Camp History
Leoni Meadows was a dairy and truck gardening ranch homesteaded by the Leoni family in the late 1800s. The Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists purchased the property in 1975 to replace leased facilities at Pinecrest, thus facilitating development of a conference retreat center and summer camp.

Leoni Meadows is located midway between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe at 4,200 feet elevation on 920 acres, surrounded by the El Dorado National Forest. Facilities include 84 motel-like rooms, 160 dormitory beds, 20 heated cabins with private baths, a 45-space RV park with central bath house, 6 meeting rooms to accommodate 30-500, a cafeteria seating 320, an outdoor amphitheater seating 400, and an outdoor church bowl which seats 300.
