Event Description

For information on the Hallsted campground, the recreation.gov link is below:


The Historic Feather River Railroad route runs on the opposite side of the river from the campground. Trains climb and descend the grade at all hours-you will be falling asleep to the rumble of the diesel engines and the squeal of steel wheels on the tracks. If you have never driven through the Feather River Canyon, it is a real treat!

100 FREE things to do in Plumas County:


Those looking for hot springs can find them a couple miles up the road. Formerly known as "Woody's", they are now associated with an RV and cabin establishment. I think you need to call ahead and there is a $5 fee. Details here:


The Twain Store is walking distance from the campground and has ice, ice cream, deli items, beer and more. The camp host will have firewood for sale. It is customary for us to have a group potluck dinner on Saturday -TBD.

I'm so bummed to miss this event. I have two nieces graduating this year so I will be spending time with my other family.  Have fun!

I'm in site #1.

Never stayed in that site.

Maybe I'll be the Camp Greeter.

Looking forward to a great event as always.

Ralph, maybe I could double up if my calendar rewards such a thing.

You distract them with Gate Keeper Greetings and I'll dig through their ashtray for loose change.
