Document Description
UC Davis proposes to construct and operate an alumni family camp/environmental education center and conference center on the 210-acre Crystal Lake property south of Interstate 80 between the Yuba Gap and Eagle Lakes freeway exits in Nevada County. The camp and education center would serve a population of up to 350 campers with 70 staff. The conference center would serve as an event venue for professional social gatherings for up to 50 people for a total population of ~470 people during peak periods. The mountainous geography of the property and nearby areas consist of steep mountains peaks, heavily forested vegetation, areas of open granite outcroppings, and streams, rivers, and lakes serving to drain and impound water from snow and rainfall. The proposed project will necessitate pre-construction vegetation removal and initial management as well as long-term operational vegetation management to reduce fire hazards, clear areas for building sites, prevent invasive species, maintain existing species, and enhance the user experience. Construction of the following types of camp facilities would be included in the proposed camp: dining hall (~17,000 sf); lodge, (~10,000 sf), sleeping pods (80 sleeping cabins and 7 restroom/shower buildings for campers and staff), swimming pool, craft center, caretaker's house and equipment building, and amphitheater, developed recreation facilities, registration building, utility and infrastructure buildings, informal recreation trails, and a lake recreation beach and dock area.
