Here is a brief history of close Emerald Bay, Camp Richardson, and Private Jameson Beach Estates.

  • Continue straight along Highway 89 also known here as Emerald Bay Road while I tell you about our next stop, Camp Richardson and Private Jameson Beach Estates. It is about 3 miles.

The earliest records of ownership of the land around Camp Richardson are from 1875 when M. C. Gardner purchased several thousand acres of timber holdings from the U.S. Government and built a sawmill and railroad line there. He paid 25 cents an acre for the land.

“Lucky” Baldwin bought out Gardner in the late 1800s and built a lakefront summer home for his family and the Tallac Hotel for visitors.

Over the years Lucky sold off units of his land to families who built homes on the adjoining properties.

One of those units was purchased in 1924 by Captain Alonzo Richardson. Richardson built cabins and a lakefront pavilion; he added a hotel in 1926, and later a dining room, and gas station. In 1927 he built the long wharf which is now used as the Richardson Resort pier just a walk from the private Jameson Beach Estate. .

In the early 1950s after Richardson died, the resort was passed to his widow Cora and his daughter and son-in-law Florence and Ray Knisley. By 1967 the operation of the Resort was becoming more difficult and less profitable, and there was great pressure on the family to sell the land for commercial development.

Ray approached the United States Forest Service with the option of taking over the land. There were lots of behind the scenes back and forth negotiations before an agreement was reached. Today the Richardson Marina remains privately owned, and the Camp Richardson Resort is operated under a Special Use Permit from the United States Forest Service.

For decades now multiple generations of families have stayed in the cabins and played on the beach at Camp Richardson, creating lasting memories.Tax # 075755 Permit Number 074805
