Plymouth California

PlymouthRVing in Plymouth California

We’ve found another “close to home” RV favorite – less than an hour from our house, a perfect weekend escape for RVing.  UPDATE – SEE THE LAST PARAGRAPH IN THIS BLOG – THIS HAS CHANGED.  Located in Plymouth is the 49er Village RV park.   Plymouth is in the Sierra Foothills and is the gateway to the wonderful Shenandoah Valley – with LOTS & LOTS of great wineries!

The RV Park

This RV park has a lot to offer – full hook-ups including cable tv, 2 pools (one covered in the winter for year-round swimming), jacuzzi, outdoor play area for the kids, billiard hall, café (yes they have ice cream!!), fishing (ponds for the kids-catch & release).  Oh yeah, and free wifi, and laundry room.  We’ve visited a few times this year in the RV, including a couple of times with grandkids.

Our campfire

We have splurged and stayed in the waterfront sites next to the pond a couple of times – easier with a 40′ rig.  Pretty scenery, larger sites and easy for the kids to go throw their pole into the pond & fish.

The Area

RVing in Plymouth California, there is so much to do in this area – including wine tasting. Modern-day gold panning, historic sites and towns, rafting, great shopping, and delicious cuisine.  Jackson Rancheria is a short drive away, one of the things we enjoy.

Here is my favorite part – they offer a Loyalty Card for purchase $49/yr.  This offers discounted stays, discounts at the café and my FAVORITE part – if available early check-ins or late check-outs … which we take advantage of to give us more time Sunday before heading home.  Also, free night for your birthday (paid for itself right there) and a punch card for a free night stay when you fill it up.

Not meaning to sound like a commercial – we don’t have a vested interest in anything here.  We just wanted to share our find with you

I guess I should be careful about how many I tell however as the park does fill up on busy weekends.


This RV park has changed all the things we loved about it and about being a member of their 49er club.  They cancelled the club with no notice.  So no more earning free nights, late checkouts, and other perks.  No more 49er discounts.  Their prices jumped, and to take the cake, they started charging a $25 fee if you wanted to guarantee the spot you reserve!  When you reserve the waterfront premium spot at a high per-night fee, you shouldn’t have to pay even more to make sure you really get that site!  Sad Sad Sad.  Looks like we will have to find another favorite close get-away spot.  This 4th of July weekend, which was reserved during the shut-down to go with friends and I was not informed of any of this, will be our last trip to this park.  Too bad, but the price is too high now for what you get as far as I’m concerned.
