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!

Those looking for hot springs can find them a couple miles up the road. Formerly known as "Woody's", the Feather River Hot Springs are now associated with an RV park and cabins. I think you need to call to make a reservation.

The Twain Store is walking distance from the campground and has ice, ice cream, deli items, breakfast and lunch, beer and much more.

The camp host will have firewood for sale.

The site map on Recreation.gov is useless, please refer to the map in the comment above. I have booked Site 16.

I'm in #15. I hope we get a bunch of the old crowd.

That URL for the hot springs doesn't work. Is that the one with the high sulfur content?

Comment by Laura May on March 18, 2021 at 7:07pm

Site 7 booked.

Thanks for the head's up John. I fixed the link, there is yet another owner for the hot springs. And yes, it is rustic and smelly, you can smell the sulfur from the road above as you drive by.

I think I'll give it a miss, then. I'm really sensitive to sulfur smells ... instant headache.
