Event Description

All sites have been reserved as of March 8, 2016. Please look at the comment wall to see who might be willing to share their site. 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:

I booked 14 to co-opt the fifth wheel guy and 11 for the shade. It will be a toss-up.

What were the other shady (or shadier) spots that were close by? I'll reserve tomorrow.

Comment by westywoman (Melissa) on December 7, 2015 at 7:44pm

Avoid 10. Best shade along the highway side. 18, 20, 5, 4, etc.
