Campground Review: 49er Village, Plymouth, CA

Far Horizons 49er Village RV Resort is located in Plymouth, CA, right in the heart of California’s Gold and Wine Country.  We stayed at 49er Village on a busy Labor Day holiday weekend a few years back.  This was the first “RV Resort” we had ever stayed at and this was the first place we stayed that had full hook-ups.  I can’t tell you how amazing it was to run the air conditioning in our trailer for the first time while in that 90 degree heat!

As I mentioned earlier, this was our first venture to the RV Resort world and I remember that my first impression was how close all the trailers were to each other.  We had been used to camping in the “wild” and this RV resort was definitely not in the wild and was, in fact, right off of a little highway.  Each RV site has full hook-ups and a small patch of grass on either side and picnic tables.  The area is paved and is very family friendly.  The kids in our group rode their bikes and go karts all around and were perfectly fine.  There were times throughout the weekend that the RV resort seemed very busy and bustling with activity, but I will attribute that to the fact that we were visiting on a holiday weekend.

49er Village has many amenities that include  2 swimming pools, enclosed spa tub, billiards, volleyball courts, shuffleboard courts, laundry facilities, cafe, gift shop and wi-fi.  The resort also has a large pond on site and the kids absolutely loved catching giant bullfrogs!  I can attest that the swimming pools are a popular attraction and was filled to the brim with kids.  The resort employees even have special events planned on these holiday weekends such as the poolside boat race that they had for the kids one afternoon.  Upon arrival to the resort, the employees provide you with their guest guide, which is a nicely put together guide with resort information and things to do in the area.

Speaking of things to do in the area, there are wineries, golf courses, historical points of interest and our favorite, Apple Hill.  We planned our weekend so that the men of the group played golf at two different courses while the ladies and the kids spent the day in Apple Hill.  If you haven’t been, definitely check it out!  They have lots of cute shops, petting zoos, wineries, produce and anything you ever wanted to eat that was apple flavored!  The other great outing this is very close to 49er Village is the Black Chasm Cavern, National Landmark.  I highly recommend this and it’s definitely worth a visit!


Overall, the best part about 49er Village is the location and I would stay there again, however I was not thrilled about being so close to your neighbor in the tight RV spots and the resort seemed a little worn.  For additional reviews on this resort, check out RV Park
