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. This airport is included in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.
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. 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.
