Cameron Park is situated in an interior Chaparral zone or brush zone just east of the Central Valley California. The elevation of Cameron Park varies between approximately 1,200 and 1,450 feet above sea level, and is not considered in the snow zone of the Sierra Nevada mountains to the east, which is typically between 3,000 and 5,000 feet of elevation and above.
Summers are generally hot and dry, with average daytime temperatures in the 90 to 100 °F range, but sometimes reaching 110 °F, or more. It can be very dry, with little effect of mountain thunderstorms or monsoonal flows that affect the south and interiors. Nights, however, tend to cool off more so than in the Sacramento Valley below, and temperatures in general range a few degrees below the eastern portion of the Central Valley because of the elevation difference. Autumns tend to be an “extended dry, hot summer” throughout California and Cameron Park is no exception. Winters are generally cool and rainy, with highs averaging 40 to 60 °F and nights occasionally dropping below freezing. Cameron Park typically receives exceptional snow events, about once every few years.
