ending your exciting day with a quiet night’s sleep.
