Plumas National Forest Recreation Sites Opened This Weekend
Quincy, Calif., May3, , 2021 – Many Plumas National Forest (PNF) recreation sites in the
Frenchman Lake and Lake Davis Recreation Areas opened this last weekend. Visitors should
expect lower water levels that could preclude placing boat docks in some locations and limit
what size boats might be launched.
Campgrounds along Caribou Road (Gansner/North Fork/Queen Lily) in the Feather River
Canyon (CA Hwy 70) opened last weekend.
“We really appreciate the hard work of our concessionaire getting these sites open early in the
year,” said Chris Carlton, Plumas National Forest Supervisor. The concessionaire, Outdoors in
Plumas (OiP), manages 67 recreation sites across the forest.
Beginning the first week of May, visitors to sites operated by OiP may see small fee increases
($1-$4 for single unit family sites and $5 for group sites) in some campground locations, largely
to cover increased costs of labor and Covid cleaning supplies. The Crocker Guard Station
Recreation Rental (sleeps 10) will see a $30 increase. Fee increases will not affect existing
reservations made through www.Recreation.gov .
Recreation sites at higher elevations such as Lakes Basin and Gold Lake remain covered in snow
and will open later in the season.
