This campground is located right next to Running Deer campground. It has 2 group camping spots. Very clean restrooms. No hookups, dry camping only. Very beautiful lake and area located in the Plumas National Forest. Great lake for fishing and recreation but no speed boats. - deedeea

Memorial Day weekend expect to see snow in the campgrounds. My experience the snow has been all melted by end of June to July. La Porte gift shop has friendly owners. Neat little town feel. Whole area very rustic. Great fishing for rainbow trout and German Brown. Great lake for canoeing, party boat, water skiing but no speed boats. Very relaxed environment. Summer temp avg. 85. - deedeea

An escape! Bucks lake is the perfect getaway from it all. Perfect weekend to be "at the lake"- no distractions. Good fishing and not too crowded. - flyfishfly

Lakeshore Resort clearly caters to year-round or season-long residents. Most sites are occupied by long-term visitors, and facilities for the casual camper are sorely lacking. Bathrooms with flush toilets and shower, yet they looked as if nobody had taken a cleaning rag or mop to them in weeks. Trash dumpsters were overflowing. Electrical hookups were strung through the trees with what looked like extension cords. It was too much money for what was offered. We will not visit here again. - Labs

A good camping experience, lots of trees and shade. The Park is immaculate, the owners keep the grounds in excellent condition. Asphalt roads and sites, ours was level, full hook up, picnic table, with WiFi and cable TV. WiFi was a bit slow but worked for email. RV park is next to the fairgrounds with a playground for kids. Campfires are not permitted. - zigzag

A very well maintain campground. Some sites are quite spacious but not all. All sites are clean up, concrete patio pad swept, picnic table and seats wiped down, etc. as soon as the rig checks out. The roads inside the campground are very bumpy and way past the maintenance years. Most of the sites are well shaded with trees. T-Mobile reception was good. However, the wifi signal was very weak and very difficult to get on. We will camp here again. - gartail

Nice, small, quiet and comfortable park. Sites are ample and can accommodate large Class A Motorhomes. The owners are very active running the park, very friendly and take good care of the campers and the park. Roads and sites are paved and there are plenty of trees around but not too many. You can still get satellite. Phone reception is excellent. The wi-fi is spotty at times and could use an upgrade. Park is dog friendly and has a dog wash. No dog run, but the county fairgrounds are next to the park with plenty of space to let your dog have some fun. There are a few (very few) full time residents, who are friendly and neat with their site. Bathrooms are small with coin operated showers, but it is a small park. They just constructed a "gathering area" with a communal grill and gas fireplace. Nice place to meet your neighbors.
The location is in the middle of the Plumas National Forest with plenty of lakes, rivers, logging roads and outdoor adventures. We were here about a month on a pull thru site in a 45' Class A. We very much enjoyed our stay. Everyone made us feel like part of the family. The only reason to not give them a 9 rating is the lack of a pool or hot tub.
In summary, we highly recommend the park and the location, especially if you like outdoor activities. We will definitely be back!!! - Monty58

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 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 very nice campground. We were escorted to our site and given a run down of what's what. Very clean, quiet and beautiful grounds. The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because the train does run close by and has a tenancy to "toot" it's horn at all hours of the night. Overall we'd definitely go back to this campground. - longlivethebullies

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

Beautiful and convenient setting. High Sierra at it's best. North fork of the Yuba River on property and two minute walk. Far enough from big cities. Quiet mountain village. - Airstream1950
Aug 2011 - $38.00
Nice park, not year around. Sites are very close, and a very tight fit. Camp host was very nice and helpful. The one thing is there is no cell reception. So you have to use pay phone at top of a little hill. The beautiful river is then at the bottom of the hill the other direction. And will really get you in shape, but in the hot weather is was so worth it. - RVKat

Our price was based on a one-week stay. This little park was a perfect find, especially out here where there are mostly National Forest campgrounds with no facilities. You can hear the river from practically any site, and I found most of the sites to be of average to slightly larger than average size, for a private park. The LARGE pet walking area is watered regularly and well maintained - unlike many parks pet areas, there were no stickers or weeds, just soft green grass. The rest of the park is nicely landscaped with beautiful flowers, trees, and our site even had a small herb garden which we were invited to use. On weekends, the owners put out a nice spread with free coffee and pastries, which we found to be a very hospitable gesture. The owners are friendly, helpful and really seem to enjoy having guests and meeting new people. The bathrooms are spotless with plenty of hot water. Excellent Wi-Fi, and our spot was the farthest one from the office. I'd highly recommend this park to anyone staying in the area. - Searching4America

Great place. Big and well maintained. No wood fires though. All paved drives with lots of gravel in space areas. Which makes this park nicer that some we have visited also with gravel. WiFi is weak but cell service pretty good so use your hotspot. - Bobcat1

This may be the cleanest RV park we have every stayed in. There is hardly a leaf out of place. The driveways are not overly wide but paved and well maintained. The sites are clean gravel, level and all the utilities work well.
We were disappointed that our online reservation has not been recorded. Fortunately we are here on a day when they were not full. The Wifi works very well. On our evening walk by the river we saw 3 deer and lots of birds. Our site is well shaded. - 2WArvers

Very clean and well-maintained park. Greeters take you to your site and guide you in. If they can, they'll pull you through another site to get to yours. We stayed in the 50amp section, which had reasonably wide, tree lined sites which were covered with pea gravel. Workers came in and raked sites and cleaned tables as soon as people depart. There's not much in the way of amenities beyond a bocce ball court & horseshoes. But, that's also probably why it was so peaceful at night. Sites are away from the road, unlike two other parks we drove through in nearby Graeagle. Day hikes around regional lakes are just a short drive away. - TahoeWino
