The vibe at Wild Plum Campground
Drop some Wild Plum Campground knowledge on us.
We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, love the campground, the river runs along many of the sites, and there is a nice beach and swimming area near site #1. We showed up without reservations hoping that since school started they would have an open space, just barely, we took the last one and that was first thing Friday Morning. It's a popular campground so book your reservations at www.recreation.gov. There are a lot of good sites to pick, we have our favorites, but depending on whether you want a quiet tucked back site, an open site by the river, or share space with fellow campers, the campground has what your looking for. And Pete the campground host was very helpful and welcoming.
Great campground on the edge of cute gold rush town, Sierra City. Situated about 5,000 foot level in the Sierras. Some great sites along the creek with wonderful views. Vault toilets, no showers. Potable water available. Camp host on site. No cell phone coverage at campsite so you'll need to head to the local country store in town for free wifi. If you need a little luxury while there, check out Harrington's resort in town for very nice dinners. Great hike about a 2 mile loop out of the campground with perfect resting spot by huge boulders at half-way point for a snack and rest. Great for younger kids.
