49er RV Ranch

Columbia, California

49er RV Ranch is a campground located in Columbia. Known as the oldest campground in the West, this Ranch has been providing travelers "Old Ranch Hospitality" since 1852! Known back then as the Columbia Springs Ranch, newly arrived wagon trains would circle up to prospect the rich gold fields of Columbia. Now travelers can prospect the rich living heritage of California's Gold Rush as kept alive in Columbia State Historic Park. Come visit us - enjoy that same old-fashioned friendliness!

Today, this ranch offers modern RVers a comfortable haven complete with full service RV sites providing: Cable TV, Water, Electric, & Sewage hookups. A Modem connection is provided in the camp store.
