NileGuide Expert Says:
A choice campground for the whole family, with easy to moderate hiking trails in the area.
- Sitting at an elevation of 4,800 feet Capps Crossing Campground is located adjacent to the Silver Fork of the American River. In addition to offering camping facilities, the site provides close access to fishing, swimming and scenic views.
Brown trout are resident in the Silver Fork of the American River. Catchable rainbow trout are stocked every other week by California Dept. of Fish and Game from opening of season through July. Season runs from last Saturday in April through November 15th.
On site facilities: 18 camping units ( 1 double ), vault toilets, picnic tables and drinking water. The American River offers fantastic water sport possibilities, though can be dangerous in early Spring after a wet winter. Take your hiking boots and camera. The Highland Trail and Poison Hole Trails are great daytrips, and Tahoe skiing is right around the corner.
