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:

Great seeing Everyone! Thanks for all the help and support with Sydney we love hanging out with you all.

Thanks to Bruce, Regis and especially Randy for patrolling out to make sure Syd and I weren't stuck down in Quincy Saturday!

Those of you listening to my engine sound not so hot, Mike and I were right, some of my engine compartment gasket got sucked into my dog house fan  I cleared it out and Homer ran fine all the way back to SF and I got to caravan with Laura down the mtn for a little while.

Glad to hear Homer was feeling better!

You all missed a rockin' thunderstorm Sunday afternoon, it poured! I LOVED it! Thanks for keeping me company this weekend and being good sports about the hot weather.

I'm so bummed I missed this weekend's camping.  Roaring fire and a thunder storm too? I did learn a valuable lesson though.  I'm up for camping if anyone is going and I can get a reservation.  Thanks in advance for keeping me in mind.  Steph
