Camp Nelson Lodge – Springville, CA
- Property Overview
The Camp Nelson Lodge is an original classic built around the same era as the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite, CA. Historically, the property has been used as the social hub for this community, hosting events, dances, and guests to the full-service mountain resort for many years. For the last decade, the current owners have used it as their own personal family vacation retreat.
The property offers endless recreational activities. Just up the road is the Giant Sequoia National Monument, the Golden Trout Wilderness area, the headwaters of the Kern River, as well as quiet and accessible Giant Sequoia Redwood groves. Biking, backpacking, day hiking, fishing, bird watching, and off-road travel are excellent summer activities. Winter will bring snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and sledding opportunities.
Property is located at 1699 Nelson Drive – Springville, CA. The Camp Nelson Lodge sits in the quiet mountain community of Camp Nelson in southern Tulare County. Located just under 5,000 ft. elevation.
