Camp Connell General Store is a gathering place for locals and vacationers, serving as the heart of Camp Connell. It harkens back to an older time when the general store had some of everything you need from espresso to beer to groceries, gifts, camping supplies and home goods.
As well as being a bar and grill, here you’ll enjoy live music on Fridays indoors during the colder months and on Saturdays during the summer behind the store in The Beer Garden. Enjoy great music with family and friends among the pines over a delicious wood fired pizza or amazing bison burger. In warmer months, sit creek side among the pines and let the music and forest take you on a mountain journey, let the kids and puppies dance and play under the stars, and make great summer memories at the Camp Connell Beer Garden.
Enjoy hand-crafted coffees, breakfast burritos, freshly-made sandwiches, pizza and a beer garden. Opened in 1929 to cater to high country vacationers enjoying the spectacular, natural environment, this charming store has been operating continuously ever since. And those gas pumps? They’re evidence of one of the oldest Chevron stations in California.
Be sure to stop in on your way to popular outdoor recreation spots like Bear Valley Mountain and Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
