Plumas National Forest Begins Closing Campgrounds as Summer Season Ends


The Plumas National forests begin to close campgrounds as fall approaches. If you are still trying to squeeze in one last camping trip, the forest service warns you to check which campgrounds remain open out of the over 150 within the forest. This week six campgrounds have closed as Forest service employees, and camp hosts have started winterizing the sites.

Mill Creek Campground on the Mount Hough Ranger District is still open. However, it is scheduled to be closed for the season later this month to replace toilets at the facility.

This week Little Beaver, Red Feather, and Running Deer campgrounds on the Feather River Ranger District and Gansner Bar, Greenville, and Hallsted campgrounds on the Mount Hough Ranger District are closed for the season. Some remaining open sites may also have reduced services due to the decline in summer visitors. Stage 2 fire restrictions also remain in place, and Campfires are only allowed in designated recreation sites with a campground host and inside provided fire rings.
