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:


The Twain Store is walking distance from the campground and has ice, ice cream, deli items, breakfast, sandwiches, beer , baked goods and more. Plan to enjoy a meal at the Twain Store. The camp host will have firewood for sale.

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

And so the countdown begins. The first year I organized TrainSpotting (2009), I sold my then 81 Westy a week prior. I had no idea what I was going to show up in for my own campout. Shari speculated that I would ride in a burro named Whiskey. That burro turned out to be Stephan's Synfalia and that was a blast! There are always good times at TrainSpotting.

I have booked Site 16. A change-up for me. And once again, I may need to borrow a burro for this campout. Time will tell. I hope to see you there.
