Other Accommodations: (if some guests prefer not to camp)


You can also do a location search on for "Lotus/Coloma, California" for more local accommodation options. We highly suggest encouraging out-of-town guests who do not want to camp to reserve local Airbnb's or accommodations at another facility in town. There are no motels/hotels in Lotus or Coloma. We are in a rural area and motels are at least a 20 minute drive away on dark, windy roads. Reserve accommodations far in advance since they tend to get booked up quick.
