Plumas National Forest announces more campground openings just in time for the upcoming memorial day weekend. Starting today you can enjoy the numerous sites in the Feather River Canyon, Lake Davis Recreation Area, Frenchman Lake, Antelope Lake Recreation Area, Bucks Lake Recreation Area, and isolated sites on the Beckwourth and Mount Hough Ranger District operated by Outdoors in Plumas under a permit with the Plumas National Forest as they open for the season. A delay open is set for the Recreation sites in the Lakes Basin Area. Outdoors in Plumas is expecting you can begin recreating at the sites by May 27th.
Additionally Forest recreation specialists are opening Wyandotte Campground at Little Grass Valley Recreation Area, as well as sites in Sly Creek and Strawberry Campgrounds in the Sly Creek Recreation Area on May 22.
Yet due to wildfire damage Feather Falls, Little North Fork, and Rogers Cow Campgrounds in the Feather River Canyon will remain closed for the 2022 season.
You will need to keep in mind this year following the destructive Beckwourth complex and Dixie Fires that many locations in the forest have been affected and may affect your time outdoors. Also
Spring weather conditions remain variable and can change rapidly, from warm and dry to cold and wet with little notice. The forest service reminds you to be prepared for the changing conditions.
The region has seen some recent storms, yet fuel conditions remain extremely dry in the forest. You are asked to use caution with anything that could spark a wildfire and to ensure campfires are dead out and cold to the touch before leaving.
