Friends of San Jose Family Camp
Reviewed 20 February 2010

Last year was my fifth visit to San Jose Family Camp. As the previous years I went with my 3 kids, ages 11, 14 and 17, my brother and his son, age 12, and my mother. And as the previous years we had a fantastic time. Regardless of all the exciting vacations we have gone to, Israel, Mexico, Hawaii, etc., we always look forward to spending a few days at the family camp every summer.

It is a time to reconnect and do the things that we always feel we should be doing as a family. You know, talking, playing board games, going to the swimming hole, eating ice cream, hiking, floating down the river, fishing,playing bingo, etc.

Sadly, this year, 2010, the camp is closed for remodeling.

This is a great, inexpensive family camp if you love the outdoors and being close to water. They have scheduled activities for all ages. Activities include and are not limited to swimming, fishing (they even cook the fish for you!), hiking, archery, campfires, bingo, casino night, dancing etc.. They have a part of the river sectioned off as swimming pool, creates opportunities for many memories for you and loved ones.

I was particularly pleased with the nutritious options for meals, included vegetarian food. The tent cabins are cozy and have a nice little porch. Some even have electricity. The restrooms are well-located. The facilities are fairly clean and the staff is friendly.
