For more than 100 years, the little town of Camp Nelson has been a sought-after destination in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It is truly a place to encounter reality by stepping into a quiet and beautiful atmosphere where you and your family can relax and reacquaint. In this small community is found a historic lodge for your enjoyment, Camp Nelson Lodge.
The Camp David West guest rooms are peaceful with great overnight accommodations such as heavenly beds, simulated wood-burning stoves and fireplaces, small refrigerators, and a picture window for viewing the meadow-like lawn lined with beautiful cedar trees. The majestic Slate Mountain towers above it all. In the early mornings and evenings it is not uncommon to see deer come from the nearby thicket to graze on the lawn. When you first arrive at Camp Nelson Lodge, the mountain air is a peaceful welcome and an immediate comfort. If you're looking for entertainment, it will have to be of "old-fashioned" sort. There's no cluttered noise, no crowds, and no traffic to compete with your vacation.
Unlike many large commercial resorts, there is no extra charge for enjoying the various amenities available at the Lodge. Complimentary activities like shuffle board, horse shoes, badminton, croquet, ping pong and board games are all available at your leisure. Also available in the area are plenty of hiking and mountain bike trails, several well-stocked streams for fishing, and beautiful giant redwood trees for admiring. For some, reading, writing, good conversation and peaceful rest at the Lodge will be all that's needed. All that Camp Nelson Lodge and the surrounding community has to offer is perfect for individuals, families and groups.
After your stay, you will return home refreshed and inspired. We invite you to come and enjoy a wonderful mountain get-away at the historic Camp Nelson Lodge.
Love in Christ,
