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.

You can tour the Seven Wonders of the Railroad World in Plumas County:

Tried to make a reservation, but there's no map of sites. Will have to wait for the site to fix it.

If you want electric, book 16 or 12 or 4. They are all really nice. If you don't want electric stick with 3. 3 is near where the loop begins, on they highway side. 4 is positioned similarly. 12 and 16 are at the other end of the loop. I doubt they have renumbered the sites. They just seem to be overhauling the website.
