Location (also the meeting place South Fork American River trips): Rivers Bend Resort, 6400 State Hwy. 49, Lotus, CA 95651. South Fork American Map & Directions
The large on-river site holds up to 75 guests and an overflow site is available for larger groups.
Unfortunately RV hook-ups are not available, but RV’s are welcome to park in the parking area and use the resort shower and restroom facilities. Advance reservations and fees for camping are still required.
For those who are more into Glamping than Camping, looking for more luxury and comfort. These 2 air conditioned rooms at Rivers Bend are right next to our meeting/camping location. Shower & restroom facilities are adjacent in a separate building. These are both listed on AirBnB and are not maintained by Tributary.
These are not usually available in the winter and sometimes not available to book until the spring. If the owners are away, listings are suspended. Give us a call if you might be interested in booking and we will put you in touch.
Reservations are required, and can be book thru our reservations office. You can arrive any time after 5:00 pm, but preferably during daylight hours. There is no check in point, just proceed down the trail to our camp which is past the rest rooms, and the last site on the trail. It is clearly marked “Tributary Camp”. A cart to assist in transporting your overnight gear should be available at the top of the steps into our camp. You can set up in any available location, but please be considerate in your use of the space. Also please be aware that in all camps on the South Fork American, there is a quiet time between 10:00 pm and 7:00 am. You are welcome to talk at normal levels after this time, however, noise must be minimal after 10:00 pm.
