Cameron Airpark (FAA LID: O61) is a public use airport located in Cameron Park, El Dorado County, California, United States. It is owned by the Cameron Park Airport District.[1] This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

The area to the west of the runway is a residential airpark where home owners can taxi their planes up to their homes. The east side of the runway is public and includes rented tie-down spaces, hangar spaces, and a limited number of transient spaces. The runway and general airport area is owned and operated by a council of the home owners on the field. The elevated area to the east of the runway is owned by private individuals.[3] Some of the area is offered for tie-down rental spots. Since the airport is privately owned, with different parcels owned by different individuals, the airport has continued to shrink as parcels are sold off for non-aviation businesses. The airport has never received federal obligation grant funds and is, therefore, not obligated to operate.
