Each year from May to October, campers head to Stumpy Meadows Campground in Georgetown, California for a peaceful and family-friendly getaway destination. The campground is located within the Eldorado National Forest, and campsites get plenty of shade from the surrounding pine, fire, and oak trees. Summer is the best time of year to visit Stumpy Meadows, and you'll find the climate tends to be warm and dry then. Sparky can accompany you on your camping trip, but you'll be subject to a $2 pet fee, and pets must always be leashed.
A single site at Stumpy Meadows goes for $24 a night, and that price includes parking for one vehicle. Double sites can accommodate up to 12 people, and the $48 fee includes parking for two cars. There are no hookups for RVs at Stumpy Meadows, but sites come with picnic tables, campfire rings, and grills. There's also drinking water available from water spigots throughout the campground, some accessible camping sites, and a self-pay station. A dumping station is available on-site, and guests are charged $6 for its use.
Campsites are well-spaced so you'll have all the privacy you need. The Stumpy Meadows Reservoir is just a short walk from the campground. The reservoir is ideal for all sorts of outdoor activities that your whole family can enjoy. Go for a swim, fish for rainbow and German brown trout, go kayaking or canoeing, or use a slow-paced motorboat at no more than five miles per hour. Campers can also head into Georgetown, a historic 19th-century gold mining region, to shop, dine, and explore. Bring your dog along for a drive on the El Dorado County Scenic Highway or venture over to the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park in nearby Coloma.
Although the campground is generally open from April to October (depending on snowfall), the area is still open for day use during the off-season. Checkout is at 1 PM, and reservations are always encouraged so you don't lose your spot at this furrific campground!
