As its name suggests, Hidden Falls Regional Park isn't the easiest state park to track down in California, but it's worth the effort. Tucked away in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the park is around a half an hour drive from both Auburn and Lincoln. It's under an hour's drive away from Sacramento, too, making it the perfect motorhome camping escape from the stresses of city life.
Camping near Hidden Falls Regional Park is all about exploring the great outdoors, whether that be through hiking, horseback riding, or an afternoon of fishing.

Whether you're coming to explore for the day or a long weekend, you won't regret it when you book an RV in Placer County.

There are currently more than 60 miles of trails to choose from, but these are always growing in number. You'll be glad to know that these trails can be completed by foot, on horseback, or with your furry companion by your side. Make sure to bring all the necessary water and food with you as there is no potable water available within the park itself.
Most visitors make a beeline to the waterfall, Hidden Falls, which happens to be the park's namesake. The easiest way to access the falls is via South Legacy Way, a 3.7-mile trail that's considered to be easy enough for any ability level. At some point, you'll need to turn onto the Hidden Falls Access Trail, which is almost half of mile more rugged terrain. Follow the noise of the water, and soon enough, the falls will reveal themselves. A quick side path takes visitors to the Hidden Falls Observation Deck, which provides the best views.
Anyone spending a few days camping with an RV near Hidden Falls Regional Park can take the time to visit the second waterfall and gorge, Canyon View Falls. This can be combined with a visit to Hidden Falls or tackled entirely by itself. The Blue Oak Loop provides the easiest access and runs for 1.3miles over moderate terrain before leading to several viewpoints along the canyon.
Although slightly limited, fishing is possible when you have an RV rental near Hidden Falls Regional Park. Deadman Creek and Coon Creek run through the park and make for a fun day of fishing. While avid fishers may not be too impressed in the offerings, newbies will love reeling in their first trout or other small panfish. For better quality fishing, consider visiting the nearby Camp Far West Reservoir, where largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish all thrive.
