The Ramshorn Campground is located just northwest of Lake Tahoe near Goodyears Bar, California, and features 16 tent-only sites in a picturesque location. Ramshorn consists of two loops, both of which are surrounded by blackberry bushes, cedar, and fir trees. The upper loop has several oak trees that provide campers with plenty of shade on hot days. The campground's position near the North Yuba River makes it an ideal destination for campers who want to fish, swim, hike, or go non-motorized boating. Furry campers are welcome to join their owners, but they must always be attended and on a leash.
Your spot at the Ramshorn Campground will come with a picnic table and a fire ring, and there are vault toilets nearby. Note that none of these sites or the bathrooms are accessible. Potable water is available on site, as is a self-pay station. The daily rate is $24 for all spots at Ramshorn, and there are no additional park entrance fees. Bears frequent the area, so campers are encouraged to store their food in bear-safe lockers.
During your stay, you're just a short walk from the shores of the North Yuba River. In the spring and early summer, it makes for a great place for whitewater rafting, and throughout the rest of the year, it's used for fishing, swimming, and wading. Several hiking trails surround the campground, and your dog can join you on them, but they must be kept on their leash. Choose from the Halls Ranch Trail, a moderately difficult 12.2-mile trail, or the 16-mile North Yuba Trail for a longer adventure. If you're looking to try something different, campers can pan for gold on the North Yuba River, and campers love to go berry picking around the campground, too.
The Ramshorn Campground tends to be very busy in the summer and on holiday weekends, so make sure to book your spot or you could miss out on this furrific destination!
