Choosing to chill with your crew at Salmon Creek Campground on the North Yuba River is gonna make y’all say “awww ya” with the endless sites and mountain views right outside your tent flap! Whether you roll up in your trusty Winnebago or roll out your tent, you’ll have plenty of shade under the cedar trees, with access to water and restrooms nearby. With dope trails, fishing and even gold panning (what?!) nearby you’ll be in awe ‘til it’s time to go home.

The vibe at Salmon Creek Campground

There are so many lakes to explore. We spoke to some regulars up there and they recommended Salmon Lake and Long Lake. This is a great spot for families with kids. Creeks to walk through, lakes to swim in and rocks to climb. Lake Tahoe without the crowds. :)

We rolled into Salmon Creek Campground at 7:30 PM the Sunday before Memorial Day and grabbed the first open site we saw, grateful to find one at all, though it turned out there were more in the other loop. I'd hoped to stay at one of the lakes further up the Gold Lake Highway but even though it was 82 degrees out, they were snowed in!
The campground has two loops. The left loop (sites 1-18?) is more treed and full of the sound of the rushing creek, which helped mute the noises of kids, dogs etc. (NB it looked like at least one site near the creek was damp at this time of year though.) Sites 19+ are more spread out and have stupendous views of the Sierra Buttes, but are further from the creek. There are bear lockers. Can't wait to return.
