We are SO excited to re-open after the Dixie Fire! Although the fire burnt much of the land around us, our property was not damaged. Note: The nearby town of Greenville was seriously affected though, and there is no longer a gas station (the grocery store IS open). When making plans, you can shop in nearby Chester or Quincy. If you love art, you might drive around Greenville

We are SO excited to re-open after the Dixie Fire! Although the fire burnt much of the land around us, our property was not damaged. Note: The nearby town of Greenville was seriously affected though, and there is no longer a gas station (the grocery store IS open). When making plans, you can shop in nearby Chester or Quincy. If you love art, you might drive around Greenville and view the incredible murals just completed on the burned buildings in town.  Any questions about the fire, just let us know!

Brand new this summer, The Sugar Pine Camp is our newest glampsite! Totally secluded on our family's private 50 acres, The Sugar Pine Camp is nestled on a bluff overlooking Wolf Creek, with views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and with plenty of shade to relax in the summer heat (or put your feet up in the hammock). Spend the day at your own private swimming hole just a few steps away, or hike up the creek to the neighboring 500 acres of National Forest! You can view more photos and adventures on Facebook and Instagram at @ WildPlumas. Note: This site does require a short walk in (300') with a 20' very-steep staircase up to the bluff. The bathroom is at the bottom of this hill. The camp is also about 100' from the creek bluff which is NOT fenced (and a 30' drop down to the creek) so not recommended for toddlers. 

Not sure your plans? We get it! If you need to postpone your reservation, we allow✨no-fee✨re-booking (with at least 72-hour notice of your reservation). 

The Sugar Pine Camp is located at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, just an hour from Lassen National Park, Lakes Basin, and over a million acres of National Forest. Simple but comfortable, the tent is 18-square feet and offers one queen-size bed and one full-size bed. A porta potty is located about 500' from the camp (each of our sites has their own bathroom, they are cleaned between guests, and emptied 1X per week, on Tuesdays. If you would like a brand new porta potty that can be arranged for an extra fee).  Next to the tent is a picnic table, BBQ, and propane fire pit (no wood fires allowed any site this year, but the propane firepit is the next best thing!).  At our nearby owner's cabin is an on-demand hot water shower in the middle of a grove of cottonwood trees. There is plenty of room for additional tents ($10 per night per extra tent, no loud parties please...)

Wild Plumas is secluded, but not "middle-of-nowhere-secluded." Usually, the loudest sounds are the geese, but campers may also hear the train, or sounds from the town of Greenville (two miles downstream). There is also a shooting range about five miles away and some days you may hear noises from that. Otherwise, there are quite a few hike-in meditation or yoga bluffs where you will feel like a world away! You are welcome to bring your pets, but we try to limit our impact on wild animals such as deer and rabbits, so please keep your pups under voice control.

Activities in the area: Fishing or boating at nearby Lake Almanor, Antelope Lake, or Round Valley Lake, is always popular. We also highly recommend a visit to Mount Lassen Volcanic National Park (one hour). Drakesbad hot springs and Feather River Hot Springs is also top on the to-do list! Before you arrive, we will send you a detailed guide on area restaurants, activities, and all our favorite off-the-property epic swimming holes!

If you have any questions about other nearby activities, feel free to reach out to us! Otherwise, many of our campers enjoy the simple things- a lawn chair with a good book in the creek, or watching the kids make little pots out of the clay in the pond. Safety first, but we always encourage adventure, playing in the mud, and free range children.  The Big Bluff Overlook may not have wifi, and we promise you will never be bored!

FAQ's:

Are extra people ok, and is there a charge? Yes that's fine, just no large groups please (for noise reasons). For pricing, please substitute 'tents' for 'people' in the additions as HipCamp does not have the option to add extra tents at this time. The cost is $10 per tent. Any questions, just message me, we can work it out when you get here. (Note: Children do not count in the overall group total so no need to pay extra for them).

Check-in and check-out times: Are 3:00 pm and 10:00 am. Thank you for checking out promptly. We are booked back to back and it does take a few hours to clean the sites. 

Is there an extra cost for animals or vehicles? There is a $20 pet fee for dogs ($20 per reservation, regardless of days or the number of pets). We love your dogs and encourage you to bring them, but it does create considerable extra work for us in order to make sure the next guest has a pet-free experience. You can add this fee in the 'add-on' section at check out. 

How far are the swimming holes from The Sugar Pine Camp? The swimming hole is right at the campsite. 

How many people can The Sugar Pine Camp sleep? Four comfortably, and there is plenty of room for more tents outside.

Are large school groups or weddings permitted? For sure! Just message us for group ideas. We can even offer guided tours of the property.

How do I store food? Only in your vehicle. 

Do I need to worry about bears at the Sugar Pine Camp? Our black bears are not violent, but they can be pesky. Do not invite them over by leaving out food or garbage, please. 

Any other questions or concerns we are just a message away! Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hosting you this summer.

The tent onsite is beautiful and clean with 2 large beds. The site is further into the property than the directions convey, you'll have to drive down a dirt path that does not look like its meant for you to continue down. The shower is out in the open, surrounded by some sparse trees, and the spigot has to be turned on some 20+ feet away to work it. We opted to drive to the shower on our way out, rather than taking the walk down dirt paths to and from it. There is also a beer that snoops around at 9-9:30pm each night looking for food, we made lots of noise while eating and cooking and never saw it.

Hi Amanda, thanks for letting us know about the directions! We do send a detailed map and directions to the person who booked- it looks like you were one of their guests so this is why you didn't receive it (but thanks for bringing that to our attention- we're going to put the map on the Hipcamp listing so that guests like you have access to the info as well...). It is definitely a big property, so our sites are quite distanced from one another. The bear is not a usual guest, the recent drought up high has pushed them closer to town I'm afraid and some of them have discovered the garbage cans of locals. We appreciate you practicing good bear etiquette though and hopefully, we'll continue to not have issues with them. Hope you can visit us again! Josie

Nice site with some welcome shade. Tent was comfortable and clean, nicely outfitted with a pair of Adirondacks on the porch. Picnic table, hammock, and other comforts provided.The loo (porta-potty) was well maintained but a fair distance away near the parking spot with a very steep, slippery (loose dirt) hill in between it and camp. Grateful for the stairs that had been built to help with ascent, but still makes for a tougher climb with gear or when tired/ sleepy. Train is nearby.. the horn at night is loud but has an odd echo-y character that can be quite appealing.

Nicely provided for eating/ lounge area outside tent.Short but steep and slippery ascent from parking/toilet area to campsite bluff

Hi Kris, thanks for the feedback! Steep stairs are definitely the trade-off for the seclusion of the bluff camp (handrails are being added soon!) We do provide a wagon for your belongings, but it does take a little extra work for sure. For anyone looking for a drive-up option, the Wild Rose would be the next fit. Hope we can host you again :) Josie
