Corporate Groups

Bring your group to Mother Lode River for a fun, adventurous and exciting day at our beautiful 20-acre property on the American River for a team-building experience to remember.

I want to thank you for the awesome trip I had at Mother Lode. I had a terrific time and you guys were really fun.

The experience was great, the food was very yummy and camping out in the tents was a blast. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!

School Groups

Our programs for school groups are great field trip or class retreat events that promote deeper understanding and respect of students community, relationship building and teamwork.

The students had a great time in the outdoors while reviewing information they have studied and learning new things.

Gold Rush History

Camp Life

We’ll do all the cooking so you can relax with a good book, snooze in the shade, play a game of volleyball, or just sit and watch the sun set.

Our guides will amaze you with their culinary delights, Dutch-oven-desserts and even a river sauna upon your request.

Enjoy a private campfire and gaze at the stars as the river lulls you to sleep.
