WE ARE OPEN...SEE YOU SOON!
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy looking around our campground and come visit us soon.
Safety is very important to the Konkow Partners, as well as, every family on the property. There are children all around, running and playing, so of course there are guidelines to follow. If you become aware of any safety or other issue, please notify Caretaker immediately, so that it can be corrected.
Remember, that in this area, we had The Camp Fire, Bear Fire and Dixie Fire in recent years. The campground has been rebuilding since the Camp Fire. The campground is carefully maintained and kept fire safe, while doing our best to keep it in it's natural form. The owners have an emergency plan in place should any warnings ever be issued. We are proactive and happy to refund your stay if that was to occur. We want you to know that you are safe at Lake Concow Campground.
Because it is summer and fire season, there are no individual fires allowed in your campsite. Only gas barbeques are allowed in the camp sites. If there is no wind, and it's not a red flag day, then if you have a raised device that does not sit on the ground, we try to allow small fires, but only allowed in the main fire pit area, not campsites. We all want to roast marshmellows. Any fire beyond gas bbq, must be approved in advance by caretaker.
We have a 5 MPH speed limit for you to use. We do not have designated "spots" with row after row of rv's. We're not that kind of campground. We have lots of space for you to find the "spot" that speaks to you to spread out in. We ask that you use caution as you drive in and as you park. There are areas with logs as barricades, such as the shoreline and volleyball areas. Please do not camp beyond those barriers. Those are designated play areas.
Lake Concow Campground is only 5 miles off of Highway 70, but it is a curvy 5 miles. Please drive slowly, so that you are able to keep your vehicle on the correct side of the road for safety sake. We generate more traffic in the summer months, so do our best to respect the Concow Community by mentioning this to new campers to the area. We would appreciate your help. Thank you.
As you drive into the upper property, off of Concow Road, please stop at the office to check in. It's ok to honk if you don't see someone right away. Each vehicle entering the property, even if only for day use, is required to sign that they are aware of the rules and must list their car license plate. A copy will be provided to you. Internet is minimal in lower campground, but you can get signal in the upper areas.
A local charity operates several programs from this property, including a Community Tool Lending Library. They have been helping Concow Families rebuild since the 2018 Camp Fire. They have a lot of equipment on site, so please be aware, in the upper private owners and equipment areas, there are security cameras in use. They upload to the cloud immediately, like magic, but we keep them out of the lower campground areas for privacy.
There are trash barrels around the campground for your use or a large recepticle and/or trailer up top as you are leaving the campground. There is wildlife in the area, although we have never had a problem, we have had more wildlife coming through than usual since the fires. The trash cans attract them so we remain proactive. Please do not accumulate trash in your campsite. Caretaker empties trash barrels and cleans bathrooms twice daily. Please report any issues or concerns immediately.
Lake Concow Campground was originally the land of the Konkau Maidu. The Konkow Partners are working with local indiginous groups and giving them an area of their own for special ceremonies and education programs for their youth. Some of these areas are still undergoing repair and restoration after the campfire, so some areas are closed.
