We stayed here for 6 days. The park managers were very friendly and work with campers to make their stay the best experience possible. We arrived in the area a day earlier than expected and were able stay in a vacant site for the night. We liked the park, people and town so much we were able to stay in our space for an extra night.
The restrooms and showers are spotless, sites are cleaned as soon as the occupant leaves and . The grounds are well maintained and the whole park reflects pride of ownership and the attitude of the staff. Walking distance to town on a walking trail. Sites vary in size to accommodate small units to large class A RVs. We had no trouble with our 38 ft. 5th wheel. Will return. - JohnG3

Stayed in early July. This is an amazing RV park. It is very close to town so walking to restaurants and shopping was easy. The park is very pet friendly (no charge). There are hiking and biking trails next to the park . The staff was very friendly and informative about the area and helpful in locating our trailer on the lot. There are lots of trees and the sites are very big. The bathrooms are amazing and had fresh flowers. Golf is close by and the park is very quiet. We will stay here again and again. - Mark R

This RV Park is very clean and has a lot of trees and shade and all sites are nicely positioned for privacy. The park is pet friendly (no charge for pets) and they have walking trails. The park is close to town and golf and hiking. The restrooms are very clean. We will stay there again. - Mark R

We chose this park due to the "9" ratings. After we arrived, I noted that the ratings are 5 years old. I will give the pros and cons here. PLEASE NOTE: the park has just been sold and the new owners have many plans to upgrade this park. New owner gentleman was so super helpful and friendly, a can do guy. They are going to add more sites, remodel the laundry room, partition off the full time area, add bocce ball and other rec opportunities. Also, they will build some cabins, which will be a wonderful addition.
PROS: The setting is gorgeous. We camped under the pines with 30 amp hook up, water and sewer. You could be fooled into thinking you are in a national park. You are surrounded by the forest. There is a nice walk through the forest behind the camp. It was quiet, set up off the main highway. Fire pits and picnic tables. We used site 26 which was very spacious with lots of privacy. The owner guided us to our site and helped us settle in.
You are so close to the Lakes Basin, where we did some great hiking. Also good food in Graeagle and Blairsden. The wi fi worked mostly well and there was a good cable channel lineup which also worked well.
CONS: The laundry room was filthy and only one washer worked, no dryers worked. We used a clothesline at our campsite to dry clothes. The rec room was locked so we did not see what was in there. The full timers: excuse me for saying this, but the area looks trashy. Someone living in a school bus there, for example. The new owners plan to section off this area with a fence and give them their own access road. We will check this park out again in a year or so. I do believe that the new ownership is earnest in their intent to fix it up and make it a lovely stay. So, check it out!
By the way, there is a lovely dry camping campground here as well. - Barbara Lee Tondro

Our site was nice, level gravel. Water pressure good, electrical voltage good and steady. Sewer hookup is located well for gravitational flow but you will need a hose that is longer than 10 feet. Owners were friendly and very proud of the cable and satellite TV hook ups but we could not get ours to work. We watched CBS and ABC from our bat wing antenna. Verizon cell and Wi-Fi signal (3G only) was good. A nice, quiet location in tall pines with plenty of shade. Not a destination resort, but a nice clean, well-run spot to park and venture out in the area to see the sights. We will definitely stay here again. - Nevadatripin

This little, no frills gem is one of our favorite places to spend a few days. The park itself is older, owned by the same couple for many years. Some of the pluses are direct access to national forest land for hiking and dog walking, lots of trees, and very clean restrooms. It is a mostly quiet location, with the exception of some noise from Highway 70. Nearby the small town of Blairsden has delicious breakfasts and lunches available from the café, bakery, or deli; drive a bit more to play golf or hike in the Lakes District hiking area with its numerous trails and lakes. The downsides are 3 channel cable TV, the lack of 50 amp hookups, no WiFi, and no Sprint cell phone reception. - From Reno

We have been traveling via RV for 20 years. This is the most congested and difficult to access park that we have ever experienced. The try to pack In as many rigs as possible. We were here over a three day weekend and I dreamed of having a dry camp space at any Walmart. What a joke. The 'guide" who helped us negotiate into our way too small spot caused us close to $1K damage on our rig. He was either dyslexic or blind. This place tries to maximize how you can get 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag. Sorry to say, it did not work for us. This place was designed for tiny rigs with no slides. The supposed WiFi was never working. The power was below acceptable levels for any campground. They collect top dollar for substandard sites. We will NEVER consider going to this place again! - Cathy.Cook

Nice enough park in the trees, well maintained. Roads are tight, especially on holidays, with loads of vehicles, bikes, etc., impeding your access. You are escorted to your site mainly due to tight access and liability, not necessarily out of courtesy. Trains were fine, highway noise is much more than I expected. Unless you are camped right outside the clubhouse, the Wi-Fi is useless. The catv has about five channels, but is better than nothing. Would consider staying here again, but never on a three day weekend. Don't have little kids, but there isn't much for them to due other than run around campsites. Not the park's fault there. - NVDesertGirl

This is a hidden gem, especially for California. It is one of the most beautiful parks in the CA state park system. Jameson Creek runs right through the middle of the campground and the views of the surrounding mountains are incredible. There are no hookups, but there are flush restrooms and nice new shower facilities which are kept clean. The park also has a great museum and you can tour the old mine/stamp mill site. Very nice rangers on site. Take the time to explore the nearby towns of Graeagle, Portola, and Blairsen. They are California unspoiled. Also, the Lakes Basin area is truly a natural wonder. Frazier Falls is worth the 1.5 mile hike. If you want to dine out, don't miss Gumbas in Blairsden. They have great pizza, friendly staff, and VERY family friendly! The ONLY drawbacks to Plumas Eureka are the lack of hookups and a lot of the spaces are difficult to maneuver in to. I wouldn't recommend it for rigs over 25 feet. If you don't camp there, at least take the time to visit the park! - campingwithourboys

The best asset of this park is the staff! Wonderful people who really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need to have a great time. We were lucky to arrive on a night that they were having a benefit for the Horses Unlimited program for autistic children, so we enjoyed a great meal and two piece band for a great cause! We also were lucky enough to win a couple raffle prizes as well!
The second best asset of this park is the trees! Shade everywhere. The sites are mostly dirt with gravel, but ours was very level. After the weekend the place emptied out to about 1/4 capacity. They have a giant communal fire pit that looked amazing, but no one else was using it so we saved our s'mores for when we got home. The dog park is small (32'x16'), and all dirt, but adequate. Leash rule is very strictly enforced (which is a great thing). Park was always very quiet and relaxing, and if you don't feel like cooking they have a very quaint cafe/store on site that serves breakfast and lunch except on Tuesdays. Satellite TV was a total of 5 channels, 8 if you can do digital.
So why the 7 rating? Two things that were tough for us. While the park is surrounded by things to do and neat towns to explore, everything but hiking is a several miles away, so if you don't have a tow vehicle or a toad you need to break camp if you want to do anything outside the park. The Feather River is only 1/2 mile away by satellite map, but because of the private property in between you must drive several miles to enjoy it.
But by far the biggest deal breaker for us was the fact that cell service is nonexistent (Verizon, at least), and the Internet was as bad as it gets to still be able to call it "available." For my DW that has her own business, and myself that sadly depends on Internet while away from work, we just wouldn't be able to stay here again.
If you want great hospitality and a quiet shady non-connected experience, this is the place for you! - NvLivin

A great camping experience, lots of pine trees and shade. The Park is immaculate, the owners keep the grounds in excellent condition. Gravel and dirt sites, ours was level, full hook up, picnic table, with Wi-Fi and cable TV. Pets are OK, but must be on a leash at all times; dog run. Bathrooms and showers were clean, individual shower stalls with door and dressing area. Owners are very friendly and informative. Park fire pit (campfire) located in safe area. Country store, post office, and Café (breakfast and lunch) on premises. Quiet at night. - zigzag

This is the second time we've stayed here. It's only 1.5 hours from our home and is a great, quick weekend get-away. It's nestled in the pines and is quiet and dark at night (important to us). The managers are always friendly and helpful. - CarrieD

We are happy to report that there has been a change in ownership of this park and all previous issues have been addressed and corrected that I wrote about in my previous comments in July 2006. The park is now owned by those that know what it takes to create a wonderful experience for their guests. We spent several nights last month and the park was very clean and the grounds look refreshed!
They have done an outstanding job clearing dead and over grown trees, upgrading the laundry and game rooms and the general appearance of the grounds are now appealing. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The owners are very friendly and informative.
The eviction of some of the year round riff raff has increased a sense of safety for you and your family. The pool is a delight as it's the only RV park in the area with one!
Feather River RV Park has become the best park in the area. I highly recommend this park for weekend and seasonal campers. - Coastalview

We love Feather River now that it is under new ownership, it's like an entirely different place. It's clean, fun, safe, and the people are so friendly. This doesn't count the pool. For our family the pool is a huge plus. I would 100% recommend this camp ground to anyone. - Sam Nolan

We have been seasonal campers at this park for over 12 years and have always enjoyed ourselves. We agree that there were issues with all of the previous owners but the park is now owned by a wonderful family that have invested more time and money in the last 6-8 months than all the other owners combined. We spent our first night of the season a couple of weekends ago and the park was as clean as I have ever seen it. The have done an awesome job taking out dead and dying trees, updating the laundry and game rooms, lowered the price for bigger bundles of wood and evicted some of the year round riff raff. The pool is ready to go and we can't wait to start our camping season. Feather River is easily the best value, most natural looking park in the area. I highly recommend this park for both weekend and seasonal campers. Stop by site #25 when you're there. - Dave and Cindy

Very nice park. There is a one way short bridge to go over to get into the park. The sites are very clean. Would definitely come back and stay here. - Gusie

Initially stopped here for an overnight before going into the forest to camp, but we ended up staying here for a five nights. Do please keep in mind that we visited in September, and the place was mostly empty at the end of the season. This would have a completely different, busy, noisy, and active character in-season -- one that we wouldn't have cared for. As it was, it IS beautiful, filled with huge, old-growth pine trees next to the river. The campground grounds are largely white gravel, which is pretty and comfortable to walk on barefoot. All of the sites are full hookup, and well designed and comfortable in size, though not demarcated one from the other. Our visit found the park lightly populated and wonderfully quiet. It was relaxing and even had OK cell service. We had some problems with wifi, but didn't bother to take it up with the very pleasant managers. We would go back here, but only early or late season. - jclifton

Love this park! Have been here previously a couple of times but it's been quite a few years since our last visit. It's in a beautiful setting amongst pine and aspen trees next to the river. The owners have a lot of pride of ownership as the crew goes into each campsite and cleans the leaves, etc. as soon as someone leaves. They have expanded their Wifi throughout the park and it is free. They escort you to your campsite and when we had a problem unhitching our toad, our guide tried to assist us! We stayed in the F section due to the 50amp service and some of the sites are fairly close to each other. If you only need 30amp you have many sites with more space in between. The park is very quiet other than an occasional train that comes through the area. It didn't bother us. - Hitch2go

I would have rated it a 3 but the people are awesome so I had to bump the rating to 4. The office manager and grounds keeper are awesome people and will do almost anything to help you. The park is a very basic park with full hookups. The sites are compact dirt and most are under large pine trees with lots of shade. There are also pull-thru sites and sites in the open. Our lot was fairly level, only needed two leveling blocks. The price we paid is based on the weekly rate, which is quite reasonable. There were a lot of regulars who show up the same time every year. We made friends with all of them. Would definitely stay there again. - newbies2016

We had an enjoyable stay at this lovely small park. It was quiet and peaceful and wildlife wandered through several times a day. The staff was friendly and helpful. We spent and extra night simply because it was so charming. We will return soon. - friend

Campground is close to Lake Davis. It was small, and OK for $17 a night with basic hook-ups. Manager was very nice and helpful. We will be back in near future. - blossom

We camped here in order to attend an evening concert at the Kentucky Mine, which is 7 miles away. Worked perfectly for that purpose. This stretch of 49 is a good road to travel at night. However, the campground has seen much better days. Sites are not level and are very small, but our RV is smallish and we got our 1 slide out. There is fresh drinking water, but it is not possible to fill RV tanks with it. Too bad we were counting on that. Very good camp hosts. There is a hiking trail within the park, along the creek. Not well-maintained (wear your boots!) but pretty. Note that fee of $19 does not include $9 reservation fee through recreation.gov (ouch!) or additional tax. Fee is awfully high for pretty primitive camping. - JCLC

Very pleasant stay. Park has good shade. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Did not use laundry but looked in and room was tidy, clean, and large. Above average internet response times. Owners were very accommodating making sure we got a site that suited our needs. Very quite during our stay mid-week but may be different on weekends as park sits adjacent to fairgrounds and a city park. Also, we noticed that perimeter sites picked up more noise from surrounding properties the the interior sites. Would return here if in area. - TravelinTail

This is a great park The owners are very helpful and nice. It has the feel of a family park the owners make you feel very welcome and they appreciate the camper. It is an older park but well maintained and is no problem for big rigs.The sites vary in length but all have good distance between sites. The roads are paved as are some of the sites. The grounds are kept cut trimmed and clean. The sites are cleaned, tables and utilities are wiped down after every departure. All the utilities worked well. It is a popular park and I can see why. It is not a fancy resort but it has all the amenities and a beautiful park in the woods. It will become one of our favorite parks. We will return again. - JDR
