  • I love the fact this place is close to Nevada City but seems so far away from it all. The lake is awesome and the fact you can just have the boats to go onto it at your pleasure it (email hidden)d it helps the water is warm!

    The commercial kitchen is fantastic for people to cook prior to just hanging out on the deck......we had clear skies at night with the stars in full view......it would make you want to turn into astronomy!

    All in all I would highly recommend this place and we definitely plan on going back!

John and I bought Camp Watanda in December 2002 after working at the camp next door for 20 years. This property came up for sale. We were fortunate enough to be able to buy it, refurbish and and make it available for familiy rentals.
