Camp Lotus has thirty grassy, irrigated tent camping sites with adjacent parking, sized for groups from two to forty people. All camp sites have fire rings (with a fire grate) along with the number of picnic tables needed to accommodate your specific group size. All campers have access to two separate bathroom and shower facilities with flush toilets and hot water.

If your group is interested in access to a meeting hall/event facility please look under the events section for accommodations. Camp Lotus sells firewood and you are also welcome to bring your own firewood. In addition, we have briquet BBQ's available for rent upon request.

Camp Lotus takes great pride in providing campsites that give both individuals and groups a sense of being in the outdoors, while still having the comforts that make your weekend getaway that much more relaxing. Trees grow throughout the campground providing ample shade through the summer months (see Gallery). All campers have access to extensive river front along the banks of the South Fork American River. There are numerous beach access points, little coves, hidden fishing spots, and places to explore.
