Event Description

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

Hallsted Campground

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.

Speaking of potluck, I will bring mac & cheese.

I will bring a couple of pounds of tri-tip, along with some Bernaise sauce (hey, we may be rough, but we're not primitive).

We'll either have pulled pork and fixings or cold fried chicken- both pretty good........... looking forward to it!!

I want to bring a new screened canopy to TS but I dont want to take it with me on the rest of my road trip following the campout. Is anyone willing to take it back to Sacramento and drop it off at my house?
Comment by John LaTorre on June 7, 2017 at 10:54am

I can do that, Westywoman.
