Hi-
East of Congress Springs Road about 3 miles from downtown Saratoga are 2 cabins, what may have been an artist's studio, a tennis court, and swimming pool (next to Saratoga Creek). I was wondering if you could provide me with information about this "complex" or if you could direct me to a reference resource that might include information about this site.
Any information you have would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much-
Carrie

Hi,

You may be referring to the former Camp Swig.

Google Maps Location:

I should correct this information. The former Camp Swig is at 24500 Congress Springs Rd. Based on the Co Assessor's maps and records, 24103 Congress Springs Rd is APN 503-44-021. This was split from parcel APN 503-44-019 (closer to Saratoga village) a few years ago. It is doubtful this was part of Camp Swig. A title search would need to be done to know for certain.
