Roaring Camp Railroads shares a fence line with Henry Cowell State Park that has a campground. It's mile or so from the site (not measured, but i walk the trail with my dogs, a few times a week and that's my guess. Steep uphill on the way to the campground) .

There are also several private RV parks on the other side of the river from our site. Also, "hiking" distance from the site. They do offer tent camping. We have never camped at these. Nor have friends. So no endorsements.
